The Great Dickens Christmas Fair

“I will honor Christmas in my heart,” vows Ebenezer Scrooge near the end of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, “and try to keep it all the year.” For five weekends around Thanksgiving through Christmas, the 750-plus costumed performers at The Great Dickens Christmas Fair honor this declaration.

Lauded as “charmingly over-the-top” by the San Francisco Chronicle and “dazzling” by the San Francisco Examiner, the fest comprises more than three acres of exhibition halls. Inside, the fair’s creative team recreates Dickens’ Victorian-era London, complete with labyrinthine lanes, scone-scented bakeries, quaint pubs, and a rowdy dockside. In the streets and on seven stages, carolers entertain crowds alongside notable guests, including Queen Victoria and Scrooge himself.

Entertainment is enjoyable, food is good, lots of interactive folk in costume, booths for buying are general and also Dickens era clothing Lots of walking It is somewhat like going to an interactive fair

Attendees will enjoy the Fair best if they are comfortable interacting with the actors that stroll through the venue The more you interact, the better it is! It can be a little too much if you are on the shy side A great place to get into holiday spirit!
