Oh Ojai, Oh Ojai
Where the stars they shine so bright
Oh Ojai, Oh Ojai
Love your peace and calm -- I hear
The birds a-singing
Oh Ojai, Oh Ojai
Topa Topas above us all

We love you Ojai, Oh yes we do
This little Valley, this valley of ours.

Oh Ojai, Oh Ojai
The valley so serene
Oh Ojai, Oh Ojai
Warm summer evenings
and the band's a-playin'
Oh Ojai, Oh Ojai
With your oak trees Oh so tall

We love you Ojai, Oh yes we do
This little Valley, this valley of ours.

  A children's march midway through the concerts is a perennial favorite of Ojaians of all ages.

      All proceeds go to support the concert and other charitable projects.

Come Early, Bring a Picnic, and Enjoy!
