Port Jefferson Village Annual Charles Dickens Festival

Sat Dec 3, 2022
10:00am to 7:00pm ET
All ages
Free (fee to ice skate)

The Village of Port Jefferson magically transforms into the Dickens era with streets filled with roaming characters such as Father Christmas, Dickens Mayor, Scrooge, the town crier, and the beloved chimney sweeps.

The events are open to the public and most attractions are free of charge, so everyone – from the very young to the young at heart can join in the fun. The festivities will feature many returning favorites; ice skating at the Village Center, a cappella performance by choirs and harmony groups, Nutcracker performances, magic shows and many fine musical performances by area musicians.
