Halloween Legends and Lore
October 14 @ 5:00 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 22, 2022
Halloween Legends and Lore returns to Old World Wisconsin for two weekends! We are huge fans of Old World Wisconsin and love visiting in different seasons for totally different experiences. The summer experience is vastly different from the fall Halloween Legends and Lore experience. That is what makes a visit to Old World Wisconsin so amazing for the family – always a new and different experience and there’s something for everyone to learn and be in awe of on site.
Fri Oct 14 – Sat Oct 15
Fri Oct 21 – Sat Oct 22
5:30 – 9:30 PM
Halloween Legends and Lore Details
Eerie tales lurk in the dark, as legends and lore come to life in the woods. The veil is thin between this world and the next. What is real, and what is a legend?
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. 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 the Nachtkrap, the Hodag Hay Maze for Little Goblins, or the Hern the Hunter maze for those made of stronger stuff! Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
