Each year, Conner Prairie stages a fall family tradition that has spanned more than 30 decades. Headless Horseman is a Halloween celebration based on Washington Irving’s classic, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” There are numerous activities for children of all ages and their families. The spookiest event at the festival is the haunted hayride, a tractor-pulled hay wagon that winds through 1836 Prairietown and includes up-close experiences with the Headless Horseman himself. New this year, a 7-acre corn maze has been carved into the prairie fields.

Enjoy a great fall day! The animals offer the perfect backdrop to this event. Enjoy Halloween-themed Dolphin Adventure Presentations and animal chats throughout the celebration. Even the elephant herd will get into the Halloween spirit with the pumpkin-gut splattering fun of the Elephant Pumpkin Smash. The little ones are encouraged to dress up in their favorite wild costumes! For the safety of all our guests, adults are not permitted to wear masks or makeup that would obscure the face. Masks are only allowed for children ages 12 and under.
