DICKENS ON THE STRAND RETURNS – DECEMBER 6-8!Brush off your bowlers and prepare your petticoats as Galveston Historical Foundation presents the 46th 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 and drink, Victorian-inspired crafts, clothing, jewelry, holiday decorations, and gift items.
The annual Victorian bed race is always a crowd favorite and pits 5-person teams against each other for a footrace down Galveston's historic streets.
Learn about the history of The Strand National Historic Landmark District and enjoy Saint Arnold Brewing Co.’s signature ales during this special tour.
