With “A Christmas Carol,”  Charles Dickens captured the Victorian revival of the holiday and helped establish our modern observance: family gatherings, seasonal food and drink, games, dancing, and festive generosity of spirit! Now, you can recapture the fun and spirit of Dickens’ London as historic Chestertown, Maryland presents “A Dickens of a Christmas”,  December 1-3, 2017.

Our charming downtown district will offer Victorian-themed food and entertainment to get everyone into the holiday spirit.  Proceeds from many ticketed events will benefit the local food pantry.

On Friday evening, you can join an extra festive First Friday. Shops and galleries will offer complimentary snacks and beverages.

Saturday’s fun continues with nonstop music and performances from 11 am to 5 pm.

On Sunday morning, you can “Run Like the Dickens” in our 5k race through town and enter the kids in the “Dickens Dash” fun run.

The route will start at the intersection of High and Cross Streets, in the heart of the historic downtown district, and will include a small jaunt through a local cemetery!! Will YOU spot one of the Christmas ghosts on your journey? 

Don’t be left out of the fun! Bring your friends and family.

Plenty of parking available at Wilmer Park and the Kent County Courthouse!!
