History of Haunted Happenings
Free, virtual event
This year is an anniversary heavy year for us– as many of you may know! Not only is it the Salem Witch Museum’s 50th anniversary, it is also the 30th anniversary of the Salem Witch Trials Memorial and the 40th anniversary of Salem’s Haunted Happenings festival (both of which this museum was instrumental in creating).
Beginning in 1982 as a weekend-long, family-friendly fall festival, Haunted Happenings immediately surpassed all expectations, growing into an enormous annual celebration. Join us for this free virtual event as we discuss why this festival was created in Salem, its early days, and how it has grown and changed ever since! If you are a Halloween enthusiast, this is an event for you!
This presentation will take place on Zoom on Thursday, October 6th at 6:00 PM EST. The Zoom link will be shared the day before the event. We will record the presentation and share the recording on our YouTube page for future accessibility.
