About Palm Springs Sister Cities 

Palm Springs Sister Cities was created to enhance world peace by promoting and servicing relationships between the City of Palm Springs and other similar government units in foreign countries to develop closer understanding and cooperation between people of those respective governmental units. We hope to ensure a world of peace through goodwill, compassion, and helping other cultures.

At the heart of all Sister City programs is an agreement, signed by the mayors of each Sister City, confirming the commitment of each community to the Sister City program. Sister Cities agree to send and receive delegations of various types, including political and business leaders, arts and cultural representatives, educators, and technical experts because these exchanges promote cross-cultural understanding, municipal and specialized cooperation, and business opportunities. Each Sister City is supported by a committee of volunteers who are committed to the goals and objectives of the programs.

Palm Springs had a sister city relationship not only with Victoria, B.C. Canada in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but also with Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and Nikko, Japan. Our most recent sister city relationship is with San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
