Little Village is thrilled to announce this year’s Witching Hour Series, a joint presentation with the Englert.

In past years, Witching Hour has been a weekend festival. For 2022, individual events spanning from late September to the end of October will all bear the Witching Hour name. They will remain focused on the ongoing Witching Hour goals of exploring the unknown, discussing the creative process and presenting new work. These carefully curated events will offer a fresh perspective and encourage audiences to celebrate the arts as an expression of community.
