The village of Port Jefferson is located on the North Shore of Long Island, 60 miles east of New York City. The village's commerce is divided into two centers that lie one mile apart along Main Street and at differing elevations.

Port Jefferson has been home to the annual Port Jefferson Village Dickens Festival every year since 1996. The festival celebrates the works and times of English novelist Charles Dickens. It takes place during a weekend early in December and typically includes many events and occurrences, such as the regular sighting of people who dress in 19th century clothing, house tours, the reading of winter-related poetry, caroling, and booths set up by local businesses.
