Tidewater Trader November 24, 2021 Page B12 Chestertown’s Annual Dickens Festival Promises Holiday Fun with a British Accent Main Street Chester- town’s fourth annual Dickens of a Christmas weekend, December 3 rd through 5 th in the historic downtown district, promises non- stop entertainment, authentic British foods, hand-crafted gifts, and a Victorian streetscape to transport visitors back to 1840’s London. The weekend kicks off December 3 rd at 5pm with a fabulous First Friday celebration. Chestertown’s shops and businesses will stay open late to welcome visitors. Horse-drawn carriages will carry guests past 18 th and 19 th century homes, and fire pits will help keep everyone warm for a night of enter- tainment that includes North America’s Celtic Band the American Rogues, beer and mulled wine, and food from local vendors. The festivities continue on Saturday morning at 10am with the “London Row” artisans tent with a wide variety of hand-crafted seasonal and Victorian themed gifts and treats. Food vendors will offer traditional and seasonal fare, from Fish & Chips and Ham & Chutney sandwiches to oysters. In addition to festival headline act The American Rogues, the Music Stage will feature regional acts. Street per- formers include the Wheelmen Antique Bicycle Club, Phydeaux’s Flying Fleas, Big Whimsy Stilt Walkers, and Dickens inspired actors. Rumor has it that Queen Victoria herself will make an appearance. Kids will delight at the pony rides and petting zoo, and be able to talk to Santa. Sunday kicks off bright and early with the “Run/Walk Like the Dickens” 5K race. Costumes are encouraged!
