Boos & Brews

October 28, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm


Spend a memorable evening with spirits on the
ghostly, historic campus of Old Swedes’ Church

Wander the grounds, encounter the graves of historic figures and hear their tales of lamentation. Will you come face-to-face with the dreaded Col. Ripka? Or the women whose hearts he broke? Perhaps you’ll see a plundering Philadelphia pirate or a sailor who was doomed on a voyage at sea?

While you mingle with the living and the dead, enjoy gourmet hors d’oeuvres, local craft brews and enter a cork raffle where everyone wins. Tickets are $50 each. This event features:

  • Ghost Stories
  • Graveyard Tours
  • Gourmet hors d’oeuvres from Chef Reuben Asaram
  • Delightful desserts from Chef Cory Powell
  • Local craft brews from Cartesian Brewing
  • Local craft ciders from Hale & True Cider Co.
  • Live jazz music courtesy of The Jazz Sanctuary
  • Cork raffle (where everyone wins!)*

Proceeds from this event support the restoration of Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Church and its graveyard.

*Please note: the cork raffle is not included in the ticket price.
