Mission Statement

The Mission Statement of The Haunted Forest is: "to create a unique and exciting Halloween experience of theater in the woods and to promote the Vermont values of fun, family, and community involvement."


What is this event? The Haunted Forest combines outdoor theater, special effects, and the magic of the night forest as well as the mystical popularity of Halloween to delight audiences of all ages. Performances are October 18-20, 26-27 at the Catamount Family Center in Williston, Vermont. How cool is this event? The Haunted Forest is a unique Vermont Halloween celebration that has entertained audiences for more than 25 years. It is one of the Top Ten Autumn events in the state of Vermont (selected by The Lake Champlain Chamber of Commerce) and multiple performances sell out every year. The Haunted Forest attracts an audience of over 6,000 people. It is the largest outdoor theatrical event and the most popular Halloween event in the state. What happens at this event? Mysterious guides lead guests through the dark and foreboding forest, where paths are lit by over 1,000 flickering Jack-O'-Lanterns. Throughout their passage, visitors encounter strange and fascinating characters in a variety of scenes befitting the Halloween season. The costumes, makeup, and special effects enhance the macabre mood of the forest. Every now and then, a surprise from the darkness gives folks the good-natured scare they are seeking. The entire Haunted Forest performance is orchestrated to evoke the spooky, playful, and eerie aspects of Halloween in a one-of-a-kind setting. Who produces this event? Production of The Haunted Forest is made possible by the hard work and dedication of over 400 volunteers! Volunteer participation in The Haunted Forest provides a unique opportunity for individuals and organizations to support a community non-profit organization. Indeed, it was a group of volunteers that formed the organization to continue the event when the Green Mountain Audubon made its decision to no longer host the event after 21 years.
