Theatre Bizarre - 6:30PM - 2AM

Theatre Bizarre (500 Temple St, Detroit)

Enter our exclusive Formal Masquerade Gala with an audience limit of 500, instead of the normal 5000 attendees. This affords you an intimate, guided tour showcasing some of the years headlining talent and the more iconic acts of Theatre Bizarre without having to run through the event hoping to see the highlights.
Ticket includes Strolling Dinner, Open Bar, and Valet Parking, and there are several special performances that can only be seen at our Masquerade Gala. Along with Masquerade Gala exclusive entertainment, you’ll be granted an unprecedented experience as the number of performers throughout the night outweigh the number of guests – blurring the line between patron and performer and welcoming you to become a part of the show!

Haunted Detroit: the Dark Side of History Tour - 12PM - 5PM

Detroit History Tours & Detroit History Club (3448 Gilbert St, Detroit)

From the days of French settlers and the ghouls who tormented them, to the grim realities of early factories and their gruesome death tolls; Detroit is a town with a devilishly scary past. Its citizens have long straddled the line between good and evil, and more than a few rules have been broken over the years. As Halloween approaches we can all spare a nervous glance towards Detroit's darker side. It’s never wise to travel alone through the storied corridors of history, so we willingly offer ourselves as your guides on this macabre journey through the Motor City’s darkest historical moments.
