SOLD OUT - Thanks to your amazing response, this event is sold out.

Experience the darker side of Old Fort Niagara's history during this seasonal fundraising tour! Guides, dressed in 18th century clothing, will take guests on a journey through the dark fort while telling stories from its haunted past. Heard about the “ghost in the well”? How about the “hobgoblin” or the “wall of fog”? The tours will fill in the details!

Small groups of 10 guests will depart every 20 minutes from the fort's Visitor Center. Please arrive 10 minutes before your timed tour and stay in your vehicle until it is time for your tour. A staff member will check your tickets before you enter the building.

This event is best suited for adults and children ages 10 and older. Visitors will be provided with lanterns and should wear comfortable walking shoes. Facial coverings are required and social distancing must be maintained.

Tickets are non refundable and the tours will happen regardless of weather conditions. Old Fort Niagara reserves the right to remove disruptive participants from the tour.
