Living History in the Garden: Mr. Paca’s Spooky Birthday

October 31 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Happy Birthday – and Halloween – Mr. Paca!

Visit the Paca Garden for a spooky good time this Halloween. Between 11 am and 2 pm, experience the William Paca Garden come to life as the fabulously dressed gentry of Colonial Annapolis gather to celebrate Mr. Paca’s birthday! Yes, this Signer of the Declaration of Independence was, in fact, born on October 31st. We invite you to come stroll the garden in a costume of any era or style and join in the celebration – no tricks, all treats!

For an extra-spooky good time, take one of our guided tours on this Halloween day. Your docent will share all things spooky, tales of disease, and about the potions and lotions that could be made from the plantings in the garden (Tours offered at 10 am, 11 am, 12 pm, and 1 pm; pre-registration recommended).

Cost: Included with admission to the William Paca Garden (starts at $5). Use the buttons below to pre-register for a self-guided experience or a guided tour for no-contact entry.
