50th Dickens on the Strand

Brush off your bowlers and prepare your petticoats as Galveston Historical Foundation presents the 50th annual Dickens on the Strand. Held the first weekend in December, the annual festival is a holiday tradition with great family programming, live entertainment, special events, and more.

Dickens on the Strand, based on 19th-century Victorian London, features parades, non-stop entertainment on four stages, new additions like Tiny Tim’s Play Land, Shopkeeper Skills Village, and roaming characters throughout the festival. Costumed vendors peddle their wares from street stalls and rolling carts laden with holiday food & drink, Victorian-inspired crafts, clothing, jewelry, holiday decorations, and gift items.

Also: Celebrate these 50 years of Dickens on the Strand with the Rosenberg Library as they host the descendents of Charles Dickens in a series of events before the festival kick-off!
