Enjoy a traditional 19th Century Halloween celebration with All Hallows’ Eve at Ohio Village. These family-friendly haunted events take place on Saturdays, October 2, 9, 16, 23 & 30, 2021 from 5:30–9:30 p.m.
Guests can walk the lit pumpkin path to the amphitheater for the retelling of Washington Irving’s famous story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, hear about All Hallows’ Eve traditions from Ohio Village characters, experience one-on-one fortune telling, take part in a 19th century masquerade party and more.
But beware… the Headless Horseman will visit during a bonfire reading of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow each night. The event is family-friendly, but young children may find The Legend of Sleepy Hollow around the bonfire a little frightening, so it may be best to avoid that part of the event.

If this is your first time visiting All Hallows Eve, here are some things to remember. The event is rain or shine, but there are lots of buildings to duck into and explore, so don’t let a little rain cancel your visit. It gets dark early and the village is dimly lit (in accordance to the time period), so we recommend you arrive before dark to get your bearings and check out the layout before you arrive. Paths are gravel, grass, and wooden, so wear appropriate footwear.
