Celebrate the Christmas season in a charming way by attending the annual Charles Dickens Christmas Fair and Victorian Holiday Party. The event is decorated to look like you are taking a trip to London, viewing people who are dressed to look like they live in the time of Charles Dickens. Street vendors ring bells while interacting with the carolers who walk along the streets.
While you're at the fair, you're greeted with delightful aromas of everything from cakes to nuts roasting on an open fire. Several shops offer gifts of a Victorian design as well as a few modern items. Over three acres of land are transformed to look like the streets of London. The event is complete with Christmas decorations, lights and buildings that include a pub and theater. You'll also find a dance floor and tearoom. There are hundreds of people in costume who bring the Charles Dickens era to life in a fun and exciting way for children and adults. This is a fair and holiday party that you are sure not to forget as you can hear stories made popular by Charles Dickens while listening to classic music as you walk along the streets.
From the actors who interact with guests to the beautiful buildings that are created, the Charles Dickens Christmas Fair is an event to attend while in San Francisco. There are dining and shopping areas as well as entertainment on a daily basis while the fair is set up in the city. After leaving, you can tour some of the other holiday attractions or shopping centers in the area.
