Dickens in Dundee

Dickens in Dundee was formed in 1988. It began as a small community gathering, with caroling and the search for Tiny Tim’s crutch in local stores. With the support of local businesses, this event has grown significantly and attracts people from all over the Dundee area. This year’s Dickens in Dundee, presented by River Street Tavern, will take place in East Dundee on Friday, November 30th, with a parade from West to East Dundee to follow at 10am on Saturday, December 1st. All of the events below take place near the East Dundee Depot, located at 319 N River Street.

Tree Lighting

The holiday festival kicks off with a community tree lighting at 5:45pm. The kickoff will feature a performance by the Dundee Chamber Choir and an appearance from Santa!
