The Enchanted Forest in Hubbard Park, Montpelier, is a guided walk from the New Shelter to the Tower and back again. Along with the jack-o-lantern lit trail, visitors will find the forest filled with art, music, song, and magic. At the Tower, visitors will spread out on the hillside to watch a performance, and then return along the path to the New Shelter. This will take about one hour.

All visitors are requested to respect social distancing and to stay with your group. Masks are optional, but costumes are encouraged!

Tickets are available for groups leaving the New Shelter every half hour on Friday, October 14, 4:30-7:30 pm, and Saturday, October 15, 3:30 -7:30 pm.

Prices are $6 per child, $12 per adult, or $30 for a family of four. No tickets are sold at the event. Get your tickets early because they sell out quickly! Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Please arrive at least 30 min prior to the entrance time on your ticket, as you will need to park and walk up  to the New Shelter. There will be attendants assisting with parking.

Dress for the weather and bring a flashlight.

This event is weather dependent. In the case of hard rain or lightning, we have in the past had to cancel or delay tours. In the event of a cancellation we unfortunately cannot offer refunds.

This event is co-created by AllTogetherNow! and Montpelier Parks & Trees Department. Please consider donating to the Montpelier Youth Conservation Corps, which helps organize Enchanted Forest.

Call to Artists, Performers, Guides, &  Volunteers!

We are looking for ARTISTS who want to be a part of decorating the woods, playing music, offering an interesting scene (living and natural sculptures, singing, magical beings sitting by a fire, trolls, fairy houses etc.).

We are looking for enchanted guides to lead groups through the event and volunteers to help set up and take down.

The park is decorated with art, music, performance and song. These are non-interactive pieces, they are meant to be seen/experienced as people are slowly walking by. Art installations can be made of natural and man-made materials. This event is both in the daylight and night, so installations that are illuminated by LED lights are encouraged. The theme of the event is magic and mystery of nature. We are not seeking any Halloween, frightening art, but magical, and aesthetically beautiful pieces. This is not a place for precious art, as it will be outside for several days in the weather and we cannot guarantee the safety of the work. However, it will be seen by nearly 1000 people and we can acknowledge your contribution publicly.
