The Great Dickens Christmas Fair

30 Years and Going Strong!

The Great Dickens Christmas Fair transforms the Cow Palace in Daly City into an authentic recreation of Victorian London - the Bay Area's best holiday "stay-cation" of 2008!

The 30th Annual Great Dickens Christmas Fair
Four Weekends including the Friday after Thanksgiving
28 November through 21 December 2008
11 am - 7 pm in the Cow Palace Exhibition Halls

The day after Thanksgiving, escape to London, England and a Victorian wonderland of waltzing, laughing, feasting, singing and shopping for treasures. The only event of its kind in the world, featuring 600 performers. We have transformed 100,000 square feet of the Cow Palace Exhibition Halls into "London in San Francisco."

Charles Dickens' message is even more relevant today: that kindness and caring are better than greed and distrust.

Guests of all ages will delight in entertainments on six stages and throughout the streets of "Old London Town."
Here's a small sample of what's new this year:
  • The Metropolitan Music Hall at the Victoria & Albert Theatre
  • The fabulous Habbi Ru Middle Eastern Dancers
  • An All-new Saucy French Postcard Revue!
  • New juried crafts booths including Dancing Flame Candles, Toadstool Fairy Art, Plumania Feather Creations, Doone's Dejavu and Allen Jeffrey's Fine Gentlemen's Attire
  • A Children's Tour of London
  • The Punch & Judy Stage
By coming early in the season, you will enjoy the best selection in fine and-crafted gifts, from first edition prints, glassworks, and pewter goblets to clothing, jewelry, toys and Christmas florals. From sugar plums to hot buttered rum it all awaits you at the Great Dickens Christmas Fair and Victorian Holiday Party!

Tickets are only $19.00 when you order online today (price at the gate is $22.00). Enjoy the convenience of having your tickets waiting for you at Will Call. Children 5 and under are free, and kids ages 5-11 are always discounted at only $10.00. For Group Discounts (15 or more), call (800) 510-1558 for ordering.
