Event Overview:

A Victorian Christmas Card Come to Life!

Enter the world of Charles Dickens' Victorian London, where it's always Christmas Eve and the streets resound with revelry of the Season! Lively calls of street vendors ring out and mingle with holiday carolers; tempting aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty foods fill the air; enticing shops overflow with one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts.

To recreate old London town, we transform over three acres of vintage exhibition halls into lamplit lanes, pubs and theatres, dance floors and music halls, tearooms and shops. Hundreds of costumed characters from genteel to boisterous bring the town to life and interact with patrons.

Join us again for our 2016 Season - 5 Weekends Nov. 19-Dec. 18, including the Friday after Thanksgiving!

Experience a one-of-a-kind holiday adventure for all ages ~ the young, and the young at heart.

Exhibitor Information:

The Great Dickens Christmas Fair ~ the Bay Area favorite ~ returns! The fair is a theatrical re-creation of nineteenth century London with all the color, charm, and merriment of Christmas during the time of Charles Dickens. The air is filled with enticing aromas of festive foods and the sounds of street vendors hawking their wares. The streets are filled with characters from Dickens' A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield, and Nikolas Nickelby, not to mention Mr. Dickens himself! First-time vendors should be aware that this is a highly themed street fair, designed to create a total immersion environment. All booth workers need to help us maintain the public's illusion by staying in costume and learning a bit of English cockney. The magic of the Dickens Fair, and what sets it apart, is the detailed theatrical setting we create together and the sense of ensemble and Christmas spirit put forth by all participants.
