Until November 16, 2019, the bravest of visitors are invited to step into the darkness in the heart of Old Québec City. People of all ages can take part in the many activities over an extended period on the Plains of Abraham and spend an evening that is both fun and terrifying. Meet the ghosts of the past and learn more about the gloomy history of the Plains and about the characters that have left their mark on it. Celebrate Halloween well beyond October 31 and book your spot for a frightening time!

Enjoy a host of new features

The program of activities has been revamped this year for even more chills! Meet up at the mysterious Martello 2 Tower for the Stories to Wake the Dead on October 18 for visitors ages 13 and over. Storytellers use their vivid imaginations to thrill and delight! Another featured activity is the Convinct’s Last Drink on November 7 and 8. Tavern owner Jos Vaillancourt welcomes you to his establishment for activities on military justice, leisure and punishment meted out to 19th century soldiers. There will also be beer sampling on the menu!

Activities tailored to all types of visitors

Don’t hesitate to bring the family along for Halloween! The Haunted Tower is a fabulous tour on the roof of the Martello Tower with bewitching surprises for the little ones. More daring visitors can bravely follow the Ghoulish Walk to see the murkier side of the Plains and hear the obscure legends that are linked to this intriguing location. You can also sign up for the Tales of the Bad Old Days. Horror fans will get a kick out of the anecdotes about shameful diseases, stolen corpses and violent deaths based on true stories from historical records.
