The Ohio State Reformatory is thought to be one of the most haunted buildings in the country and is the setting for The Shawshank Redemption which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
INKCARCERATION promoters promise an epic year. “Building off such a strong inaugural year, we are so stoked to give our fans even more in year two. With Billboard chart-topping bands such as Shinedown, Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch leading the way, tattoo artists from around the globe, and the historic backdrop of the haunted Shawshank Prison, INKCARCERATION 2019 will be the don’t miss rock event of the summer in the Midwest!”
“Escape from Blood Prison” is the annual Halloween haunted house attraction held at the Reformatory from September to November each year. This year, the spooky attraction will be available to festival-goers all weekend long.
“It’s an honor to be able to open the doors of Blood Prison a couple months early and give the guests of INKCARCERATION a few scares in July! The warden, his family and the Blood Prison inmates are all excited to meet the fans at INKCARCERATION,” says Vic Amesquita, manager of Blood Prison.
