I have been on many brewery tours over the years, as I am passionate about beer and the brewing process, but the Brewing Apprenticeship at Black Creek Pioneer Village was unlike any brewery experience I have ever had. Because the Brewmaster involves you directly in the process, I feel like I came away with a deeper understanding of how brewing... More

We went to Howling Hootenanny today. I was not impressed. They didn't really do anything special for Halloween. There was no decorations. They ran out of pumpkins. They had the cheapest candies and gave only 1 each and refused to give candies unless we had the small paper trick or treat bag that they had. They had a spooky eye... More

Black Creek has a vast amount of land. Upon it sits many buildings depicting life as it was possibly 100 years ago. There are demonstrations in the Black Smith Shop and in one of the homes where a woman dressed in period costume could be baking bread or some other treat that can be sampled. You may see a broom...

Night time in the Pioneer Village was already creepy enough but add the dark history told in such a delightfully wonderful way by the expert guides of the Haunted Walk and the hair will stand on the back of your neck. I strongly recommend getting tickets before the season ends.

This was such a unique evening. Ghost stories told on an historic property, while we explored the houses at night. Shannon was our guide, and she was awesome, really spooky and funny. I liked that we were given flashlights to find our way, and we got to keep them. It felt like we had left the city.

We took the grandchildren aged 5, 3 and 2with a bit of apprehrension. How long could they last. Turned out they lasted 3& 1/2 hours! After a slow start as the actors got into place, the kids (and us) were fascinated by what was on offer. The buildings have their own special attractions. There were three actors that were outstanding... More

This is a great way to learn about Black Creek at night. Very spooky and very informative. Margo is a great story teller and we loved that we had her again for another walk, I would recommend everyone to go and experience this place in the dark.

I have been recently in the fall and its stunning, but if you can get tickets for Christmas than you need to try. Its a great event, this place is hidden well by trees and you can hardly hear traffic outside.
