are excited to announce select-day (theatre style) ticketing for the
first time in the history of our events. The Great Dickens
Christmas Fair is first and foremost, a theatrical production - we just
call it a Fair. In order to assure an enjoyable and comfortable

This means that a limited number of tickets will be sold for each
day and just like any other theatrical venue, patrons must choose their
date to attend. And some dates will sell out.

The Eventbrite system will make this very clear and simple. Details will be on the Tickets page of dickensfair.com beginning August 25th.

past costumers with a hefty discount of $7 off the new regular
adult price of $30. This has already been the price of the final
two weekends for the past two years. It will now be the retail
price for all Fair days. The discount will be good for the first
3 weekends only. This will also help balance attendance and
encourage availability of tickets on the final weekends. ...There
are always procrastinators.
we sell out the regular (full-day) tickets, guests will be encouraged
to come after 3PM for the "Twilight Tickets". ($18 for adults, $10
for children). Available at the box office only.
tickets will remain only $15 and will NOT be select-day. They
will be valid any day, just as in the past. We want to keep
participant tickets flexible, and an excellent value for you and your
