THANKS TO ALL FOR AN INCREDIBLE DICKENS 2017! MAKE YOUR PLANS NOW FOR THE 45TH ANNUAL DICKENS ON THE STRAND, HELD NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 2, 2018.

With a nod to the ghost of Dickens past and an eye towards the future, Galveston’s world famous Victorian holiday festival returns to Galveston Island November 30 – December 2, 2018. The annual holiday street festival, based on 19th-century Victorian London, features parades, non-stop entertainment on six stages, strolling carolers, roving musicians, bagpipers, jugglers and a host of other entertainers. Costumed vendors peddle their wares from street stalls and rolling carts laden with holiday food and drink, Victorian-inspired crafts, clothing, jewelry, holiday decorations and gift items.
