Halloween Legends and Lore at Old World Wisconsin

Visit Website Add to My Favorites

Eerie tales lurk in the dark, as legends and lore come to life in the woods of Wisconsin. Troves of supernatural tales brought to the state over the generations come to life as you explore the Crossroads Village after dark at this always spooky, sometimes scary, family-friendly Halloween event at Old World Wisconsin.

Tonight the veil is thin between this world and the next. Troves of supernatural tales brought to Wisconsin over the generations come to life as you venture into the dark of the woods, encounter traveling performers around their fire, hear eerie tales performed by lantern light, and attempt a haunted maze under the light of the moon.

Don’t Miss: Mr. Smith’s Emporium of Oddities! The Traveling Fates, The Tale of St. Dunstan and the Devil! The Hodag Hay Maze for Little Goblins, or the Hern the Hunter Maze for those made of stronger stuff!

This event is hosted in collaboration with Kettle Moraine School for Arts and Performance.
