Announcements and Special Events

Bring your little ghosts and goblins to Fair Oaks Village for Safe Halloween, on October 31, from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  Merchants will be handing out candy, and there will be free crafts and activities in Plaza Park, 10224 Fair Oaks Blvd.  For more information, please contact the Fair Oaks Chamber Office at 916-967-2903.

Remember to come by and pick up your kit for our 4th Annual Stocking Challenge! 
  • You buy a kit for $3 (containing a pattern and fabric to make a stocking), you sew the stocking together, and then you decorate/embellish it using more fabric, buttons, ribbon, lace, bells...anything you want to make it unique, fun, and festive.
  • You bring it back to Thistle Dew (by November 30), we give it a number, and hang it up. 
  • For the next two weeks, customers vote on their favorite ones. 
  • We count the votes, and award the prizes: 
            1st Place:   $50 Thistle Dew Gift Certificate
            2nd Place:  $30 Thistle Dew Gift Certificate
            3rd Place:   $20 Thistle Dew Gift Certificate
  • We fill the stockings with goodies and give them to CASA of Sacramento County.  We use the money from the stocking kits to help pay for the candy and other treats we put in the stockings.  CASA works with foster children; for more about them, click here:  Please help us make this another successful challenge.  Thank you!
