As the clock ticks closer to Halloween, all sorts of enchanting wizardry events are popping up around the province. To add to the magic, a brand new fantastical market will be taking place to celebrate the spooky season. Stratford's Witches and Wizards Market will transport you to a world of sorcery and charm this Halloween.
Across Ontario, witches and wizards are joining together in beer crawls, dark magic train rides, and more. This festival, set against the backdrop of the quaint downtown Stratford, the market welcomes all magic and non-magic beings to take part in an afternoon of enchantment.
Hosted by the Sip & Shop Night Market, the Witches And Wizards Halloween event will run throughout the afternoon on October 26.
Guests are encouraged to dress as their favourite witch, wizard, or magical creature. You'll get to explore booths selling mystical goods and bewitching treats. Visit the tealeaf reader to find out your fortune, and meet real-life predatory birds. Cast your vote in the Butterscotch Beer competition between local vendors.
Test your skills in the wizard-themed scavenger hunt! Solve clues, tasks, and riddles that will lead you on a magical journey around the market. The scavenger hunt has a five-dollar admission fee, and all participants will leave with thirty dollars worth of prizes. There are only one-hundred-and-fifty spots available for the hunt, so make sure you're there early to grab one before they all disappear!
The market runs from noon until 6 p.m. on October 26 in the Stratford Market Square. Invite your wizard and witch friends and take part in this mystical event!
