The Fantastic Terrors of Edgar Allan Poe

“Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.” –Edgar Allan Poe

The short stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe come alive outside the buildings of Old Sturbridge Village, as told by the characters who have just witnessed them occur. At six different locations throughout the Village, tales of horror, revenge, obsession, and deception will be repeated in pulsating rhythm…like a beating heart.

Written & directed by PJ Griffith for Old Sturbridge Village & Coggeshall Farm

While COVID 19 slayed Sleepy Hollow, the Headless Horseman still rides at Old Sturbridge Village. Look out, he’s bound to show up when you least expect it.

Mysterious Melodies of Lawrence Trailer

You may have seen him at the Village before, but you’ve never seen – or heard – the haunting acoustical stylings of Lawrence Trailer like you will during Phantoms & Fire.


Prospero’s Tavern

The menu will include beer, wine, hard cider, hot cider with or without rum, hot cocoa, popcorn, cookies, and more! There will also be two specialty cocktails: the Annabel Lee (peach schnapps, vodka, blue curacao, pineapple juice, and sour mix) and Ravens Blood (gin, vermouth, Chambord, grenadine, and pomegranate syrup). Enjoy plenty of safe outdoor dining and live music by Lawrence Trailer.
