Step into the enchanting world of Charles Dickens' London and discover how the holidays were celebrated in the Victorian era. Unlike any other celebration that you'll find, the Great Dickens Christmas Fair is a unique, vintage festival with live entertainment, incredible shopping, and delicious British Empire cuisine. Three acres of the Cow Palace have been transformed into Victorian London, complete with lamp-lighted streets, boisterous pubs and wondrous theaters, music halls, dance parties, tearooms, and specialty shops. Eat, drink, dance, and be merry as you mingle with hundreds of joyful performers and characters. Watch a toy parade, dance to brass bands, play parlor games, and sing along to Christmas carols. Feast on holiday treats, and then visit the pub to wash it all down with a pint or two. And don't forget the shopping – you'll find an amazing variety of one-of-a-kind treats to browse and buy. Shop for handmade jewelry, leather goods, candles, crystals, wooden toys, glass art, antiquarian books, candies, and much more.
