About Us

Gilt & Fanfare combines rousing entertainment with carnival merriment and a dash of October mystery! The Circus is coming…and, for one weekend, you can join it!

For one weekend, we all run away and join the Circus. Enter a blissfully peculiar world with a semi-immersive environment that blends the imaginary and the real into a delight for the senses, brightened by amazing food, great performers, fascinating vendors, and lots of other Dreams and Delights!

Dress in your best and finest, or your costumes, or your most comfortable clothes. Let’s trick-or-treat, eat a ton of candy, interact with characters from all manner of genres, all fellow participants in our wondrous Figmental Circus experience Let’ s tell stories, hang out around a (virtual) campfire. Let’s see some shows, search for clues, interact with splendidly unusual characters, rock to live music, explore mysteries, eat some great food, and meet new weird and wonderful friends!

Who cares who your day job thinks you are? Come be your REAL self! Bring the family! This weekend-long, all all-ages adventure celebrates everything we love about Halloween and the Circus – right at the start of Summer, when we need it most.
