Guests at Gothic Galaween will experience an immersive environment with multiple art installations to explore throughout the exquisite vintage event space Michelle’s Ballroom, evoking a haunted mansion; a fully themed dinner catered by award-winning Kuma’s Corner with desserts by Poppie’s Dough and Sugar Realm Bakery; themed cocktails and mocktails; hand-drawn Edward Gorey-inspired portraits; and a silent auction including autographed memorabilia from STAR WARS and STAR TREK films and shows.
