Visit Bakersfield is funded annually by a small percentage of the city's transient occupancy tax. Through Visit Bakersfield's marketing and sales, it is able to attract groups and leisure travelers to Bakersfield. The increased travel and tourism to Bakersfield results in an increase in transient occupancy tax and sales tax.
Established in 1967, the Bakersfield CVB, a 501(C)(6) corporation, is managed by a division of the City of Bakersfield City Manager's Office and is overseen by a 13-member Board of Directors.
