San Francisco Events - Great Dickens Fair & Victorian Christmas Party

"There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor." ~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

You'll find plenty of Christmas cheer at the Great Dickens Fair and Victorian Christmas Party, a unique celebration that evokes the bygone world of the holidays in London. Dickens' era is brought to life with the sights, sounds, and smells of the holiday season from the Victorian age – including street vendors, Christmas carolers, roasting chestnuts, and enticing holiday treats. Shop for one-of-a-kind gifts at merchant shops, stop by the ale house for a tipple, and wander down lamp-lit lanes with a cast of Victorian characters. Features of this year's Great Dickens Fair include:

  • Vintage exhibition halls, theaters, dance halls, and tearooms
  • Seven stages of music, dancing, and entertainment
  • Hundreds of costumed characters, including Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and Bob Cratchit
  • Toy parade, storytelling, and tea time with Alice in Wonderland for the kids
  • Quaint shops with unique gifts including leather, crystals, candles, lingerie, toys, ornaments, ceramics and glass
  • Craft making, hair braiding, fortune telling, and games
  • Five traditional pubs and restaurants serving British Empire cuisine

Don't miss out on the Great Dickens Fair, truly one of the most original San Francisco events of the year. Tickets are on sale now, and the fair takes place at the Cow Palace Exhibition Halls. Do you want to learn more about planning a trip to San Francisco? Please contact us today.
