Howlin' at the Moon on October 22 & 23

Get ready for a howlin' good time at Naper Settlement's all-new Halloween event for adults, werewolves, and other 21+ creatures on October 22 and October 23, 2021 from 5:00-10:00 p.m. 

Howlin' at the Moon is for adults twenty-one years of age and older only. No one under the age of twenty-one is permitted. IDs will be checked at the entrance.
