This Victorian-era fair is like Comic-Con for Dickens-lovers. Performers, vendors and attendees alike adopt period garb to promenade through elaborate London sets. The makeshift town includes a tea parlour, five pubs (serving Old World ales, of course), seven theaters, restaurants and throwback shops for corsetry, hats, soaps and jewelry. Cow Palace Exhibition Halls, 2600 Geneva Ave between Rio Verde and Santos Sts (800-510-1558, dickensfair.com). Sat–Sun 10am–7pm. Nov 19–Dec 18. $10–$30.
