The Great Dickens Christmas Fair in San Francisco is one of the world’s largest celebrations of Charles Dickens and Victorian Christmas.
This is a one-of-a-kind immersive adventure into Victorian London, an elaborate holiday party with hundreds of costumed players performing and interacting with patrons in over 140,000 square feet of theatrically-lit music halls, pubs, dance floors, and festive shops.
Meet Father Christmas, Ebenezer Scrooge, Mr. & Mrs. Fezziwig, or the Ghost of Christmas Present throughout four acres of Victorian theaters, pubs, and dance halls. Enticing aromas of cinnamon roasted almonds and hearty foods fill the air. Dozens of lamplit shops are filled to overflowing with handmade gifts. The Great Dickens Christmas Fair is a time traveler’s delight and one-of-a-kind way to celebrate the holidays.
