When is Dickens?

Friday, December 6th, 2019 from 5 pm to 9:30 pm. Tree Lighting is at 7 pm.

What is Dickens? 

Kick off the season with Dickens, a FREE annual event nestled in the heart of the Historic Downtown Plano Arts District. We're bringing back all the favorites for this annual celebration, including free s'mores, a real snow slide, and ice wars, and adding a Victorian twist, complete with Scrooge, Victorian music and entertainment and free photos with a Victorian Santa. We'll also have carolers from Plano Independent School District, a Trimmed Tree Trail, multiple food and beverage options and more than 50 artists. And don't miss the Tree Lighting at 7 pm! 

This is a family-friendly event. Leashed dogs are welcome.
