We have reimagined the All Hallows Eve experience and transitioned many of the event’s activities outdoors to help preserve and protect our historic buildings and artifacts. Stops inside our smaller capacity buildings will no longer be available including the Martin Mitchell Mansion. The event will continue to provide indoor performances in our historic buildings that have larger capacities including Century Memorial Chapel, the Carriage House, and the Meeting House. All Hallows Eve was originally conceptualized and created in 2004, and in its first year, the event welcomed 2,000 visitors. Since that time, All Hallows Eve has seen significant growth and has become a Halloween tradition for many local families. In 2022, the event welcomed over 5,500 visitors and over 125 volunteers. We thank the community for their support and are excited to share the new immersive outdoor experience with you. For a full list of activities, please visit NaperSettlement.org/AllHallowsEve.
All Hallows Eve is recommended for families with children 16 and under. Each experience has a “scare factor” recommendation that can be viewed near the activity’s entrance and inside the All Hallows Eve event guide available at the event’s entrance.
For adults 21+, please visit us the following weekend, October 21-22 for Howlin’ at the Moon.
No Halloween costumes or masks are permitted at All Hallows Eve for the safety of our visitors and staff.
