Dickens on the Boulevard is a Victorian-themed holiday festival in historic downtown Claremore. Visitors to Dickens on the Boulevard will enjoy live stage entertainment, food, pictures with Santa and more. A Victorian street dance will be held both nights of the event and a Territorial Marshals re-enactment will entertain crowds with plenty of Western-themed action. Living window displays will pepper the downtown area, while an artisan village will feature living history demonstrations. Visitors will be able to learn about life in the Victorian era while re-enactors portraying blacksmiths, glass blowers, weavers, wood carvers, basket weavers, sculptors and more answer questions from the crowd and sell their wares. Browse through the festive shops and decorated boutiques of downtown Claremore or enjoy a Christmas- themed wagon ride through the town. A living nativity, costume contest and Victorian food court will all be available. Come and enjoy such delicious fare as stew, beans, cornbread and cobbler. Dickens on the Boulevard will also feature the annual "Tales from the Top" tours. Witness as the upper floors of Claremore's historic landmarks come alive as costumed performers portray characters from Claremore's past. Learn about the unique history of each building through tales told during the tour and then venture outside for live entertainment.
