The Annual Skaneatles Dickens Festival, in all its Victorian glory, is set to enchant visitors every weekend from Thanksgiving weekend to Christmas Eve.  This annual event is one of the best Victorian-themed holiday events in the entire Northeast.  It was a winner of the 2012 Festie Award for “Best New York State Festivals.”

Bring the family, bring your appetite, bring your sense of humor (you never know when you might run into old Mr. Scrooge “looking for a farthing”), and bring your camera.

This is an excellent month-long event in the adorable lakeside community of Skaneateles.


What:  20th Annual Dickens Christmas Festival in Skaneatles (Onondaga County)

When: Every Weekend from Thanksgiving (Nov. 29) through Christmas Eve.

Where: Throughout the village of Skaneateles

Hi folks, this is "Big Chuck" here. I love Upstate New York!
