Ghost Light

Sep 30, 2021 - Oct 17, 2021 at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

Ghost Light: A Haunted Night of Songs and Stories from KC’s Cultural Crossroads returns! This hybrid concert and ghost-story event weaves together local storytellers and musicians to share frighteningly fun tales from KC’s cultural crossroads that will leave you shaking with excitement! Under the stars on the south lawn of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, your family and friends will be transported into the world of spirits, hauntings, and the great unknown. New this year we are proud to be joined by Latinx rock’n’rollers Enrique Chi and Juan-Carlos Chaurand of Making Movies as featured performers each night! Performances sold out quickly last year for this limited engagement!

Ghost Light will be performed with no intermission. Run Time: 1 hour, 40 mintues



Ghost Light is a family-friendly event, however younger children might find it too spooky. We recommend it for ages 8+.

Seating for this show is general admission, outside on a grass lawn. Tickets are $30 per person. This show is BYOC - bring your own chair (or blanket). Seating will begin 1 hour before the performance.
