For over 25 years the Lake Stevens School District's Community Education program hosts this annual craft fair the first Saturday in December. The Dickens Fair is planned as a festive community holiday event that includes various children and youth performances throughout the day. Entry to the fair is a canned item or monetary donation for the Lake Stevens Food Bank. All proceeds from the craft rental space fee goes to support the district's annual volunteer celebration in the spring.
Vendors are accepted on a first come, first served, basis. All items presented by vendors must be hand made or hand crafted. If a vendor presents items for sale that are not hand crafted or home made they will be asked to remove the items or leave the premises.
