The Halloween-themed event will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 18 on the grounds of the fort, which was built in 1845 and is rumored to be haunted.

There will be more than 75 artists showcasing spooky, mystical, and horror-themed creations, as well as D3 Circus aerial performances, monster exhibits, a car show, guest appearances, food trucks, and more.
