Dickens of a Christmas Celebration - Wellsboro, PA

  • Product code: PGHQRB

Wellsboro’s Main Street and the surrounding side streets will be closed
to traffic and will become an early Victorian marketplace featuring all
types of delectable wares for eating and drinking, as well as delightful
gift items for wearing or enjoying.

Beginning at 9:00 a.m., the food and craft vendors, strolling
musicians and singers, dancers, and street corner thespians will spread
up and down Main Street, extending on to Waln and Crafton Street, and a
portion of Central Avenue. Performers and vendors will be appropriately
costumed and decorated to create a Victorian atmosphere that fits so
well with the Wellsboro Gas Lights. With the streets closed to traffic,
you have the freedom to stroll and enjoy the festivities.

Wellsboro Men’s and Women’s Choruses traditionally perform in front of
the Arcadia Theater, and you’re welcome to sing along. Several other
local musical groups typically offer strolling performances throughout
the day. Just stop where you happen to be and enjoy tidbits of drama or
musical performances.

Many of our local churches will host luncheons, concerts, tours or
special services throughout the day. Hamilton Gibson Productions usually
present “A Christmas Carol” at the Coolidge Theater & Warehouse
Theater several times, and the Hamilton Gibson Choirs will perform on
Friday evening. Tickets may be purchased at the door.

125 craft and food vendors line the streets dressed in Victorian garb
to present many unique gift-giving options which include hand-crafted
Christmas ornaments, wooden toys, jewelry, quilted items, furniture,
wrought iron, homemade cheese & meats, pet treats, heirloom Santas,
stuffed animals and dolls for the children on your list. In addition,
several indoor craft shows are held at the United Methodist Church, the
Wellsboro Active Living Center, and the Firemen’s Annex.

Numerous food vendors are always on hand to warm your tummies and
tickle your taste buds with such delectable delights as hot chocolate,
chili, hot dogs, homemade soups and chowders, bread pudding, homemade
cookies, pies, and candies, hot beef sandwiches, crab cakes, hot cider
and coffee, cheddar worsts, kettle corn, baked potatoes, apple
dumplings, and cinnamon buns…just to name a few
