A Toast Among Ghosts!

Join us for A Toast Among Ghosts on Saturday, October 14 and enjoy a spooky night of fun, food and beer in a historic cemetery at the Reisterstown Branch.

The historic Reisterstown Branch was formerly the Franklin Academy, where in 1831, Edgar Allan Poe applied to be the headmaster. He wasn’t selected, but every year, Poe returns to one of his old haunts.

Enjoy live music from local bands Edgar Allan & the Poe Boys and Porch Setters Union, food from Bully Boss BurgersFlash Crabcake CompanyJust Like Home Indian Cuisine and The Reister’s Daughter, beer from RavenBeer, wine, local authors and vendors, famed Edgar Allan Poe impersonator David Keltz (found, appropriately enough, in the graveyard), portrayals of historic Reisterstown residents, ghost stories around a fire pit and guided tours through the moonlit historic Reisterstown Community Cemetery (est. 1764).

Enter the costume contest! The theme this year is “Petrifying Poe.” Wear your best Edgar Allan Poe-inspired costume and enter to win a gift card. Be creative! First, second and third place winners selected by a panel of esteemed judges.

General admission tickets are $50 each. VIP tickets are $75 and include VIP entry and a swag bag containing two drink tickets good for beer or wine, a 16 oz. glow-in-the-dark Toast23 cup and an Edgar Allan Poe print.
