Haunted Mill and Monster's Ball
Join us this October as more than 14 artists stage a takeover of Maxon Mills!
From 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM, join us at the Wassaic Fire Company for a costume contest, games, and hayrides. Ages (pre-K to 6th grade).
Afterwards, from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, bring the family through the Kids’ Haunted Mill (K to 6th grade), a toned-down version of the horrors to come. On the deck of the mill, we'll have plenty of (free!) Halloween festivities, including hay rides, a costume contest, face painting, snacks, carnival activities, and more.
At 5:00 PM, we'll send the kids away and the ghosts will come out to play. Venture up the creaky stairs (if you dare) for seven flights of chilling frights in the Adults' Haunted Mill.
At 9:00 PM, things will migrate over to The (Jack-O) Lantern for the Monster's Ball (tickets must be purchased in advance for non-local residents). Shake off the cobwebs to Kaleta & Super Yamba Band, Taraka Larson of Prince Rama, and our devious DJ’s and calm your nerves with all manner of creepy cocktails and spooky spirits. If you have a costume, that is.
All ages before 5:00 PM
13+ after 5:00 PM
$20 (must register ahead of time)
$5 for Wassaic residents (zip code 12592)

Want to help out? We need people to work the check-in desk, count attendees, and (for intrepid souls) perform in blow-up suits in one of our exhibition spaces.
Check-in desk volunteers and attendee counters work a two- to three-hour shift and get free admission to the Monster’s Ball. Performers work a six-hour shift and get free admission to the Monster’s Ball for themselves and one guest.
