A cherished Bay Area holiday tradition, The Great Dickens Christmas Fair & Victorian Holiday Party returns to the historic Cow Palace for five weekends. Each holiday season, the elves of The Great Dickens Christmas Fair magically transform over three acres of exhibition halls into the delightfully lively world of Charles Dickens’ London. Cheerful calls of street vendors meld with songs of holiday carolers; enticing aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty foods fill the air; and inviting shops overflow with one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts. As they explore the theatres, pubs and winding lanes of Victorian London, guests are surprised and amazed at every turn by the vibrant street scenes and colorful characters out of Victorian life and fiction, including, of course, Mr. Dickens’ lively imagination.
