Join the Town of Oakland for A Great Small Town Christmas, December 4th, 2021. We have many free and family-friendly activities in downtown Oakland while you work on your Christmas shopping with handcrafted and curated gifts.
On Saturday, December 4th the fun continues with Soup N’ Santa! There will be multiple nonprofits handing out free soup (donations are appreciated), the chance to visit with Santa at Smoke n Mirrors, free sleigh rides, live music, and local shopping. This event will last from 11am to 2pm.
While you’re enjoying all the fun activities make sure to visit the House of Hope Cash Drive on Second Street from 9am-noon. Due to covid the House of Hope will only be accepting cash donations at this time. The House of Hope provides short-term emergency assistance to those in need who cannot receive this particular help anywhere else.
And while you're shopping, don't forget to look for the elf! The Lucky Elf promotion in downtown Oakland continues through Monday, December 20th. For every $25 spent in participating Oakland stores you visit, you receive a chance to win a variety of local gift certificates. Bring your Elf Cards to Oakland City Hall to enter the drawing!
