All aboard! New this year, this AWESOME broomstick photo opp was added. Wouldn't it look great to bring the entire boo crew for a pic on this stick?

Meet the Withches

Scrapbookers, Gardner Village is a layout in the making. You never know when you'll happen upon a cackling crew, ready to take pics and play tricks. I love that I've documented the time my youngest met these crazy ladies. It's a moment that makes our family smile and will one day make her own wee witches laugh. There are happy stories waiting to be told around every turn at The Village.

Beyond being a photographer’s dream, Gardner Village is the place to play this Halloween. Of course, you’ll find the full WitchFest lineup (learn more here), but you’ll also find special activities at the shops that will make your visit all the more memorable.

Get your face painted and attend wizard school at Spoiled Rotten.

Enjoy Time Together

With or without a camera in tow, Gardner Village makes an awesome Halloween tradition and siteseeing destination. Of course, the shopping, dining, dancing, learning, and playing you’ll do here aren’t bad either. Come with your family, your friends, even your local youth group. You'll have a ball exploring it all!

Don't wait to take the plunge.

Come by before the witches hop their brooms and head south for the winter. After 45 days of celebrating everything witchy, we close at 5pm on Halloween so our shop owners can head home to spend some time with their families just in time for trick or treating. There are so many memories waiting to be made.
