The days are long, the weather is warm (well mostly) and our friends are dressing funny in Sacramento. You know what that means… It’s time to start thinking about Dickens Fair!

Well, some of us have already been thinking about it and are making plans… mwahaha…

If you have ideas for new shows or groups for the fair this year, now is the time! Please email your proposal to me *this week* at Please do not send any new environmental area requests, we have no more room this year.

Please keep the following in mind if you are proposing a show:

  • No fire performances
  • No prerecorded music/audio, video/animation
  • Costumes, language, sets and props must be appropriate for mid-19th century London (not Renaissance)
  • No modern performance styles (no aerial silks, etc.) or obvious modern (vs. Victorian) technology
  • Able to fit on available stage sizes

Please also consult all of the information on the Dickens Fair performer’s page before proposing a show or group.
