About the Great Dickens Christmas Fair:   
The San Francisco Event takes place a short 15-minute drive from Hotel Diva, but you’ll feel like you’re  world away when you enter the Great Dickens Christmas Fair. The streets will be lined with shops, you can grab a bite to eat, and much more.

As you enter, you’ll be greeted by a number of costumed characters who will help to bring the experience to life. One minute you may be talking to a lowly street worker, the next some proper Lords and Ladies may pass by. Rumor has it that even Queen Victoria and Prince Albert may be strolling through the crowds, so you may want to practice your curtsy before attending this San Francisco Event. Of course, lots of Dickens’ characters will be there including Oliver Twist, Ebenezer Scrooge, and David Copperfield.

If you love all things Victorian then you will be thrilled by all the shops you’ll find lining the streets at the Great Dickens Fair. Shop for replica period clothing, handmade candles, perfumes, hats, and much more. You can even get your hair done in true Victorian style. Be entertained by watching a puppet show or getting your portrait drawn and then write home about it by sending a telegram!
