Dickens on the Boulevard is a Victorian-themed Christmas festival in historic downtown Claremore, Oklahoma. The festival, held annually on the weekend before Thanksgiving, is now in its 22nd year in Claremore. Beginning at 6 p.m. each evening, visitors to Dickens on the Boulevard will enjoy live stage entertainment, food, pictures with Santa and more. A Victorian street dance will be held both nights of the event and a territorial marshals reenactment will entertain crowds with plenty of Western-themed action. Living window displays will pepper the downtown area while an artisan village will feature living history demonstrations. Visitors will be able to learn about life in the Victorian era while re-enactors portraying blacksmiths, spinners, wood carvers, potters and more answer questions from the crowd and sell their wares.
Browse through the festive shops and decorated boutiques of downtown Claremore or enjoy a Christmas-themed wagon ride through the town. A living nativity, a costume contest and a saloon featuring sarsaparilla and water will all be available. Come and enjoy such delicious fare from chuckwagons as well as hot dogs and kettle corn.
