At 7pm the witching hour begins as we welcome guests to enter our new Village of the Damned. Your admission provides you access to unique Halloween entertainment with our comedy-horror shows created by the cast of our very own professional Sterling Renaissance Festival actors. Enter at your own risk as you will be lured by demons, pursued by zombies, and sought by vampires whom wish to feast on your blood. Along your travels you will interact with gruesome village inhabitants and be subjected to mischief and evil. Stops along the way will often provide for misguided security while partaking in the comedy-horror of our live stage shows. Don’t let your guard down as you proceed through this lost village of the damned, because danger looms at every turn.

You will also have opportunity to foresee your destiny through the eyes of a gypsy or desperately seek to find your way out of the Hospital of Horror maze, at an additional cost of $5. What is for certain is that you will not leave the same as you came in…or perhaps not at all! You have been forewarned!

Recommended for ages 10 and up. Come hungry to enjoy some brain food at the Fiery Pits of Hell’s Kitchen concession stand.

Come explore the fields, meadows and wetlands for birds, butterflies and dragonflies. All of these diverse creatures can fly but each does it in its own unique way. We will hike the Meadow Trail and visit Dragonfly Pond in search of our summer winged wildlife.
