High hopes for a safe and celebratory return of The Great Dickens Christmas Fair in 2021!

While the 2021 Great Dickens Christmas Fair is still months away, we must make plans now if we are to open our elaborate recreation of Dickens’ London this November. Despite the troubling news and daily fluctuations in California’s fight against COVID-19, we remain optimistic that by the Fall, we can present a safe environment for our beloved event.

The health and safety of our participants and guests is our first priority. Based on the latest medical advice, state, CDC, and participant feedback, We will be requiring proof of vaccination for all guests ages 12 and up and children ages 2 through 11 will be required to wear a mask while attending The Great Dickens Christmas Fair in the Exhibition Halls of the historic Cow Palace in Daly City.
