The Fort will be transformed into a scary landmark on Saturday, October 26, 2019, from 7pm-11pm for an evening of Halloween costumes, food, and fun. Make the Fort your first stop of the night, or spend the evening with us.

Cash bar operated by Libacious Cocktail Catering with beer, wine, and cocktails. Free gourmet finger foods presented by some of the area’s best restaurants! (See the full list of participating vendors, restaurants, breweries, and distilleries below.)
