Marshall SkeletonFest 2020

The leaves are changing and so is SkeletonFest

Starting Saturday, September 26, skeletons will once again be haunting downtown Marshall, but due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no kick-off party or official Pub & Grub Crawl – Boo!

Throughout October, stroll the downtown and take selfies with 32 life-size “humorous” skeletons; go trick or treating with Tiny the T-Rex, be the only live person at a birthday party, or play a game with the skeletons visiting Grand Street Park. Share the fun on social media using #MarshallSkeletonFest.

Many restaurants will feature special fall or Halloween-themed drinks, appetizers and menu items. Visitors are encouraged to grab their favorites and enjoy them in the new Marshall Social District, located in the alleys behind some Michigan Avenue businesses. Everyone at the table can have food from a different source, from downtown establishments or brought in from other local eateries.

Don’t forget your swag! SkeletonFest shirts are available for purchase at the Marshall Welcome Center located at 323 W. Michigan Avenue and online at through the Choose Marshall store.
