Second Annual Temescal Holiday Fair


The holiday season is fast approaching and the Temescal Telegraph Business District - Oakland is organizing our second annual Temescal Holiday Fair: Creators & Critters for Bay Area shoppers to find beautiful & unique gifts while supporting Temescal's independent artists. We are returning this year with another FREE petting zoo along with FREE photos with the animals! We'll have an alpaca, goats, pigs, bunnies, ducks, and more! Bring the whole family or your favorite group of friends for that perfect holiday card or profile pic with the adorable barnyard animals.

Come meet and support local Temescal artists, and see their amazing art including batik indigo dyed bandanas, jewelry, screen prints, greeting cards, ceramics, and more! Support your local artists and get all your holiday shopping done all in the same place!

Get crafty with the Temescal Neighborhood Council's luminary-making booth where you can decorate a luminary bag with messages and designs of hope. Crimson Horticultural Rarities will have a table to demonstrate how to make holiday wreaths, also available for sale. Enjoy holiday entertainment and cheer at #CreatorsandCritters with a FREE petting zoo, free craft project by Temescal Neighbors and hot chocolate by The CRO Cafe. #DiscoverTemescal
