Cave After Dark

Cave After Dark is a popular series of themed events for adults twenty-one and older. Each event includes an after hours cave experience, food and beverage tastings, live music, theme-related activities and cash bar. These events typically sell out so purchasing tickets in advance is strongly recommended.

As a public health precaution due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), all events and public programs are canceled. (We will be in contact with individuals and groups that have a reservation.) Cave of the Mounds will continue to follow the guidance of local public health officials to assess the situation and will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so. The health and safety of Cave of the Mounds guests and staff is our top priority. Cave of the Mounds will continue to provide updates on our website at
