Downtown Tracy Welcomes You
When planning a visit to Tracy, you’ll want to come early and stay late!
Once you arrive…relax and enjoy our warm temperatures and even warmer hospitality in our beautiful historic downtown.
Tracy is known for its many hometown events including the annual Farmers’ Market on Saturdays on 10th Street, Block Parties in the newly renovated downtown 6th Street Plaza, Girls Night Out and the Fourth of July Day-In-the-Park which is a taste of true small town Americana with hot air balloons, arts and crafts, and a spectacular fireworks display. Later in July, the Tracy City Center Association and the City of Tracy will be co-sponsoring, for the first time ever in downtown Tracy, the “Then & Now” Car Show in late July; a fun filled day for the entire family.
The annual Tracy Chamber of Commerce California Dry Bean Festival held in early September along with the Tracy City Center Association’s signature Fall Wine Stroll help to bring in the Fall season. And you won’t want to miss the Holidays in Downtown Tracy to kick off a fun filled holiday season.

TRACY RECEIVES 2012 SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY BLUEPRINT AWARD
CITY RECEIVES A 2012 SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY BLUEPRINT AWARD
Honoring Downtown Revitalization, the Downtown Plaza
October 8, 2012(Tracy, CA) – The City of Tracy is honored with a 2012 San Joaquin Valley Blueprint Award in recognition of Downtown Revitalization. The City will receive the award at the Regional Policy Conference luncheon on October 12, 2012 at Tachi Palace in Lemoore, CA.
The San Joaquin Valley Blueprint is a joint initiative of the Councils of Governments representing each of the region's eight counties, the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and the Great Valley Center.
The City of Tracy’s Downtown Plaza is the signature-gathering place of downtown Tracy located at Central Avenue and Sixth Street. The Downtown Plaza features a pavilion area with amenities for performances and community events, parking for automobiles and bicycles, a 4,000 square foot lawn area, shade trees, an interactive fountain, and water efficiencies such as a rain garden and permeable pavers. Within the last five years, the city has revitalized the downtown area with the reconstruction of the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts, newly constructed Tracy Transit Center, and construction of the downtown plaza. All of which created a connective public space that has ignited public interest in downtown as the distinctive center of the City.
The city’s investment of the plaza demonstrated the city’s commitment to downtown revitalization efforts. This investment has helped position the downtown for private investment and development of the Bowtie Area.
City Manager, Leon Churchill states, “Tracy was very fortunate to take advantage of the opportunity to create a great downtown space. The project is also the product of innovation and tenacity shown by City staff and contractors, and we are much better for it. “
