When the Village of Fair Oaks was colonized around 1895, the area was home to orange and citrus groves as well as olive orchards and assorted farm animals including chickens.  Today the local chickens are a very real part of everyday life in Fair Oaks which honors these noble birds every year and this year’s Chicken Festival will be held on Saturday, September 20, between the hours of 10 am to 6 pm.  Plaza Park will be the center of activity.  For more information visit the Fair Oaks Recreation and Park District.
