A Nightmare on Fruth St.
This October, join The Night Owl Podcast for an evening of storytelling and festivities on the haunted grounds of The Spider House Café. Dating back to the late 1800’s, this property was once the site of a dairy farm. Today the café is host to numerous sightings of spectres roaming its grounds. A woman in the window of the tattoo shop, footsteps walking on the creaky floor of the cafe, and a lady who likes to mess with women in the ladies room. This night will be filled with true life ghost stories, live music, ghost tours of the buildings and grounds, a Halloween costume contest, raffles, an da market of the macabre featuring tarot readers and booths selling oddities, obscurities, and all things ghoulish! So come get in the “spirit” of Halloween this October with your favorite spooky local podcast and maybe, just maybe, you’ll have a sighting of your very own!
All vendors and booths will charge separately for their services or products. Ticket to this event only gains you entry to all the aforementioned festivities and guarantees you a seat or standing room space in the Ballroom for our live ghost storytelling.
The Spider House Café and Ballroom bars will be open and selling regular menu items as well as a special drinks off our Night Owl Hidden Spirits Menu. The food trucks on The Spider House grounds will also be open for business but may close early or at their discretion.
