October 6, 2017 - October 7, 2017

Windigo Fest will be a celebration of all things Halloween taking place Friday October 6th and Saturday October 7th 2017. The spine-chilling festival will take place in historical downtown Manitowoc, Wisconsin on Franklin Street, right outside the chamber door of the town’s “quaint” little tourist destination know as Dead by Dawn Dead & Breakfast.  All Hallows Eve enthusiasts with a hunger for the strange and unusual can experience a weekend filled with various seasonal activities including outstanding music, costume contests, a blood drive, dark art exhibits and contests, bizarre performances, the historical cemetery bus tour, Windigo team competition and Pall Bearer relay, and a flash film fest contest concentrating on the horror genre.  On Friday evening we will kick off the event with an EDM extravaganza featuring Matik.  After a day full of Halloween havoc on Saturday at 7pm, a parade heading backwards on North 8th Street, beginning at Bank First National, will display the Midwest’s best competitive costumes.  Wisconsin’s award winning band, Road Trip, will follow on the main stage. Join in on one of the many prize winning contests, give back by donating blood, or just slither into the horrific hoopla that Windigo Fest has to offer! Come for the day or stay for the weekend….but don’t be caught dead without checking out the first annual All Hallows Eve Windigo Fest!
