The Riverside Dickens Festival is run by a non-profit that seeks to enhance a sense of community among California residents. The Group created a series of literary events that bring together people from all segments of society.

Come see as the Victorian Era comes back to life with hundreds of Festival Goers don authentic costumes and “relive” the good old days of Victorian England. The Festival includes performances at the Royal Victorian Tearoom and Music Hall, Meet Mr. Dickens, the Authors Salon and more.

Street performers like musicians, magicians, jugglers, stilt walkers, and puppeteers are set to entertain visitors. There is also a family friendly stage set in the time of Charles Dickens’ England.. There are a minimum of two performances of 20—25 minutes each day.

Tickets for All Dickens Festival Events are on sale now.
