Wickedly Grande Halloween Display
Welcome to Wickedly Grande! We are family-friendly haunted food drive benefiting St. Joseph’s Food Program! Please help us feed the Fox Valley by donating non-perishable items to our donation bin located at the edge of the driveway. Wickedly Grande has been haunting southeastern, and now northeastern Wisconsin since 2001. Our walk through home display is designed for those who like things creepy and gross but not too gory.
We are free (your non-perishable donation is highly encouraged), outdoors, and open to the public. Returning visitors know that our theme changes from year to year. We recently concentrated our efforts and have settled on two major ones we will rotate: cemetery and haunted farm. The majority of our props are homemade and static, with a few store-bought and animated ones are thrown in. Who appears each year is dependent on the theme and their purpose in the story we are telling. We begin prop construction in spring and display set up the first week of October.
The display then runs through Halloween night. Since it takes a full week to finish setting up, we urge you to watch for our “Opening Night” announcement. Full operations (music, fog, animated props) takes place Thursday – Saturday nights and Halloween night, from 6 PM till 9 PM. Other nights it is lights only. Know that this is also weather dependent, so if it is raining, snowing, or extremely windy, we will remain dark. We also encourage you to stop by during the day to see the details you can’t see at night. Since we are a home haunt located in a subdivision, we ask your consideration of our neighbors when you visit. We do not have sidewalks, so please walk up our driveway, enter between the columns, follow the path to the exit, then walk along the outer edge of the fence to get your best views. Taking pictures and videos are allowed, but only from your side of the fence (for safety reasons). We also have a photo area set up as part of the fence line.
Please feel free to sit with our handsome creatures to take photos. We do ask that you do not touch or try to move the props as they are heavy. We are also happy to answer any questions you might have, so feel free to say “Hi”. We welcome you to our haunted home, hope you enjoy the bit of magic we created, and thank you for contributing to the work of St Joseph’s Food Program!
