Portland’s Davis Graveyard 2018 Halloween Schedule, Info & Photos | FREE, One of America’s Largest Home Haunts, 80+ Tombstones, Lights, Effects, Fog More!

Portland’s Davis Graveyard
Free | All Ages
More info: davisgraveyard.com

In its 18th year, Davis Graveyard is one of the largest home haunts in the country. They have over 80 tombstones, a mausoleum and a three story ruined abbey – there are several statues in the display.

They are lights only Monday through Thursday and they have video and animitronic effect and fog Friday, Saturday until 11pm (and on Halloween night) and Sunday until 10pm.

It is free to view from the street. It is NOT a haunted house (you do not walk through it). This family friendly attraction is not gory and nothing will jump out at you.

Parking:
When parking and viewing the display, please be respectful of the neighbors, trick-or-treaters, and the traffic on Johnson Creek Blvd.

About the Davis Family
How does one become obsessed enough with Halloween to dedicate months of time, hundreds of dollars and the better part of their home to the transformation? It all started with our family and friends. We love Halloween. They love Halloween. We’ve always wanted to create an elaborate yard display … so have they. And faster than you can say “trick or treat” the plan is hatched. Next thing you know, they’re spending every available minute at your house, transforming the garage, driveway, front yard and house into a realistic graveyard. From this initial haunt, the 1031 Club was born.

When we purchased the house we live in today. From the moment we laid eyes on the yard, we knew its destiny was that of the ultimate Halloween cemetery. It took several years to bring the dead and dying to life, but the dream has become a reality. For over 10 years, we have created a creepy crawly yard haunt that has attracted people from all over the Portland area.

It has become a spectacle of spectres that we are all quite proud of. But none of this would have happened had it not been for our good friends and family members who started us down this path, as well as the inspiration from fellow yard haunters throughout the country. From our family of freaks, fiends and the gratefully undead to yours, happy haunting.

Everybody
All Ages
More info: tickets.artistsrep.org

Death tells Everybody that their time is up. But Everybody doesn’t want to greet Death alone, so Everybody seeks the company of their friends Stuff, Kinship, Friendship, Cousinship, and Love to make the trip bearable. From the scintillating mind that brought you An Octoroon, Everybody is an audacious riff on the 15th century morality play Everyman. Nine brave actors will play a multitude of roles with their characters chosen by lottery onstage every night — with a possible 120 combinations — as they fight to cheat Death.

It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play!
All Ages
More info: artistsrep.org
(No shows Tuesdays, December 24)

The beloved holiday staple comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast with the story of George Bailey. George grew up in picturesque Bedford Falls, but dreams of leaving the small town behind to see the world. Obligations and unforeseen circumstances get in the way of his aspirations and he is tied to his hometown forever as he takes over the Building & Loan from his father and his uncle. When a terrible mistake leaves George on the verge of disaster, he considers ending his life on Christmas Eve until he meets a fateful friend named Clarence. Made complete by your favorite local talent and an onstage Foley artist, It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is a fun, heartwarming delight for the whole family.

“It’s easy for the audience to get caught up in the fun.” -Anita Gates, The New York Times
