Livermore is home to two of three Defense Program laboratories in the country. Founded in 1952, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has a staff of over 8,000 employees and is home to over 3,500 scientists, engineers, and technicians, as well as professionals encompassing many other disciplines. Sandia National Laboratories/California provides engineering support and systems integration for many national security programs.

The City of Livermore also boasts an historic downtown area, steeped in its roots reflecting the cattle and wine industries that created the thriving community it is today. Once the largest and fastest growing city in the region, for much of its history Livermore has been an agricultural community. Vineyards and ranches prosper within and around the city today.


The Annual Wine Country Festival, Certified Farmer'sMarket, Holiday Parade, and Downtown Trick or Treat bring people to the center of town year round to celebrate the bounties of Livermore's agricultural heritage and spirit of its community. Livermore is also home to the world's longest running light bulb, which has faithfully illuminated Fire Station #6 since 1901.
