If you’re looking for a “hauntingly” good time this fall, then don’t miss the “Spirits of Wake Forest” ghost walk in historic downtown Wake Forest. Presented by Wake Forest Downtown (WFD), Inc., in partnership with Forest Moon Theater, these tours will be offered Thursday-Saturday evenings (September 30-October 30) at 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. 

Downtown Wake Forest’s buildings and sidewalks have seen well over 100 years of history, and they have some spooky stories to tell! Join WFD, Inc. and Forest Moon Theater's incredible cast of storytellers to learn about the tragic train wrecks, murderous mamas and restless spirits that make up just a small piece of downtown’s haunted history.


Tickets are sold out.
