*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 10/31/2021
Presented in partnership with Quixotic, Powell Gardens ushers in fall with an immersive, multimedia walk-through installation in the woods. As the dark lush veils of nightfall sweep solemnly across an eerie Midwest sky, Dark Forest (October 22-24 & 28-31, Thursday-Sunday) invites you to journey through a magical and mysterious landscape brimming with enthralling performance, captivating music, and innovative creative technology where the channels of nature’s mortal realms are fiercely pierced by unexplainable paranormal forces and spellbinding supernatural beings. At Dark Forest, the universe’s most coveted secrets are freely revealed to all those who wander.

Inside this wildly uninhibited labyrinth of darkness and light, the most eccentric and ethereal creatures of the universe are free to be utterly themselves and unleash the electrifying powers of their spine-chilling gifts in boundless form. Alluring trees coded with secret messages, black waters embodied with mesmerizing reflections and glowing owls imbued with purifying insight are few among the many signs of nature’s map that will guide you and your loved ones all the way through the tantalizing peril of bat’s bend to the illuminated grounds of garden fairies, angels and gnomes. A forest of integrated darkness and boundless multiplicitous power, all who enter must cultivate an unshakable trust within their soul to be able to marvel in its most brilliant light while not falling prey to its most hypnotizing dark. Dare to brave the call of the sinister night and discover the soul-awakening phenomena that quietly lingers just beyond the glimmering light!
