Folkmoot Friendship Center at the historic Hazelwood School

On October 28th and 29th, Folkmoot opens the historic Hazelwood School for the second annual Spookmoot Haunted Schoolhouse. Participants will get face-to-face with the ghouls and spirits that reside in the school along with frightening internationally-themed characters who danced at Folkmoot Festival and refused to go home.

Frightening folk tales come alive in the halls of Haunted Hazelwood School from 8:00pm until midnight. This experience will feature the haunted school walk, popular food trucks, games of corn hole and pumpkin catapults in the back of the building, while you wait. Scares include several adrenaline junkie favorites and folklore characters that will make your blood run cold.

Tickets with set tour times can be purchased in advance for $15 at or by calling (828) 452-2997. Haunted Hall participants must be 12 years old or older. Parking is best in back of the school.

Folkmoot’s year - round programming initiatives have been made possible by Haywood Regional Medical Center, Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, the Cherokee Preservation Foundation and the Mountaineer.
