The Great Dickens Christmas Fair


The Cow Palace magically transforms into Victorian London with theatrically-lit music halls, pubs, dance floors, and Christmas shops.


What better way to kick off the holiday season than by going back in time to Victorian London during The Great Dickens Christmas Fair? This is a one-of-a-kind holiday adventure and elaborate party with hundreds of costumed players performing and interacting with patrons. The Cow Palace magically transforms into Victorian London with theatrically-lit music halls, pubs, dance floors, and Christmas shops. Be on the lookout for colorful characters from both literature and history. Stop and have afternoon tea or grab a bag of warm roasted chestnuts. The perfect way to start your holiday season! Victorian-era costumed participants are welcome and encouraged.

We do not share specific pickup information on our website, as we have found over the years that other travel groups tend to use our pickup points without ours or the property owner's permission, which reflects poorly on our company and hurts our ability to offer convenient pickup points to our clients. Accordingly, we ask that you not suggest our pickup points to other groups you travel with, as "the more the merrier" does not often apply to parking lots. Your understanding is appreciated.
