It’s Valencia’s 50th anniversary, and we’re celebrating with one simple message: thank you. We’re also giving you the chance to join the fun by visiting our events around town or by submitting your own “thank you” message below. The history is pretty cool – Newhall Land and Farming Co. started selling homes in the master-planned community of Valencia in 1967, and twenty years later the four unincorporated communities of Saugus, Newhall, Canyon Country and Valencia merged to form the city of Santa Clarita. So, Valencia and Santa Clarita are both celebrating milestones this year – it’s Santa Clarita’s 30th and Valencia’s big five-oh. It’s definitely a time for celebration.
