Dickens Holiday

The month wraps up with a Christmastime favorite, A Dickens Holiday, held from 1-9 p.m. at the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County. Join us Downtown on Friday, November 27th for an old-fashioned Christmas celebration. The day features Scrooge, Marley, and other characters from “A Christmas Carol” as well as depictions of actual people who lived during Victorian times. The afternoon also includes carriage rides, Father Christmas photos, holiday music, and carolers. Stick around for the candlelight procession at 5:30 p.m. that will stretch from the Arts Council to the Market House, followed by fireworks. “Annie’s Alehouse,” a food court and performance area behind the Arts Council building that is modeled on the old Victorian pubs, will be open following the fireworks during “Dickens After Dark.”
