The holiday season is fast approaching and the Temescal Telegraph Business District — Oakland is organizing a Temescal Holiday Fair: Creators & Critters for Bay Area shoppers to find beautiful unique gifts while supporting Temescal's independent artists. For the first time ever the Temescal Holiday Fair will feature a FREE petting zoo and FREE photos with the animals! We'll have an alpaca, goats, pigs, bunnies, ducks, and more! Bring the whole family or your group of friends for that perfect holiday card or profile pic with the adorable barnyard animals!
Come meet local Temescal artists, and see their amazing art including batik indigo dyed bandanas, jewelry, screen prints, greeting cards, mosaics, up-cycled light sculptures, and fuse bead pop art. Support your local artists and get all your holiday shopping done!
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 a living holiday wreath, available for sale inside Crimson. Enjoy holiday entertainment and cheer at #CreatorsandCritters with a FREE petting zoo, photo booth and hot chocolate by The CRO Cafe.
