History

The Dixon District Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1909, and officially recognized as a nonprofit business entity by the State of California in 1950.

We promote and sponsor many annual community activities like the historical and exciting 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 Dinner, where we also honor Business of the Year, Ambassador of the Year, and Veteran of the Year. We sponsor candidate forums, and other activities.

We invite you to attend our monthly mixers or our fun Ribbon Cuttings as we welcome our new businesses into the Dixon Chamber. Some newer activities include the monthly Lunch Bunch and Business In Action group.

The Dixon District Chamber of Commerce is a group of dedicated business leaders and volunteers who actively work together to advocate for our town and local businesses.

The Dixon District Chamber of Commerce is located in the historical Downtown area in the Transportation Center at 220 N. Jefferson Street.
