Since we launched in 2010, hundreds of families throughout the Catskill region and beyond have attended the Halloween Journey.  Back by popular demand, The Halloween Journey will launch its 9th season in October 2019. Presented by the Catskill Center, in partnership with the pine hill community center, CafĂ© de la Culture and 100,000 poets for change in Mount Tremper, NY. We are assembling a qualified team of artists and educators to create an extraordinary 2019 season to be remembered! 


The Halloween Journey was created by Cara Cruickshank, along with a group of local area moms who wanted a fun, safe and affordable way to celebrate Halloween outdoors in the Catskills.


  • Community events that appeal to all generations are hard to find.
  • Safety is an important concern for parents and their children on Halloween.
  • Price is an important concern for locals who want to attend a quality event that celebrates the season.


The goal to create an event that promotes wonder, not fright.

Our first year, 130 community members of all ages attended. Attendance grew exponentially over the next 6 years with 400 audience members by its 7th year. We are excited to bring it back for its 10th season this year, by high demand!


The Halloween Journey, a mysterious and magical celebration of Catskill history, ecology and folklore.
