A Dickens Holiday

The Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County
Friday, November 24 | All Day
Downtown Fayetteville map

On Friday, Nov. 24, 2017, Historic Downtown Fayetteville will again be transformed into a unique and wonderful experience. So roll back the clock with us ­for A Dickens Holiday from 1 to 9 p.m.!

Horse-drawn carriages roll down Hay Street carrying shoppers the old-fashioned way, past merchants’ windows adorned with beautiful Victorian holiday decorations, past artisans and vendors of all sorts of delightful treats. Joyful children pose with Father Christmas for memory-laden pictures.  The smells of cider and gingerbread permeate the chilly air. And there is Ebenezer Scrooge himself, pursued by the ghost of Jacob Marley.

As darkness approaches and the clock reaches 5 p.m., townspeople gather in front of the Arts Council for the candlelight procession to the Market House, followed by fireworks.
