As the Christmas Season draws near, Dickens Fairs around the country begin their celebration of the acclaimed novelist Charles Dickens. These Fairs will immerse you in Dickens’ own Victorian London, filled with the characters from his stories.

If you’ve never attended one before you are in for a wondrous adventure! Vendors, Musicians, and Entertainers all dressed in Victorian era clothing.

You can enjoy all the festivities in your everyday clothes or join the experience and dress the part!
