More Info

Fort Mifflin, one of the most celebrated haunted sites in America, will host “Horror at the Fort” — a day of history, horror readings, and ghost hunting to support the preservation and operation of Fort Mifflin, an important part of Philadelphia’s history.

The family-friendly daylong event, organized by PARA-X Radio and the “What Are You Afraid Of?” horror and paranormal show, will feature tours of the fort and paranormal investigations led by PARA-X hosts (Paranormal View, What Are You Afraid Of?, The Shadows and Dark Sun Rising) as well as an array of local vendors. Paranormal enthusiasts will also enjoy a special nighttime investigation in this notorious Philadelphia haunt. “The Paranormal View” and “What Are You Afraid Of?” will record and broadcast live from the event, including live horror author readings from independent and local authors as part of the Philadelphia Reader’s Series.

Authors reading at the event include rising stars of horror fiction James Chambers, T. Fox Dunham, John Foster, Phil Thomas, Shannon Giglio, Meghan Arcuri-Moran, and Peter Giglio. The terror from their latest tales of the macabre will resonate with fans of the genre and newcomers alike in the unsettling atmosphere of Fort Mifflin, which has been featured in several paranormal television series such as Ghost Hunters and Haunts at Fort Mifflin.

General admission is from 12 p.m. until 8 p.m., after which the evening investigation will run until 2 a.m. Media is welcome at the event. The authors, hosts, and organizers will be available for interview or comment upon request.
Daytime admission, which includes the horror reading, is $10. VIP packages, which are required for participation in the evening paranormal investigation., are available for $45. All of the proceeds will be donated to Fort Mifflin, and tickets can be purchased here.
