Happy Witch-o-Ween! WitchFest is officially in full swing, Sept. 17 – Oct. 31, 2022.


Of course, this highly anticipated Utah tradition would never have taken flight the way it did without our Gardner Village witches.They put the motion in this happy potion and bring so much energy and excitement to the celebration!

Just what is it about this cackling crew that makes them so special? Is it their imaginative attire?

Their silly shenanigans?

 Lucinda and Braziilla

Their quirky friends?

 Or pets? (Yes, it IS real!)


Perhaps it's their spirited (yet warm!) personalitiies.

Maybe it's all of the above and the way it comes together in hysterical harmony to keep WitchFest on point and a memorable experience for all ages! 


Keep those eyes of gnewt peeled and those cameras ready, you never know where you'll spot one of these crazy characters.

There are several ways to catch a Gardner Village witch in the act. Look for them at the following scheduled events:

  • Witches Night Out: Ain’t no party like a WitchFest party. Get your Girls Night on this Oct. 14-15 and Oct. 28-29 from 6-10 p.m.
  • Breakfast with a Witch: This memorable meal mayhem happens at the Gathering place, but you need tickets, which are almost sold out. Tickets typically go on sale each year on August 1st.
  • Witches Weekends: The gals are out in force on Fridays and Saturdays from Sept. 30-Oct. 29, 2022. Look for them in the Center Court area from noon-3:30 p.m on Fridays and until 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

Heartfelt Thanks

WitchFest stands out for so many reasons, but we think everyone would agree it’s the Gardner Village Witches who take the experience over the top. Thanks, all, for the enchanting engagement you help us  create year after year.
