Dickens of a Christmas 2016

Mon, Dec 12, 2016 10:00 am

Join us for the largest outdoor Christmas festival in Middle Tennessee! Step back in time with the Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County when Dickens of a Christmas returns to Franklin’s Main Street December 10-11, 2016.

The 32nd annual free street festival will recreate the time of Charles Dickens using historic downtown Franklin’s Victorian architecture as the backdrop. Some 200 musicians, dancers and characters will fill the streets, including several from Charles Dickens’s stories. Expect to see and interact with the nefarious Fagin from Oliver Twist; Jacob Marley, Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim Cratchit with his parents from A Christmas Carol; and of course, a Victorian Father and Mother Christmas with treats for childre.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
-Favorite Victorian-era activities will return, including sugar plums and roasted chestnuts being sold on the street. Other food vendors will offer heartier old English fare.
-A variety of musical and dance performances will take place both on the street and on the stage at City Hall.
-Horse-drawn carriage rides, a petting zoo for children, live artisan demonstrations, and more than 60 vendors offering holiday arts and crafts will line Main Street from Second to Fifth Avenues.
-Each day will conclude with a town sing of classic Christmas carols.
