Narberth Dickens Festival




The Narberth Dickens Festival is a free family event held from Noon to 4pm, Saturday December 11, in downtown Narberth. It includes a scavenger hunt where children race to find all the Dickens characters to win a prize, street musicians, Victorian carolers and performers, dance performances, puppet shows, horse and carriage rides, and much more. Period-appropriate vendors help set the tone, and the local establishments each offer their own version of a “hot toddy” to keep grown-ups warm. The scavenger hunts goes from 1pm to 3pm or while supplies last. This year also features several free performances, including A Muppet Christmas carol at the Marbertn Theater, puppet shows, Nutcracker dance excerpts, and more!
