Dickens On Centre

Travel back in time during the fourth annual Dickens on Centre festival in Historic Downtown Fernandina December 7-9. This Victorian-inspired holiday festival is as fun as the dickens for the entire family. Enjoy costumed characters, themed entertainment and performances, visits from Saint Nick, and a variety of vendors selling seasonal gifts and wares. Inspired by Charles Dickens' novella A Christmas Carol, Dickens on Centre transforms downtown Fernandina into a classic English village, sure to enliven your Christmas spirit. Think chestnuts roasting, carolers strolling, and readings of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.'  A new feature at this year's festival is "Dickens after Dark", a spirited affair for adults 21 and over.  www.dickensoncentre.com.
