Spirit Season 2022
Saturday October 29 & 30, 2022 | 2-10pm
Each year, Homer Watson House & Gallery (HWHG) is host to a fundraising festival known as “Spirit Season.” An ever popular series of events, Spirit Season celebrates Homer Watson’s interest in Spiritualism and HWHG’s reputation as one of the most haunted buildings in Waterloo Region.
This year, the event will be expanded to include a brand new, cocktail making experience. Participants will be invited to gather rare and medicinal ingredients from the grounds and apothecary and brew their own potions and tinctures!
The Recipe Book
Upon arrival, participants will receive a copy of “Watson’s Potions & Tinctures,” a recipe book with instructions to create several cocktails. Each participant can choose to create 3 cocktails over the course of the 2 hour event. The recipe book will include both alcoholic and non-alcoholic recipes.
Participants will receive clues to locate cocktail ingredients from the grounds at HWHG. The HWHG groundskeeper will be available to assist any participants who lack a green thumb.
After gathering ingredients from the botanical gardens, participants will enter the apothecary shop, where they can acquire additional ingredients with the assistance of the HWHG apothecary and use special equipment to concoct their potions and tinctures.
