This October event, just in time for Halloween, is the witchy social event of the season. Held at the Grand America Hotel’s sophisticated Lobby Lounge, this gathering of Witches is the perfect opportunity to wear your finest robes, gowns, capes, jewels, staffs, wands, pentacles and of course your finest, tallest or pointiest hat. This is a formal event–fine witch wear and a hat are required. Warts, toads, brooms and pointed noses are optional.

Saturday, October 12 @ 3:30 pm.

Tickets must be purchased in advance to reserve your spot. Tickets are $70 which includes the Grand America’s Afternoon Tea service (tea, sandwiches, scones and dessert), all taxes and gratuities plus entry into the best costume/hat contest in the valley! Those who prefer champagne, specialty bar drinks or other extras can easily work with your server to add those items to your ticket when you arrive at the Lobby Lounge.
