    Witch Walk 2022, Saturday, October 22 from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Animal Benefit in Downtown Saratoga Springs, NY

    The 2022 Witch Walk & Dance now located in downtown Saratoga Springs, NY on Saturday, October 22nd 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. is a fundraiser/benefit to raise donations to support animal organizations. The event brings over 500 participants and thousands of dollars in donations and revenue to the local businesses by encouraging folks to put together their most imaginative “witchy attire” and decorate the streets with their beautiful hats, brooms, and costumes all for an amazing cause. 

    For 16 years (originally the Ballston Spa Witch Walk) this event has quickly grown to bring in more donations and participants in turn making the event more colorful, inclusive, and creative along the way. We offer the opportunity to dance fun, flash mob-like dances to lively music throughout the evening in various locations that welcome us for the 5-15 minutes of dances. Historically, including teaching a few spectators or fellow “witches” along the way. 

    The “witchy” participants patronize local businesses, explore the town, participate in the witch dances, and enjoy an evening out with friends making new friends along the way.

    The “Witches” add an element of fall, Halloween, and everything October is meant to be when they come to town and “Wander” the streets for the evening!
