Don't miss the cherished Bay Area holiday tradition, The Great Dickens Christmas Fair & Victorian Holiday Party at the historic Cow Palace as it magically transforms 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. Explore the theatres, pubs and winding lanes of Victorian London. Surprises at every turn of the vibrant street scenes and colorful characters out of Victorian life and fiction, including, of course, Mr. Dickens’ lively imagination. 

Seven stages offer entertainments, ranging from the family-friendly to the bold and even slightly outrageous. Families may choose to enjoy an opera gala, children’s shows, melodramas, music-hall turns, and dance performances in upscale settings. 

And don't forget to bring your appetite when you visit — there’s ever so much to eat and drink! Feast on delicious foods from the British Empire and beyond, from exquisite savories to heavenly handcrafted sweets. You can also enjoy a traditional English high tea with scones and finger sandwiches – anytime is teatime at the Dickens Fair.
