Celebrate Sveva Caetani’s favourite haunted holiday

The Caetani house on Pleasant Valley Road in Vernon hosts A Haunted Halloween

  • Oct. 20, 2017 4:30 a.m.

Keep the date open for a very special Halloween event at the Caetani Cultural Centre, which is also often referred to as Vernon’s Haunted House. Sveva Caetani loved Halloween, and this event will mark the end of SvevaFest and help us celebrate what would have been her 100th birthday.

Bring your whole family for an outdoor meal in our courtyard. A Spooky Soups dinner hosted by Basket Case Picnics, soup and a roll for $5.50, chili or mac and cheese. There will also be our famous popcorn, warm drinks and a full bar to order from.

Show off your creativity and enter our jack o’lantern carving contest. Drop off your entries the Friday before and we will line the driveway with the lit pumpkins so people can enjoy and judge during the event. There will be prizes from Purdy’s Chocolates with a $100 gift basket as the main prize. The second prize will be randomly drawn from all the entries. Caetani loved chocolate and was known for giving out nice chocolate on Halloween.

Enjoy lantern making with the Cedar Bridge School. Dare to take our outdoor Haunted Garden Walk on the grounds. Play some Halloween games. Make a yummy s’more by the campfire while you listen to ghost stories from a local actor and live music by Tanya Lipscomb and others by the fire.

Finish the night with a Family Monster Mash dance party inside the studio gallery and we welcome tweens and teens to have some fire time without the little goblins around.

Tickets available online and at the gate for $5 per person or $20 per family.

If you are interested in volunteering before for set up or on the eve of the event please email events@caetani.org.
