Learn about Cabinets of Curiosities, how mediums conducted seances in the 19th century, and how two girls tricked several newspaper readers into believing they had caught evidence of real fairies on camera. Have your palm read, create Victorian crafts, and much more! Plus, a visit from Charles Dickens, scenes from Portland Ballet’s “Tales by Poe”, and live music by the Shank Painters!
We’ll also have The Pink Waffle food truck onsite for visitors who want to grab a bite to eat while they enjoy demonstrations and performances on the lawn.
