Lanterns light your way through an 18th-century fort and fur trading village overrun by werewolves, witches, goblins and ghouls. Storytellers weave spooky folktales near bonfires and treats such as hot mulled cider, cookies and candy can be found throughout the site. Most stops are suitable for all ages, but a haunted house and demon walk will give thrills and chills to adults and children alike.

New for 2019! The Frolic at the Commanding Officer’s House offers guests an exclusive opportunity to enjoy 18th century snacks, drinks, music, and spooky stories. Reminiscent of the lively parties hosted by merchants John and Archange Askin, or their good friend Captain Arent DePeyster  and his wife Rebecca, the Frolic is an opportunity to experience the finer aspects of Michilimackinac society. Each 20-minute program includes historic treats, refreshments, and scary stories not available anywhere else at Fort Fright. A limited number of tickets are available each night on a first-come, first served basis. Tickets will be available for $5 at the event, and must be purchased with general Fort Fright admission. We hope you’ll join the exclusive circle of friends who experience the Frolic at the Commanding Officer’s House!

Tickets are available at the Colonial Michilimackinac Visitor’s Center.
