Spirit Quest 2017 – Houdini and Doyle


September 29th - October 1st, 2017

Two of the most iconic men involved in pop culture around the turn of the 20th century were the writer of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the famous escape artist, Harry Houdini. The author and the magician might seem like an unlikely duo, but the Fox TV series Houdini & Doyle is based on their real friendship. Although Fox cancelled the series, Spirit Quest explores some of the cases they worked on during the show and their real life investigations as well.

Whether you're more of a believer like Doyle or a doubter like Houdini, there's something pretty fascinating for you at Spirit Quest!


Friday Night
Dining with the Dead & Houdini Stage Show

  Join us for a special costumed Dining with the Dead(costumes optional). Enjoy a heart warming meal of Lenzi's famous chicken pot pie and vegetables served with rice and New England Apple Pie and vanilla ice cream for dessert. We will have prizes for the best costumes and light entertainment. You will even have the opportunity to have your photo taken with a "Ghost" at the William Hope and William Mumler Ghost Photo Booth.

Then step back in time, as you will discover for yourself what it was like to attend the Great Harry Houdini Stage Show. You will be amazed as the Amazing Viano performs feats of escapism and mystifying magic.

The evening ends as it did with Harry's performances with a séance under the watchful eye of the Great Houdini. Will he expose the medium or will she collect the prize?

Doors Open at 6 PM

6-7 PM - Meet and Greet
7 PM - Dinner
~ 8 PM - The Main Event: Do Spirits Return? (The Houdini Stage Show)



Saturday Night
Psychic Detective, Haunted House & Houdini Séance

After light dinner of pizza and soft drinks you will be divided up into groups. One group, under the guidance of trance medium Maureen Wood, will learn to develop their instincts to become a psychic detective in a special workshop. The other group, under the supervision of the "Wall Street Journal's Gold Standard in Ghost Hunting" Steve Parson from the UK will take part in the haunted house experiment,where they will use their skills to differentiate the normal from the paranormal.

As the night continues, Steve and Maureen will exchange groups so that everyone has the opportunity to take part in both events. The night ends with a Harry Houdini Séance including artifacts once used by the magician himself.

Will Harry come through? Will we receive a message? Or will we visited by an unknown visitor? Join us and find out!

Sunday's Special Presentation:

Connecticut is often referred to as one of, if not the most haunted state in the union. There is good reason for this; Connecticut is pretty much crawling with paranormal activity. Steve Gibson, magician, researcher of spirit phenomena and avid collector of haunted items, will take you on a journey into the ethereal world of Connecticut's past. Steeped in history and actual haunted events,
The Haunted Connecticut Experience will trill and make you wonder, Do Spirits Return?
