About the Chamber

The Dixon District Chamber of Commerce is located in the historic Downtown area in the Transportation Center at 220 N. Jefferson Street. We are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday. We are closed on all official holidays.

The Dixon District Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1909, and officially acknowledged as a nonprofit business entity by the State of California in 1950. We are recognized by the federal government as a tax exempt 501c6 nonprofit organization.

We are a group of dedicated business, association, and nonprofit leaders and volunteers who actively work together to advocate for our city, local businesses and community organizations, and the quality of life in our community.

We invite you to attend our monthly Mixers or Ribbon Cuttings where we welcome new member businesses and organizations into the Dixon Chamber. Some newer activities include the monthly Lunch Bunch and and the quarterly Business In Action group. All of them offer you a chance to make new connections, network and promote your business or association.

We offer Member Orientations once on a month, where you can learn all of the benefits of Chamber membership, and how we can help your business or organization be more successful.  We can also do one-on-one orientations, based on individual business needs.

In addition, we have many active committees for you to get involved in.

We promote and sponsor annual community activities like the historic Dixon May Fair Parade, which is the oldest State affiliated parade, and the annual Awards Night where we honor the Citizen of the Year, Business of the Year, Ambassador of the Year, and Veteran of the Year. We sponsor candidate forums, Trunk or Treat for chamber members, and the most recently – the Concerts in the Plaza and Dia De Los Muertos.
