“Spirits of Wake Forest” ghost walks will lead small groups through downtown Wake Forest, safety precautions required
If you’re looking for a “hauntingly” good time this fall season, then don’t miss the inaugural “Spirits of Wake Forest” ghost walk coming to downtown Wake Forest. Presented by Wake Forest Downtown (WFD), Inc., these tours will be offered throughout October 2020.
Downtown Wake Forest’s buildings and sidewalks have seen well over 100 years of history, and they have some spooky stories to tell! Join WFD, Inc. and their incredible cast of storytellers to learn about the tragic train wrecks, murderous mamas and “borrowed” corpses that make up just a small piece of downtown’s haunted history.
Lasting approximately one hour and 15 minutes, each ghost tour will take place in Historic Downtown Wake Forest’s business district, primarily along South White Street. Tour groups will meet outside Wake Forest Town Hall, 301 S Brooks Street, Wake Forest, NC, and the ghost walks will begin promptly at the scheduled time.
Tours are within the business district only and will not include private residences.
Tour tickets will be offered each week for select tour times:
- Thursdays @ 6pm

Tickets must be purchased in advance at bit.ly/DowntownWFMarketplace (payments managed via EventBrite). Note: Tickets are non-refundable/non-transferable. Tours will take place rain or shine.
Spirits of Wake Forest is planned and hosted by a volunteer committee, and all proceeds from ticket sales will serve as donations to further the mission of WFD, Inc.

- All ticket purchases will be handled online rather than in person.
