Chestertown’s first “Dickens of a Christmas” event

With “A Christmas Carol,”  Charles Dickens captured the Victorian revival of the holiday and helped establish our modern observance: family gatherings, seasonal food and drink, games, dancing, and festive generosity of spirit!

Now, you can recapture the fun and spirit of Dickens’ London as historic Chestertown, Maryland presents “A Dickens of a Christmas”,  December 1-3, 2017.

Our charming downtown district will offer Victorian-themed food and entertainment to get everyone into the holiday spirit.  Proceeds from many ticketed events will benefit the local food pantry.

On Friday evening, you can join an extra festive First Friday. Shops and galleries will offer complimentary snacks and beverages.

Saturday’s fun continues with nonstop music and performances from 10 am to 9 pm.

On Sunday morning, you can “Run Like the Dickens” in our 5k race through town and enter the kids in the “Dickens Dash” fun run.

Don’t be left out of the fun! Bring your friends and family.
