Downtown Amador City will be full of holiday tidings from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.on Saturday, Dec. 8.

The town merchants celebrate the Christmas season with fresh pine garlands and Christmas lights hung from century old buildings and Amador City shops, a famous bakery, restaurants and a local winery tasting room welcome visitors, ready for the holidays.

Throughout the day there will be an array of Christmas comestibles available in shops. Andrae’s Bakery offers a full espresso bar, baked goods, sandwiches, artisan breads and more. Taste Sacramento craft beer on the porch overlooking town.

Buffalo Chips Restaurant renders handmade pies, an old-fashioned soda fountain and great burgers made from locally ground meat. After the town tree lighting the restaurant features its traditional polenta dinner served with Italian chicken sausage and mixed greens, finished with bread pudding and hot buttered rum.

Spoils from two new candy shops are perfect for stockings. Find chocolates with sea salt and caramel at The Chocolate Lady and hard-to-find, old-fashioned candies at The Diggins Candy Shop. Decorate cupcakes and roast s’mores throughout the day at Diggins.

Stop by the Imperial Hotel for the full bar, California wine country meals, and lodging.

Feist Wines offers wine tasting and the country swing of the Slade Rivers Band from 2 to 5 p.m. Pair Amador County wine with cheese and charcuterie plates. Wine Tree Farm will release its new brand, Corinne, and pour estate Rhone variety wines for tasting on the bank of Amador Creek by the bonfire.

A local brass band will bring festive music to the air and local folk singer Hal Gamble will serenade with classics and Christmas carols.

As the day draws to a close, roast chestnuts over the open fire and join the crowd for the tree lighting ceremony on the bridge at 5 p.m.
