Dickens Fair Photowalk, Photo Contest and Scavenger Hunt

We've done this every year, and it's a hoot!

Details here: http://dickensfair.com/general

This year, we are adding a photo contest as well. After the event upload your photos to this page and Colin Smith of photoshopcafe.com will be our prestigious judge. He'll choose two photos to win DVDs from photoshopcafe.com!

I started dressing up for it last year, but you don't have to! If you've never been to this event, you're missing out! It's such fun.

Buy tickets ($25) here: http://dickensfair.com/tickets

Still putting the details together for this event, but want to lock in the date.

120,000 square feet to explore. Food, gifts, shops galore, shows and theatre events, everyone talking in cockney accents and so much more!

    I'd be curious about how many others showed up but couldn't recognize anyone. My guess is, it could be quite a few. Clearly, a more definitive meeting place and a way to identify the group would make a difference.

      Agreed. We usually meet at a coffee shop but I am not familiar with the area so I didn't plan that. Next time, we will do better!

    Sorry Sally I wasn't able to find and meet up with anyone there. Looked outside the entrance but couldn't recognize anyone. Wonderful event and was my first time at Cow Palace. Thanks for setting up the event. Hope I can find the group next time though.

    I got there at 10:00 and waited out front until 10:15, without recognizing anyone. So I went inside. Maybe the Christmas tree would be a better place to meet; and a Meetup sign might help, also. It was a great event though.

      I just missed seeing you. I arrived at 10:15. Thanks for coming and sorry I missed meeting up with you.

      I only saw one other member other than you.

      December 8, 2013

  • Sally C.

    I'll meet you all outside the event at 10!

      I trust you found the ATM in the entrance to the Faire.

    • Sally C.

      Yeah but I needed cash for parking. Lesson learned.

    Wonderful experience, as always. My issue continues to be the number of people who say they're coming & don't bother to show up. I saw one member. One.

    Well, I over-slept! I will have to blame the Aperture Academy for throwing a good party last night---

    I worked for years for the parents of the people putting on the Dicken's Faire....I was really hoping to make it. I knew Kevin Patterson when he was a little kid running around the Renaissance Faire, and the Dickens Faire. I helped build and run the first one next to Ghiradelli square, and then on Army Street in an old Navy warehouse. You all have fun, I'll look forward to another meet-up and meeting you all
