Join the spirits of Rugby past at Historic Rugby's 18th Annual Halloween Ghostly Gathering on Saturday, Oct. 20 and again on Saturday, Oct. 27. Activities begin promptly at 6 p.m. ET (5 p.m. CT) and end around 10 p.m. Guests are welcome to come in costume.
Ghostly Gathering participants will enjoy a homemade chili and cornbread dinner with slaw and fruit crunch at the Community Building followed by storytelling in the new Rebecca Johnson Theatre. Then guests will tour several candle and oil lamp lit historic buildings. Ghostly Gathering will end with hot cider and more ghostly stories around the Druid's Bonfire at the old Tabard Inn site, weather allowing, or inside if raining.
Featured storytellers this year are Jim Buck on Oct. 20 and Susan Ramsay on Oct. 27. Ghostly Gathering is supported in part by a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission Touring Arts program.
Event cost, including dinner, is $19 for adults, and $10 for students ages six through high school. The event is not suitable for children under six. Reservations should be made as soon as possible as seating is limited and the event is usually a sell out.
