A Holiday Marketplace
The Dickens Christmas Show & Festivals is a unique national award-winning event comprised of a multitude of shopping and entertainment options, for individuals and groups alike. The cornerstone of the event is a Victorian Holiday Marketplace held in the 100,800 sq. ft. exhibit hall of the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
Here against a Victorian Holiday background, one will find 350 plus period clad vendors hawking everything from jewelry, crafts, gifts, toys, art, gourmet foods, holiday décor, and much much more. There is truly something for everyone on your holiday list, but the fun doesn’t stop there! Strolling Victorian Musicians, Tea Leaf Readers, Punch & Judy Shows, Shadow Box Displays, a Life-Sized Historic Santa through the Ages Exhibit, and a real live Santa, each lend their own charm to the show. Adding to the experience are the elaborate Festival displays of Trees, Tables, Wreaths, Worlds, and Stockings. All displays are available for purchase at silent auction with 100% of the funds going to the sponsoring non-profit.
Off-site offerings include Victorian Holiday Teas, Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery Dinners, Historical Tours and the opening of Holiday Shows at award winning local theaters.
Back by popular demand is the “The Victorian Snow Globe Challenge” with a chance to win 100 presents and “Scrooge’s Hunt for the Missing Presents” which will both be held on the show floor for any one that chooses to participate.
No matter your taste or budget, this event offers something for everyone. Whether it’s a day’s excursion or a long weekend getaway, the Dickens Christmas Show & Festivals is the perfect way to kick off your Holiday Season… Dickens Style!
Make plans to join the many that come year after year!”
