A Night at the Castle at Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum

October 27, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

What happens at the Castle when the lights go out?  Join us and find out! This unique, costumed event takes place in the historic Castle Warden in St. Augustine, Florida, home to the very first Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum.  The Museum will be closed to the general public for this private event.

A Night at the Castle is a fancy, costumed affair celebrating 5 centuries of St. Augustine’s historic fashion and folklore.  Costumes should represent any historic fashion relevant to the last 5 centuries of St. Augustine’s history.  Styles can include Gilded Era, 1920s, 16th century Spanish, Historic Military, Rococo, Pirates, Steampunk and much more.  Creativity is encouraged. “Horror” themes are discouraged, however.  Costumed visitors will represent the many ghosts that are certain to linger in the oldest city – spanning 5 centuries.

Small bites, music, fancy sweets, soft drinks, champagne, beer and wine included. Surprising entertainment at every turn. Mingle among the many oddities on display at the museum open only to our ticketed guests.

A professional photographer will be on site to capture your creations. Costumes or fancy/cocktail attire is required.

Ticket includes all night access to the Ripley’s Museum.

All sales final.  No refunds. Sponsored by Ancient City Brewery.

This event is the Ghosts of St. Augustine’s Past festival launch event – a fundraising gala for Art & Life in 3D., a Florida non-profit. Art and Life in 3D’s mission is to help create unique and engaging interactive platforms in support of fine arts, humanities, music and performance arts.

A percentage of the proceeds will also benefit local food banks.  The Ghosts of St. Augustine’s Past 3 Day Festival  is sponsored in part by the St. Johns Tourist Development Council and the St. Johns Cultural Council.
