This Halloween, Discover the Mysterious Gothic South.
The South holds some of the country’s darkest secrets. Her legends, lore, and history have inspired many of the most prolific writers since the nineteenth century. Take a journey with us into the South’s sordid past and meet the macabre characters whose ghosts are still feared today.
Vodou, Hoodoo, Conjures, and Root Workers have shaped (and shifted) Southern Culture for centuries. Who were these powerful men and women? Where do their magickal powers of influence come from? Join us as we visit some of the South’s most infamously Haunted Cities and discover the notorious citizens who made the Victorian South the Darkest Era in US history, a time we will never forget. All while indulging in a creatively curated Four Course Southern Supper.
A Southern Gothic Halloween is hosted by Black Sparrow Music Parlor, with supper prepared and served by Chef Rob Snow, proprietor of Greenhouse Craft Foods, and tales spun by Gretchen Upshaw, proprietor of Spell Caster Ghost Tours.
