Haunted Pioneer Town

OCTOBER 25, 2019 – OCTOBER 27, 2019 | 7:30 PM


Enjoy an evening of frightful family fun in a Hill Country Pioneer setting. Pioneer life was hard. It’s even harder when it’s haunted. Life on the frontier was a constant struggle with gun fights, drought, snakes, coyotes and…ghosts?! Perhaps these ghosts still dwell in Pioneer Town.  The Wimberley Players and 7A Ranch have teamed up to haunt Pioneer Town at 333 Wayside Dr. in Wimberley on October 25-27. 

Experience shivers and shakes with ghouls, ghosts and other scary creatures not often found in your normal pioneer village.  As darkness falls on October 25 & 26 gates will be open from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. and October 27 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Ticket sales close at 10:00 pm on Friday and Saturday and at 9:00 pm on Sunday. 

COST: $10.00

Medieval Monsters: Terrors, Aliens, Wonders

OCTOBER 27, 2019 – JANUARY 12, 2020 | 1:00 PM


From griffins and giants to demons and dragons, monsters have enthralled people throughout time. In medieval art and literature, these fanciful creatures give form to fears, curiosities, and fantasies of the unfamiliar and the unknown. Medieval Monsters, organized by the Morgan Library & Museum in New York, will present a lively array of monsters that appear in more than fifty illuminated manuscripts from the European Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Each of the three sections of the exhibition—Terrors, Aliens, and Wonders—will explore the ways monsters functioned as the embodiment of power, the representation of marginalized groups in society, or the inspiration of awe.

Medieval Monsters: Terrors, Aliens, Wonders is organized by the Morgan Library & Museum, New York.

The Blanton presentation is organized by Holly Borham, Assistant Curator, Prints & Drawings, Blanton Museum of Art
