The Greater Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council, in conjunction with the Inc. Village of Port Jefferson, will host the 23rd Annual Charles Dickens Festival on from December 1st & 2nd 2018, throughout the Village of Port Jefferson. The Village of Port Jefferson will magically transform into the Dickensian era with streets filled with roaming characters such as Father Christmas, Dickens Mayor, Scrooge, the Town Crier and the beloved chimney sweeps. The events are open to the public and most attractions are free of charge, so everyone – from the very young to the young at heart can join in the fun. The festivities will feature many returning favorites; ice skating at the Village Center, acappella performance by choirs and harmony groups, Nutcracker performances, magic shows by The Great Wizard of the North, and many fine musical performances by area musicians.
