Historic Downtown Cambridge
Celebrating our 18th Season! Take a trip back in time and experience old world England in historic downtown Cambridge, Ohio when it’s charmingly transformed into a Dickens Victorian Village each holiday season. From November 1 through January 1 each year, visitors and residents alike are invited to stroll amidst 92 scenes of 168 lifelike characters representing classic scenes from the Victorian era. This innovative public art exhibition is enjoyed by families, couples and groups alike – an experience that engages the senses as you explore the charming streetscape, striking historic architecture and eclectic shops and eateries of Cambridge. The Dickens scenes are stationed along Wheeling Avenue at each antique lamppost and some benches between 6th and 11th Streets and in windows. Wheeling Avenue is also the historic National Road/Route 40 and features an outstanding streetscape of original buildings from the 1800s. The Dickens Victorian Village scenes are comprised of life sized and hand-made characters wearing vintage clothing. The faces for each character are individually sculpted and painted by local artists. The displays include engaging depictions of classic Dickens-era scenes and figures such as Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, the town crier, groups of carolers, a bucket brigade, lamplighters, school children, street peddlers and Father Christmas, all posed in active scenes that appear frozen in time.
