Community Event, Craft Show, For the Family, Holiday
The Dickens Christmas Show & Festivals features a multitude of shopping and entertainment options. The cornerstone of the event is a Victorian Holiday Marketplace held in the 100,000 sq. ft. exhibit hall of the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. Here, against a Victorian holiday background, visitors find hundreds of period-clad vendors hawking everything from jewelry, gifts, toys, arts & crafts and gourmet food, to holiday décor and more. 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 lend charm to the show. There are elaborate displays of trees, tables and wreaths, and the Festival of Worlds, which enhance the experience. All displays are available for purchase at silent auction. 100% of the proceeds go to the sponsoring non-profit organization.
