The past comes alive on the streets of Bakersfield with an interactive journey through the history of Kern County. This live theatre experience centers around actors playing the parts of some of our area’s most famous - and infamous - residents greet visitors at each of eleven stops spread throughout downtown. Beginning at the Arts Council of Kern, colorful characters like Colonel Thomas Baker, Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren, Madge the Madam, the devious outlaw Dick Fellows, and many others chart a path through some of the most exciting stories in Kern’s rich history. 

Tours begin at 10AM and end at 3:30PM each day as local performers in period dress shepherd groups through an historical journey into their own back yard.
