2020 Ghost Tour Season!


In coordination with efforts across the state and nation to protect the health and welfare of citizens, the Town of Wilkesboro is cancelling all organized events scheduled for the Carolina West Wireless Community Commons, Wilkes Communications Pavilion, and Cub Creek Park through May 31st, 2020. This cancellation applies to all town-sponsored events and private reservations. This decision was not made lightly given the significant time and funding invested by all parties in planning and organizing events. It is the hope of town officials that continuing social distancing and limiting public gatherings for this extended time will help to ensure the health and safety of the community.


We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 Pandemic and determine closer to the scheduled tour dates if we will proceed  or cancel a tour. Please revisit this page or visit our social media for  more updates. Stay safe and healthy! 


There will be two (2) tour times offered for each date – 7:30 pm and 8 pm. Tours will be limited to 12 people. First come, first served. ONLY pre-paid reservations will be honored. No refunds will be given for missing your reserved tour time.

  • Saturday, May 16th  canceled due to COVID-19 Pandemic

  • Saturday, July 18th
  • Saturday, August 15th
