The City of Palm Springs 85th Anniversary: Culture, Real Estate and Celebrities

As the Coachella Valley rouses from its winter slumber, our desert resort community will come together to celebrate an auspicious occasion – the City of Palm Springs 85th anniversary. From far and wide, our community is invited to celebrate the City’s illustrious past and undoubtedly bright future at a fun-filled, action-packed, all-day-long birthday party. The birthday bash will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2023 from noon to 9:00 p.m. in Downtown Palm Springs and the Downtown Park. The celebratory schedule will feature fun and activities for the entire
family, including:

  • A stupendous classic car parade called “Cruising Through the Years,” featuring a slew of local celebrities, beloved community leaders, and city founders and originators riding in 85 beautiful classic vehicles originating from 1938 – when Palm Springs was first established – to the present day!
