6th Annual Murphys Witch Walk and Vendor Bazaars
October 15 @ 11:00 am – 8:00 pm
The producers of the 6th Annual Murphys Witch Walk are proud to announce the expanded multi-award winning festival will take place Saturday, October 15, 2022, from 11 am to 8 pm on Main Street. For 2022, the Murphys Witch Walk will feature multiple vendor bazaars, charity raffles, live music at local businesses, and unrivaled costumed camaraderie in a festival event where All The World’s a Stage and Everyone’s a Star.
Fun for the whole coven, be ready to ‘eat, drink and be wicked,’ but be sure to dress to impress as your best Witch of Eastwick, Harry Potter character, Maleficent, sorcerers Saruman or Gandalf, Sanderson Sister, the witches of MacBeth or the Good Witch of the North, the Wicked Witch of the East, or whatever other fascinating fantastical mystical character you can conjure. And bring your diminutive witches, mini warlocks and assorted flying monkeys with you, because this is a family-friendly event.
A portion of raffle ticket and vendor bazaar $5.00 admission ticket sales, as well as other generated revenue, will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California in honor of Murphys’ very own 9-year old Wyatt Walker and the Walker Family. “Super” Wyatt, as he has come to be known due to his resilience to unparalleled adversity, was diagnosed in December 2021 with Medulloblastoma Brain Cancer, at which time he underwent emergency surgery to remove the life-threatening tumor from his brain.
The Murphys Witch Walk owes its success to its decentralized production concept that allows the business community to creatively participate without any direction or supervision from the festival producers, thereby maintaining the surprising uniqueness of the event year after year. Businesses host entertainment, music and/or decorate accordingly, displaying their creativity to create very festive and engaging destinations throughout town that curious attendees want to visit and explore.
The Murphys Witch Walk was established in 2016 by Teresa Rodriguez, owner of Murphys’ Potted Plum Mercantile, as a Costumed Friday Girls Night Out where attendees dress up, eat, drink and shop as a means to promote the Murphys Main Street business community. Since its inception, the Annual Murphys Witch Walk has grown to attract numerous costumed revelers, shoppers, families, and oenophiles to Murphys to explore, shop, dine, enjoy, and learn about this inimitable historic Gold Country town where many business owners report the Murphys Witch Walk is considered the #1 retail shopping day of the year.
