Stockton TodayThe guide was updated:
Stockton has been culturally and ethnically diverse since its beginning as a muddy-street gold-rush camp. This diverse community includes a large Chinese, Mexican, Japanese, and Filipino population. Today’s diversity is reflected in Stockton street names, architecture, and in the faces and heritage of its citizens. Throughout the year, multi-cultural festivals reflect that diversity in the microcosm that Stockton has become for the world. The city was voted an All-America City in 1999, 2004, and most recently in 2015.
