The Kern Oil Festival, formerly known as the Kern Energy Festival, is a daylong celebration of one of Kern County’s largest economic engines. It seeks to educate the community about the positive impacts the oil industry has on our local and state economies. The Kern Oil Festival is brought to the community by the Kern Energy Foundation.

Attendees can expect a popular Kid Zone area with fun and interactive exhibits that teach about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The Kern Oil Festival shows children the kids of career opportunities available to them, and shows families what we owe to this powerful industry that touches every part of our lives. Families can also enjoy several other activities including a bounce house and music, as well as food and beverage from local vendors.

Industry-related companies will have large equipment on display to answer questions about how the machinery is used for operations. These heavy pieces of machinery are rarely on public display, so this is a unique opportunity to see equipment used to generate energy. Companies will also display innovative technologies that have been adopted to improve use and efficiency within the oil industry.
