After two years, The Great Dickens Christmas Fair is finally back in person. Now in its 38th season, this is your chance to visit old-timey London, at the historic Cow Palace Exhibition Halls.

The Great Dickens Christmas Fair is a one-of-a-kind immersive adventure into Victorian London ~ an elaborate holiday party with hundreds of costumed players performing on 7 stages and interacting with patrons in over 140,000 square feet of theatrically-lit music halls, pubs, dance floors, and festive shops. It’s a twilight evening in Charles Dickens’ London Town – a city of winding lanes filled with 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 handmade gifts. The Dickens Christmas Fair is a treasured Bay Area tradition since 1970 and a splendid way to celebrate the holidays.

The Fair returns in 2022 for five weekends including the Friday after Thanksgiving: November 19-20, 25-27; Dec. 3-4, 10-11, 17-18, from 10 am – 6 pm.

Now through October 15, Early Bird tickets will save you $15 per adult ticket and $7 per youth ticket for the first two weekends, while supplies last. Please note, attendance will be capped on a daily basis. All ticket sales are for specific days and are purchasable online only. Buy Tickets.
