*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 10/30/2021
Denver Botanic Gardens dares you to join us after dark for the haunting stories that lurk throughout the Gardens' 100 years of history. Stroll through the dark paths at your own pace as the socially distanced storytellers share real staff encounters, security guard accounts and the intriguing history of the place that was formerly known as "The Boneyard." If you are feeling bold, we invite you inside the Waring House for an exclusive visit of the Beaux-Arts style mansion and the secrets it might hold. Conjure your courage and capture your fear as you walk our dimly lit paths after hours and dare to have your own ghostly encounter, here at Denver Botanic Gardens. This tour is self-guided, and you may visit the storytellers in any order you would like. The tour should take approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. Storytellers will begin new stories every quarter-hour.
