Charles Dickens Festival
Port Jefferson is a quaint, nautical village with tree lined streets and downtown shopping. Many will gather for the annual Dickens Festival. The village magically transforms into the Dickensian era with streets filled with roaming characters such as Father Christmas, Dickens Mayor, Scrooge, the Town Crier and the beloved chimney sweeps. Open to the public and with most attractions free of charge, this is the must-attend event of the season. Ice skate in the village, listen to carolers singing acapella and enjoy Nutcracker performances and magic shows.
