The Great Dickens Christmas Fair & Victorian Holiday Party

Last year I had the pleasure of attending the famous Christmas Dickens Fair in San Francisco's Cow Palace while visiting friends. I was taken by surprise from the attention to detail, the costumes, food, alcohol, entertainment and design were overwhelming wonderful. I usually walk away from these types of events un-impressed but this was an awesome experience. It really felt like I walked into another time and place. If you are in the Northern California Area or visiting CA in the next few weeks please check out this once a yearly event.

The Great Dickens Christmas Fair:
A holiday adventure into Victorian London, partying with hundreds of costumed players in over 120,000 square feet of theatrically-lit music halls, pubs, dance parties and Christmas shops on winding lanes. It's a twilight evening in Charles Dickens' London Town - a city filled with lively and colorful characters from both literature and history. Enticing aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty foods fill the air. Cries of street vendors hawking their wares ring out above the bustling crowd. Dozens of lamplit shops are filled to overflowing with Christmas presents.

Tickets are only 25 well spent dollars!
Here are lots of photos and a sneak peek of what to expect and see when inside the dickens fair!

And here is the official website for the Dickens Fair.
