About the Street Faire

Proudly produced by the Old Town Elk Grove Foundation, the Dickens Street Faire is the traditional start of the Elk Grove Yuletide Season. Held every year on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving, it is a wonderful and exciting experience you can share with your whole family. See Santa get rescued by our trusted fire department. Stroll through Old Town and explore local shops, enjoy holiday music, craft and vendor booths, eat delicious holiday foods, meet wonderful Christmas characters, and mingle with your friends and neighbors.

This year, over 150 arts and craft vendors, commercial vendors and community groups fill Elk Grove Boulevard from 2nd Avenue to School Street and in the Old Town Plaza, while the food vendors are conveniently distributed throughout the area. Free entertainment is available all day featuring live music and performers, FREE photo opportunities with Santa (bring your own camera please), Christmas carolers, a new holiday ice carving demonstration and much more. And don’t miss the all new FREE kids craft corner and character photos in the Old Town Elk Grove Plaza from 10 am to 5 pm.

At 6 pm the sun sets and the street comes alive with the annual Parade of Lights. At the end of the parade Santa will disembark his sleigh in time to help lead the crowd in singing Christmas carols and will then flip the switch to light the town Christmas tree at Walnut Street.
