All Hallows Eve
Enter the netherworld of Naper Settlement to experience over 20 sinister attractions, spooky vendors, and spine-chilling performances.
This two-night event transforms Naper Settlement into a site for the eerie and bizarre with many of the museum’s historic buildings carefully transformed into the backdrop for short, spine-chilling performances and interactive experiences. Attendees step into their favorite spooky stories, including Frankenstein’s Laboratory, Sweeney Todd, Little Red Riding Hood, and more. Inside the museum’s Martin Mitchell Mansion, visitors wait anxiously to step inside H. H. Holmes’ Murder Castle and meet America’s first serial killer from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. Throughout the night the lost souls of the dead will be roaming Naper Settlement's 13-acres and can be found inside the Zombie Maze, and even performing on the event's two stages.
Event is not recommended for children under 8 years old. Please see our Event Policies and FAQ sections below before purchasing or redeeming tickets.
