The Village of Oxford is one square mile within the Township of Oxford and includes the Central Business District. M-24, which bisects Oxford, is an important north-south corridor providing direct access to I-69 linking Flint and Port Huron. It is also linked to I-75 with its amazing connections throughout Metro Detroit and the state, placing Oxford at an excellent juncture. The Village of Oxford is located 9 miles north of The Palace of Auburn Hills.
For over 130 years Oxford has been developing character: the village maintains a small town look even with the addition of modern amenities. Topnotch schools and a new, state-of-the-art public library attests to the modern status of this area. The downtown offers an array of unique shops, restaurants, a 7-screen movie theater, and business services. In 2006 and 2007, Oxford became a Oakland County Main Street Community. Downtown Oxford is also host to many wonderful events that are sure to please. Festivals such as Stew Stroll in February, Celebrate Oxford in August, and the Scarecrow Festival in the fall help to define the quality of life in Oxford.

Thursday night Concerts in Centennial Park take place from late May through mid-September from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. each week, providing residents and visitors alike a free night of live music.

Also, while in town, be sure to stop by the Oxford Village Offices and say hello to our friendly and helpful staff and pick up a current calendar of events. The residential districts of the community range from newly-built homes and condos to older homes which have historical character or significance, all of which contributes to the overall quaint character of our community.
