Dickens in Dundee



Dickens in Dundee was formed in 1988. It began as a small community gathering, with caroling and the search for Tiny Tim’s crutch in local stores. With the support of local businesses, this event has grown significantly and attracts people from all over the Dundee area. This year’s Dickens in Dundee will take place in East Dundee on Friday, November 30th, with a parade to follow on Saturday, December 1st. Stay tuned for more details as the event approaches!
