Ceres is known for being one of the Central Valley’s richest agricultural agricultural areas. In fact, the name, Ceres, comes from the ancient Roman goddess of agriculture, grain crops, and fertility. It was first settled by Daniel Whitmore in 1867, and its newspaper The Ceres Courier has been in publication for over a century, since 1910. This tight-knit community of about 45,000 is a small but growing town.
 
Ceres is home to a large assortment of fun festivals and fairs. Every spring, Ceres has its annual Street Faire. For a weekend, the streets of downtown Ceres explode with countless food vendors and retail stands where you can get freshly made food, handmade treats, antiques, jewelry, and other handmade goods of all kinds. During this festival, there is also a car and motorcycle show, booths, children’s rides, and live entertainment of all sorts! Summers are exciting for the Ceres Concerts in the Park performances: for over 30 years, residents gather every Tuesday evening during the summer to listen to music groups of varying genres and time periods.
 
Holidays are a big deal in Ceres. Every year, there’s an exciting Halloween festival with a trunk-or-treat, free petting zoo, carnival games, face painting, candy, haunted house, a mind reader, and crafts. In December, the town puts on its Christmas Tree Lane festival and parade. A neighborhood of homes get all decked out in extreme amounts of lights and christmas decorations of all kinds. Together with the parade of vehicles overflowing with Christmas lights, it is the highlight of the season for many.
 
Ceres gets an A in the education department. Its Whitmore Charter High School has been named the #1 public high school in the county for its high test scores, clubs and activities, and diversity.
This charming town is a great place for kids and families. There are so many organizations, groups, and activities to include your child in. Ceres has two dance studios both with very talented teachers, Footnotes Dance Studio and Steps Dance Arts Center. Or involve your child in karate classes, one of a large array of specialized classes and programs provided by Ceres Parks and Recreation, or on a sports team in one of the Ceres sports leagues (like baseball or soccer). The Ceres River Bluff Regional Park has a pond alongside soccer and softball fields, playground, and volleyball and basketball courts.
 
Newly-renovated downtown Ceres is a great place to go shopping or grab a bite to eat. The restaurants, shops and bars make it a great gathering spot for locals.
 
Ceres is home to a small but fun-loving community of people. If you love the sound of a tight-knit, agriculturally rich town, this might just be the place for you!
