Victorian All Hallows Eve

October 31, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm MDT

$8 – $12.50

Experience a Victorian Halloween in our Victorian mansion. Learn, eat and drink your way through a night of 1800s’ superstitions and celebrations about all things dead or undead. Costumes strongly encouraged.

Victorians were fascinated with “proper” approaches to mortality, the occult, spirituality, mourning and funerals. Their rituals and events were as detailed and expensive as the lace on Queen Victoria’s dresses! Led by the Queen herself, England embraced the idea of a “good death,” an elaborate and strict set of Victorian practices requiring painstaking detail and a small fortune. For the Victorians, failing to properly mourn on a grand scale was considered a societal and moral failure. Join us as we “unearth” this intricate and shocking history.
