A Taste of Science

Saturday, October 26th from 6:00 – 9:00pm

Join us for an extra special HALLOWEEN edition of ‘A Taste of Science’ to benefit the nonprofit Lancaster Science Factory!

This SPOOKTACULAR night will feature delicious food and drink by local restaurants, music and dancing, costumed fun, and MORE – all set against the backdrop of a newly expanded Science Factory.  We’ve grown by 50%, added a ton of fun new exhibits and Maker Space. These exhibits aren’t just for kids – we can’t wait to share the new space with you at this party!



NEW FOR THIS YEAR, our host and mistress of ceremonies will be THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, Kahmor Vixenn! For your dancing pleasure, DJ Smiles will be spinning the scientific and spooky tunes. Go all out for your chance to win our costume contest or craft your own Halloween mask or costume in our Maker Space. Wear your costume over to Tellus360 where you can receive $5 off admission to their Halloween Party with your Taste of Science proof of attendance!
