The ghosts are starting to stir… the spirits are becoming restless… and the soft, cool breezes of autumn will soon begin rolling over our Isle of Bones

This October, come visit one of the most bone-chilling events in Key West! The Haunting of Fort Taylor, a haunted event that will change the way you feel about Key West.

Alongside the Haunt itself, our Open-Air Theater of Chills will be showing the black and white horror films of old that terrorized our parents and grand parents! So come for the night, have a scare, then grab some refreshments from our concession stand and enjoy some great classic horror!

On Saturday October 19th, we present the Vampire’s Ball… a costume party for the adults in the Salley Port of Fort Zach. There will be a cash bar as well as food concessions. So come prepared to dance and show off your Halloween costumes! We’ll have first, second, and third place prizes for the crowd-judged costume contest. Vamp’s Ball runs from 8:00 P.M. to 11:00 P.M. and is 18 and up!

Each year a large portion of the proceeds goes to save the fort, and every year we have been able to do more than the previous year. Last year just over $10,000 dollars went to help Fort Taylor! So for all of you that love a great scare, now is your time get your thrills and help save a great piece of our island’s past at the same time!
