The 35th Annual Dickens Christmas Show and Festivals is a unique, national award winning event comprised of a multitude of shopping and entertainment options for individuals and groups alike. The cornerstone of the event is a Victorian Holiday Market held in the 100,000 sq. ft. exhibit hall of the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
Here against a Victorian Holiday Background, one will find hundreds of period clad vendors hawking everything from jewelry, gifts, toys, arts and crafts, gourmet foods, holiday décor and much more. There is probably truly something for everyone on your holiday list but the fun doesn't stop there. Strolling Victorian Musicians, Tea Leaf Readers, Punch and Judy Shows, Shadow Box Displays, a Life Sized Historic Santa through the Ages Exhibit and a real live Santa each lend their own charm to the show.
Off-site offerings include Victorian holiday Teas, Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery Dinners, Historical Tours and the opening of Holiday Shows at award winning local theaters.No matter what your taste or budget, this event offers something for everyone. Whether it's a day's excursion or a long weekend getaway, the Dickens Christmas Show and Festivals is the perfect way to kick off your Holiday Season…Dickens Style!
I have thoroughly enjoyed doing the DICKENS OF A CHRISTMAS SHOW!
I have been a vendor now, for 15 yrs. I look forward to it every year and can't wait to see what they have new. It is one of the Best Shows I do an I have never gotten tired of it. It has a really good variety an never boring. It's the perfect show for a group to come or just a special treat for yourself to enjoy of the season.

We really enjoyed the Dickens Christmas Show. The promoter was very friendly and helpful. The people attending the show are good buyers and quite nice too. The decor of the show and the whole Christmas spirit made it very enjoyable and we are always so happy to return year after year. Thank you for a great show!

My business has participated in the Dickens Christmas Show for the last 25 years. I love the Victorian feel of the show, the decorations and the high volume of customers that travel from near and far to make this show a yearly tradition in kicking off their holiday shopping season. It's a must see and as a vendor, a must do!

The Dickens Christmas Show is the only show we do where true Christmas Spirit meets Christmas Past. The two combine and give vendors and shoppers alike a totally unique Christmas shopping experience. Imaginative outfits lift spirits and one of a kind products makes this offline shopping venue a must do event. this event is well organized and the staff is lovely.

As experienced crafter of 32 years, we look for first class shows. The Dickens Christmas Show has proven each year to be a first class show and has consistently exceeds our expectations. Each year we look forward to seeing our repeat customers and new ones. We have an amazing show each year due to the hard work Dickens does with Facebook, advertising, community efforts and hard work. We are always excited to be there in our costumes.
