- Witches' Night Out 2014
Back by popular demand, we will be holding our Witches' Night Out event for two weekends again this year. Mark your calendar for October 10-11 and 24-25 for a night out of shopping, dancing, cackling and fun with all your best sister witches. Parking your broom can be hectic this time of year. Due to the huge increase of traffic for Witches Night Out and Wee Witches Weekend, we must hire professional parking attendants. There will be a $5 per car parking fee beginning at 10 am on October 10th, 11th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 24th and 25th. Receive valuable Village coupons when you park. An alternative option to parking would be to take the train. There's a TRAX stop across the street from Gardner Village- the‘Historic Gardner’ stop.
- Wee Witches Weekend - NEW EVENT!
October 16-18 is a three-day fun festival for the little ones! Work out wiggles at the Wee Witches Playground, enjoy the scavenger hunt, food, music, petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, witchy hair & nails and activities in many of our shops. You may even spot a witch or two. The event will be held Thursday from 10am to 8pm and Friday and Saturday 10am to 9pm.

- Witch Scavenger Hunt and Witch Displays
A tradition for families at Gardner Village is the Witch Scavenger Hunt. Once you find all the witches, kids 12 and under can take their completed form to the Naborhood Bakery to receive a delicious chocolate chip cookie for only 35¢ (reg. price 95¢). Looking for a group activity? Spend an evening doing the hunt then step inside one of our eateries for a sweet treat to top off your activity. (The caramel apples are delicious at Chocolate Covered Wagon.) Print your Witch Scavenger Hunt forms on our website beginning September 12, 2014.
