Lambtown History

In the 1940s and 1950s, Dixon became known nationally for its sheep production. Marks Meat opened in the 1940′s and was sold to Stoeven Bros. in the 1950′s. Superior Farms purchased the Company in the 1980′s. Superior Meat Packing remains one of the largest employers in Dixon.

Another contributor to the lamb industry was Mace Meat Company. Mace was sold to Armour Foods in the 70′s and Monfort bought the Company in the 1980′s. Sadly, Monfort has closed its doors.

It was in Dixon, during the mid-eighties, that the celebration of lamb came into being. The festival founders wanted a local event singling out Dixon as a major sheep producer in the region, but mostly to celebrate the taste of California lamb.

Here, in the year 2008, Lambtown is gearing up for its 22nd wonderful year. A variety of food booths featuring assorted lamb plates and various ethnic dishes will be set-up throughout the festival. Lamb cooking demonstrations, refreshments, including beer, fruit smoothies, water and sodas will be available. Exhibitors galore will delight you with their specialties along with the variety of food vendors throughout the Dixon May Fair grounds.

Activities will include: spinners and weavers, wool, mohair and alpaca fleece show and sale, fiber and fine arts. You will have the opportunity to meet your elected officials at the VIP tent.

There will be pony rides and a petting zoo at the event. Also, T & M miniature Railroad will be available to transport you around to the various events.
