The Dickens Fair is one of Victoria’s oldest and best-loved Holiday Craft Fairs. Our juried local artisans offer a great variety of quality and affordable products that will appeal to everyone.

Hosted by the James Bay Market Society, the Dickens Fair has something for everyone. From treasures to toys, you will find everything from great homemade foods to uniquely crafted gifts. This is an amazing opportunity to meet and support your local Vancouver Island Artisans, hear their stories and learn first hand how they make, bake and craft their wares.

The much-loved Dickens Fair is getting ready to “Deck the Halls” and we’d love to have you join us. With over 70 vendors there will be something for everyone.

Along with our returning vendors, you will recognize your favorite James Bay Community Market vendors. There will also be many new vendors who will be showcasing their talents. The variety of new products, the quality of workmanship, and the care that goes into their creations are sure to impress the most discerning of shoppers.

The Dickens Café will be serving up muffins, baked snacks, lunch items made from locally sourced products and even vegetarian options. There will also be tea and coffee served all day to help take the chill off.

Bring the whole family! The kids will have fun in the children’s area where they can create a one-of-a-kind treasure of their own. We have Marilyn the “Chicken Lady” who will be introducing us to her incredible feathered friends that is always a big hit with kids of all ages.

Come in out of the cold and visit the Dickens Fair, a wonderful way to spend the day with family and friends.

There is an ATM on site for your shopping convenience.
