There was an admission price of $5 but kids 12 and under were admitted free. VIP tickets were also available for $25. All the profits went to the winter production of Pride and Prejudice, according to The Dallas Morning News.

The Samuell-Grand Amphitheater was transformed into an Old English market. Attendees could feast like a king or queen, shop different vendors and celebrate the holidays.

There were activities for everyone, from young kids to elders. Whether eating, drinking or playing games there was always something to do.

Participants could shop and even get their Santa photos there. Another thing they could do at the Winter Faire and Market was dress up as someone from the Elizabethan Era and enter their costume contest. There were even other costumed characters roaming around.
