Legends and Lore at Old World Wisconsin | October 2021

(Eagle, WI): Legends and Lore is coming up this fall at Old World Wisconsin!

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.
