Looks like this event has already taken place.

Our Dickens Characters are on display beginning Thanksgiving Day through New Year's Day. Each year more characters will be added to our Dickens Experience.

Olde England comes alive in Historic Downtown Antioch, IL with life-like figures representing scenes from the Dickens Era. Experience this Volunteer Public Art Exhibit. All Dicken's Characters are made from the ground up by Dicken's Volunteers.

2023: Dickens Holiday Village will be indoors at Kringle's Christmas Village (#510 Orchard Street) in Downtown Antioch beginning daily Thanksgiving-New Year's Day (indoors 10 a.m.-8 p.m.) for you to enjoy. Each character exhibit has a plaque which describes the scene you are seeing and how life was in the Dicken's Era. Visit all the Dickens Scenes, both indoors and out! (Tours available throughout the year with advance registration.)
