Like a Victorian Christmas card that has come to life, the Great Dickens Christmas Fair is a unique holiday celebration with vintage appeal. Taking place at the Cow Palace Exhibition Halls every weekend through December 18, this festive event features hundreds of costumed characters, one-of-a-kind holiday gifts, and tempting Christmas treats like roasted chestnuts. Over three acres of space are transformed into Victorian-era London, including pubs, theaters, dance floors, music halls, tearooms, shops, and lamplit lanes. Street vendors call out, holiday carolers sing familiar tunes, and the spirit of the season fills every decorated lane. Tickets to the Great Dickens Christmas Fair are available for advance purchase online for $30 for adults, $14 for children 5-12, and free for children under 5. The fair is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 7 pm.
