Revels Live in Skaneateles

Buy Dickens Posters OnlineDancers, carolers, live music and special events flow in and around the weekend celebrations, making for wonderful family memories. A live brass band plays every Saturday on the village streets; a bagpiper or two may be found entertaining on Sundays; and local musical groups share their many talents in that heartwarming Dickens’ spirit.  Beware of mean old Scrooge roaming the streets…..but, he may have a nice surprise for you.

Father Christmas will be glad to listen to all the children to get their wish list for the big day.  Father Christmas will be on the porch of the Masonic Temple from 12:15-2 pm, and 3-4pm each Dickens day.  The Masonic Temple is located at 13 E. Genesee Street.

And don’t forget to visit the unique area shops and restaurants that will be open throughout the Dickens’ events. The shopping district includes Genesee, Jordan and Fennell Streets.  Enjoy a slower paced, more enjoyable atmosphere where shopping can still be fun. Our 70 plus shops and restaurants are the perfect addition to a holiday vacation.

If you want to be a true shopper and don’t want the hustle and bustle of a Dickens weekend be sure to come back to Skaneateles any weekday.  Our shop owners will welcome you with open arms and be able to give you individual attention.  December 10, 2013 we are having a special shopping day in Skaneateles called Shop, Sip and Stroll.  You will find specials and discounts in the stores, special free treats, and get a free drink coupon for one of our area restaurants.
