During the month of February, there is always a special focus on flowers and love... and chocolate! This is, of course, in honor of Valentine's Day. The Old Town Business Association and AAUW are hosting a special event on Feb 8th.
Smooth, silky, sweet and sumptuous... there are many ways to describe the experience of chocolate and we will celebrate those senses from 12-3pm on Sunday, February 8th in Old Town.
Come on down and stroll Old Town and taste the special treats provided by various merchants and restaurants.
For the purchase of a $20 ticket, you'll have a chance to get tastes of chocolate at any venue, and sample all varieties of items. Last year our participating merchants had items such as Cherry Cordials, Chocolate Covered Oreos, Chocolate Biscotti, Warm Bittersweet Chocolate Cake, Fudge, Chocolate Mocha Cheese cake, Raspberry Truffle Brownies, Chocolate Fondue to Chocolate Croissants, just to name a few.
There will be chocolate demonstrations by “Blabbermouth Chocolate”, and Hugs & Smoochies provided free from The Sugar Plump Fairies!
Enjoy some surprise entertainment and a chance to win one of the raffle gifts donated by the Auburn Community. All shops and restaurants will be open.
We encourage singles, couples and groups to join us for our 10th annual A Taste of Chocolate. Some restaurants will be pairing their entries with special dessert wines for an additional charge.

04-04-2015 Easter - Bunny Hop

530-888-7355
Streets of Old Town Auburn
Auburn, CA 95603

Come join us for Old Town Auburn's best Easter event. Bring children of all ages for our 3rd ANNUAL ‘BUNNY HOP' on Saturday, April 4th, 2015 from 11-1:30pm. The Bunny Hop is free and rumor has it that the Easter Bunny will be in Old Town that day.
The fun starts at Herschel Young Park (101 Sacramento Street, next to Bistro 103) where "Bunny Hoppers" pick up a blank "Word Game Ticket''. The Hoppers then visit participating Old Town merchants who display an Easter marker (to be determined) in their window. Each business will have an Easter egg hidden in the store with a secret word on it, which they will fill in on the game ticket.
When all the words are collected, and if they are entered in the proper place on the ticket, it will complete an Easter greeting. Once finished, children turn in the correctly completed tickets for a chance to win the Grand Easter Basket!
Many of the merchants will have Easter treats available and/or special sales!
Come join the fun.
For more information, call Kristen from Marquis, Etc at (530) 889-2633.

A little bit of Mexico comes to Old Town Auburn.

The Folklorico Dancer Troupe from Sacramento, and pony rides by Pony Up in Newcastle, always a favorite with the buckaroos, will be back again this year along with Mobile Rocks climbing wall and piñatas for the children, and a street dance from 8-9pm. Also a Salsa Making contest with local restaurants - tasters determine the winners! Tasting Kits $2.00 each. And, weather permitting… Chano Uribe will bring his “dancing horses” to show off some fancy foot work. As in the past, this year’s celebration is co-sponsored by Sun River Clothing Co, along with Cafe Delicias, and Tio Pepe’s and the Old Town Business Association. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration for families and children and alcohol is not sold or encouraged at this event. Join us for music, food, vendors, piñatas, dancing, and fun for the entire family.
