About the Chamber
The Dixon District Chamber of Commerce is located in the historical Downtown area in the Transportation Center at 220 N. Jefferson Street. We are open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday.
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 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.
We also offer “Taking Care of Business” on a weekly basis, a no-cost, no obligation one hour consultation with a professional business development counselor who will provide you with tips and practical solutions for your business or organization. In addition, we have many active committees for you to get involved in.
We promote and sponsor many annual community activities like the historic Dixon May Fair Parade, which is the oldest State affiliated parade. Some other events include the popular Epicurean Fete-Wine & Food Festival, and the annual Citizen of the Year, Business of the Year, Ambassador of the Year, and Veteran of the Year Awards Night. We sponsor candidate forums, and other activities.
