From the excitement of kids choosing that perfect costume to the fun of family traditions, Halloween is definitely one of our favorite holidays! To celebrate our favorite time of year, we’ve put together an incredible line-up of Halloween events at the Silver Spur Resort! Whether you are staying at our Canton KOA Kampground, or a Canton local looking for fun Halloween events for the whole family, we’ve got you covered!
Family-Friendly Mystery Dinner (October 26th & 30th)
Silver Spur Resort is a popular venue for Murder Mystery Dinners! Over the past year, we have hosted several adult-themed murder mystery parties. This Halloween, we are bringing the fun to the whole family!
Our new Halloween-themed Mystery Dinner, The Thing in the Cellar, is a family-friendly, interactive mystery game. In this 30-minute experience, friendly monsters work together to solve a Halloween mystery. If you have been looking for something different to do with the family, we highly recommend our mystery dinner. All ages can participate in this fun and unique experience; come make some memories!
We are hosting our Mystery Dinner on 2 dates the week of Halloween, October 26th, & 30th. The entire experience will last approximately 2 hours, with 30 minutes of game time and dinner. Tickets are limited to 20 people and the dinner will be held inside Stagecoach Hall. Click here to reserve your Halloween Mystery Dinner tickets!
Want to host your own Murder Mystery Party? We can help! Mystery parties are a fun idea for your next business meeting, family reunion, birthday party, team-building event, holiday party, or other gatherings. We have a variety of adult-themed murder mysteries and family-friendly (non-murder) mysteries that range from short, 30-min games to longer ones that last an hour. The Silver Spur Resort offers two event venues, our large Barn that can accommodate up to 300 people with indoor and outdoor space, and Stagecoach Hall, commonly used for smaller gatherings under 100 guests. We also offer reduced venue rental when you choose the Q & Brew for your catering needs. Contact our team to discuss your party planning needs!
Chuckwagon Experience (October 30th)
If you are looking for a unique Western dinner, right here in Canton, Texas, look no further than our Chuckwagon Experience! Modeled after the chuckwagon dinners of cattle ranchers after a long hard day’s work, this modern experience gives you and your fellow pioneers a taste of the Old West. Catered by our Q & Brew restaurant, with meats smoked slow and low, you will enjoy a BBQ feast served right from our authentic Chuckwagon. Our menu can vary, but typically includes our delicious ribs and chicken, two sides, like our delicious potato salad and cowboy beans, biscuits, and our mouth-watering seasonal cobbler cooked fire-side in one of our dutch ovens. No guest is left hungry after dining at our Chuckwagon Experience!
Silver Spur Resort’s Chuckwagon Experience is held monthly, during Canton’s First Monday Trade Days weekends. Depending on the weekend, we will host the experience on one or two nights. Typically, the event is held outdoors behind the General Store where there is plenty of picnic bench seating, live music from local talent, fire pit, outdoor games, and plenty of room for the kiddos to run around! In the event of rain, the dinner will be moved indoors.
