The Ojai Valley Museum (OVM) is launching a year-long series of events to celebrate its 50th birthday, and the 100th anniversary of downtown Ojai’s rejuvenation.
The OVM’s Jubilee Year celebration will include activities at the museum’s Ojai Avenue location and elsewhere, and will run from Ojai Day Oct. 15 through Ojai Day 2017, according to Wendy Barker, OVM director.
