Witches Night Out - Part One: THIS Friday and Saturday!



Dress in your wackiest witchy attire and grab your sister witches for part one of the epic event of the year! The first weekend of Witches Night Out kicks off this Friday, October 10th from 6-10pm and then again Saturday, October 11th 6-10pm.

Enter to win prizes, treat yourself to dinner, and enjoy special discounts and bewitching activities in each of the shops. You can have your eyes b'dazzled at Be-witched Bootique, your photo at Camera Shy Photography and cackle like a witch by Aunt Elsie's.  Join your fellow sister witches on the stage at 8pm for the Witch Parade, and stick around until 10pm for the finale dance at the main stage with all the witches.

Admission is free, but there is a $5 per car parking fee because we hire a professional parking crew to help manage our parking lots. You'll receive valuable coupons when you pay to park. You can also take TRAX, which drops you off right across the street.

Need a costume? Some of our shops have witchy attire, hats and jewelry that you can pick up right here at Gardner Village!
