The Dickens Christmas Show & Festivals returns to the Myrtle Beach Convention Center

Each year the Myrtle Beach Convention Center is transported back in time as it transforms into a bustling Victorian holiday marketplace. The Dickens Christmas Show & Festivals, a unique national award-winning event, offers a multitude of shopping and entertainment options.

The cornerstone of the event is the marketplace, which takes over the 100,000-square-foot exhibit hall. Here shoppers will find vendors clad in period clothing. Goods for sale include jewelry, toys, gourmet foods, holiday decor, arts and crafts and much more. You can pick up unique gifts for everyone on your list.

The fun doesn’t stop at shopping! Be sure not to miss the beautiful decor with the festival’s displays of trees, tables and wreaths. For those who want even more of the experience, the festival also offers special events like Victorian Holiday Teas and Sherlock Holmes Murder Mystery Dinners.

Regardless of your taste or budget, the Dickens Christmas Show & Festivals is the perfect way to kick off your holiday season!
