The Dickens Holiday Festival has become a major event in the community as it kicks off the season in grand style.
The Dickens Festival at All Souls Church in Braintree
196 Elm Street corner of Charles and Elm Streets
Saturday, November 17, 2012
from 10 AM to 3 PM
Celebrating Our 18th Year !
Due to popular demand, this year we welcome vendors of handcrafted items only for our Olde English Marketplace and the Dickens Victorian theme will be evident throughout the entire building. Scrooge, the Ghost of Jacob Marley and other characters from A Christmas Carol will visit your 'market stall'.
All sellers are encouraged to dress in period costume.
Costume ideas: a top hat or mop hat, white frilly blouse or shirt, colorful vest... you get the idea. Your costume need not be extravagant. However, pictures will be taken and recognition for the best vendor costume and market stall will be publicized. (Good exposure for your business!)
All tables (yours or ours) are to be 72"x 30" banquet size and the Olde English Marketplace will be located in our church sanctuary.
Set up will begin at 7 AM the day of the festival or the Friday night prior from 7 PM until 9 PM.
Handicap Accessible Restroom Available. Refreshments are available for purchase. There is no smoking allowed in the building.
Please respond by November 1, 2012. After that date, space will be extremely limited.
VENDOR APPLICATIONS and INFO available online
Viewing a sample of items for sale may be requested before accepting your vendor application. (Vendors who do not have handmade items to sell are encouraged to rent table space at our Annual Plant, Yard and Bake Sale held in the spring.)
