Old World Wisconsin Halloween Legends & Lore
Halloween Dinner Theater: Dracula
"Dracula" by playwright Steven Dietz is rich with horror, suspense and seduction. Enjoy a unique and themed dinner at our 1890s Clausing Barn and then travel by lamplight across the grounds to our intimate 19th century theater where the legend of the Count will come to “life.” The production is based on the novel by Bram Stoker. Dinner and drama are approximately 2½ hours long and require reservations.
Halloween Legends and Lore:
Join us for an always spooky, sometimes scary, rain-or-shine event as we celebrate the immigrant legends we brought with us and the folklore we created here at home. Halloween Legends and Lore features the folk and fairytales of the Old World as well as Wisconsin ghost stories from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Explore fantastic mazes, both whimsical and eerie. Burn off energy while fleeing ghosts or dancing in the enchanted fairy circle. Solve strange riddles and puzzles, create and take home macabre artifacts, and encounter cackling witches, gloomy grave diggers, strange beasts, freaky fortune tellers and bizarre entities. Learn the terrifying origins of the Ridgeway Ghost, and witness ghostly tales come to life. Enjoy tasty and disturbing treats and drinks, available for purchase. The evening culminates with a wild bonfire finale.
