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. These tours are presented by Wake Forest Downtown (WFD), Inc., in partnership with Firebox Theatre Company (FTC).

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


Tickets are sold out for the 2023 season of Spirits of Wake Forest!
