Halloween Quote of the Moment, July 25:
“Drink deeply from the cup of fear.
-Peter Lorre

Our massive Halloween Market / Steampunk Festival / Oddities Expo is a vast rumbustification of all manner of strange, unusual, peculiar, eccentric, spooky, magical, magickal, unorthodox, unexpected, pleasant, wondrous, inspired, creative, splendid wares, proffered by small businesses, artists, creators, and makers of a Halloween, Steampunk, Fantasy, or Otherwise Odd variety.

It’s also the proud home of a number of incredible performances by performers whose Autumnal charms will entrance you. Or just make you dance, whichever. Do check out our features – we pride ourselves on being an extravaganza beyond your wildest Halloween dreams!

Did we mention that you can spend the weekend at the Resort itself? Experience a traditional Catskills Resort during the spookiest time of the year in the gloriously haunted upstate New York. You can! If you’d like to stay at the Resort, the whole weekend is available! (While rooms last.)
