Heritage Alliance Trivia Night Gets Spooky This October

The Heritage Alliance, or should we say Scare-itage Alliance is bringing its riotously fun trivia night back in October with questions to test your knowledge of all things spooky and historical!

 

Join us at the Eureka Inn in Jonesborough on Friday, October 8th at 7:00 pm for general history-based trivia questions, friendly competition, and a ton of fun! The Eureka Inn will host both events in their outside courtyard and feature a “light bites” menu.

 

Not a “history buff?” Don’t worry! These questions cover a wide range of topics and categories and include something for everyone. We will have questions about Halloween, witches, movies, and more!

 

Teams (of up to six people) can register up until the evening of the event, which will kick off at 7:00 PM and last about an hour and a half. We request that teams check in with the hosts prior to the event. Joe Spiker, Head Docent of the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum, and Megan Cullen Tewell, Programming Coordinator at the Heritage Alliance, will host the event, tallying points and administering prizes to the winners. The event is family-friendly and open to all ages. Cost is $5 per team, although additional donations are appreciated. This is an outdoor event (weather permitting), but we ask that you wear a mask until seated at your table, and we ask that anyone who enters the Eureka wears a mask. Costumes are encouraged.

 

You can sign your team up for trivia at Heritageall.org. The link to sign up for the event is at the top of the page. Like and follow the Heritage Alliance on Facebook for more information.
