Haunting on DoG Street

October 15-31, 2017

Join us from October 15 through October 31 as we celebrate the Halloween season with new evening programs, ghost tours, spooky carriage rides, museum talks, and special events.

The Haunting on DoG Street programing is presented in partnership with Mars Wrigley Confectionery and AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate.


Special Programs

Jack of the Lanterns

In the eighteenth century, the haunted tale of Jack of the Lanterns (and the origin of our Jack O’ Lantern) brought a tingle to the spines of young and old alike. This Halloween, the glow of over two-hundred-fifty jack-o-lanterns on Historic Area porches and steps along Duke of Gloucester Street will feed the imagination.


Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg


Face Your Fears

Open October 1-31, 2017

Face Your Fears

Many people have a fear of something. Even George Washington! (We can’t reveal it here, you will have to come and find out). During the month of October, visit the museums and, if you are not triskaidekaphobic, discover 13 common and not so common phobias represented by objects rarely exhibited. Throughout the museums you will encounter specially draped cases that dare you to lift the cover and face what lies inside. Will it be your fear?

Please call 844-871-0416 for questions.
