Yuba City was founded in 1849 on land purchased from John Sutter by Samuel Brannan, Pierson Reading and Henry Cheever. They came to establish a distribution center for supplying the Gold Rush 49ers. Sam Brannan, as senior partner, had the town site laid out and hired agents to sell lots. Today he is honored with a city park named for him. Yuba City is home to the headquarters of Sunsweet Growers Incorporated. The company operates the largest dried fruit plant in the world.
Founded in the 1800's Yuba City has a number of historic homes that have been maintained over the years. Looking for a unique cultural experience? Visit Yuba City on the first weekend in November for the annual Nagar Kirtan & Sikh Parade. A festival that brings in over 70,000 people.
