ghostwalk 2020 version 2

Special announcement: Culture Summerside’s Historic Ghostwalk is happening Thursday, October 22nd!


We are so excited to be granted permission to mark this special 20th anniversary of Ghostwalk which tells the history of Halloween and the darker side of Island history.

The anniversary celebration will present the “best of” as chosen by Ghostwalk participants. The top 9 will be selected for the show. 

Ghostwalk 2020 will look a little different in order to meet COVID-19 public safety guidelines. The big change is, there will be no walk through the historic district. Rather, in order to maintain physical distancing, Ghostwalk will be stationary on the lawn of Wyatt Heritage Properties with the Wyatt House Museum and the Lefurgey Cultural Centre as the hauntingly fitting backdrops.
The spirits will appear on stage to deliver their ghastly tales. 

Showtimes for the Historic Ghostwalk are 6:30 pm, 8:00 pm, and 9:30 pm. 

All seats are $10.00 and can be purchased at the MacNaught History Centre and Archives, 75 Spring Street, Tuesday through Saturday 10 am to 4:00 pm or by calling 902-432-1332.
