SAN ANTONIO – Rich with history, and potentially paranormal sightings, Victoria’s Black Swan Inn will play host to San Antonio’s Paranormal Fest in September.

Tickets for the festival have been known to sell out months in advance, according to event organizers, who also said that tickets for the 2020 festival will be honored since the event was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Festival attendees will be given tours of the historic home which was built in 1867 on the site of the 1842 Battle of Salado.

Psychics, mediums and palm readers will be on hand as well as local paranormal investigator teams and other paranormal professionals.

Regular admission is $45 for September 18 and VIP tickets, which also include a paranormal investigation, are available for $75 on September 17.

The VIP experience on September 17 marks the 179th anniversary of the Battle of Salado.

“We will lead you to the battlefields and the Salado Creek Battle Memorial. We will also offer you valuable historic information to utilize during investigation time,” event organizers said as part of a Facebook event post.

VIP ticket holders will also be given the chance to explore the property until midnight and paranormal investigative equipment will be available to use for free. Spirit communication sessions will also be available throughout the night.

Victoria’s Black Swan Inn typically hosts weddings and other social events throughout the year and famous musicians like George Strait, Jerry Jeff Walker and Flaco Jimenez have all performed at the inn.
