Dickens of a Christmas

Dickens of a Christmas logo

It's a victorian holiday extravaganza every December when Downtown Spartanburg hosts Dickens of a Christmas.

With carolers dressed in victorian garb, live festive Christmas music, living window displays, horse-drawn carriage rides, ice skating on Morgan Square, and of course the lighting of the Christmas tree at Denny's Plaza, you don't want to miss Spartanburg's signature yuletide celebration.

Dickens of a Christmas 2019, December 3, 6-9 p.m.!
