DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT LANCASTER?

  1. Lancaster is the fifth-largest city in Los Angeles County, California, and the ninth-fastest growing city in the United States. Lancaster is the principal city within the Antelope Valley. Lancaster is located approximately 70 miles north (by road travel) of the city of Los Angeles. The population of Lancaster has grown from 37,000 residents at the time of incorporation in 1977, to 156,633 people as of the 2010 census.

  2. Each spring, the California Poppy Festival draws upward of 60,000 guests to Lancaster City Park to celebrate springtime. The California Poppy Reserve, 20 miles west of Lancaster, boasts one of California's most abundant crops of the state flower, and the Poppy Festival has become a popular event not only for Lancaster residents, but also for visitors from around the world. The California Poppy Festival began as an Earth Day celebration and has grown into an event with over 55 acres of activities and extensive wildflower information.

  3. With family income above the national average (average family income in Lancaster is $61,298), and housing prices below the state average (the median home price in Lancaster is $302,000), 70% of residents of Lancaster own their own homes. Lancaster has also seen a large growth in business over the past decade, with the establishment of large distribution centers for national companies such as Rite Aid, Michaels and Sygma, as well as smaller local businesses and national restaurant chains. The city government has made local business a top priority, offering businesses low-priced land and a streamlined development process with less red tape.

Overnight lows during the coldest months (December–March) can dip into the low 20's Fahrenheit. The Antelope Valley is known for its clean air and blue skies.

Thunderstorms are infrequent but do occur at times in July and August. There is a mild frost throughout March, and temperatures begin to climb in April. Spring wildflowers are abundant, including Lupines, the California Poppy, Fiddlenecks, purple owl's clover, California Goldfields, Creamcups, and Coreopsis.
