Things to Do for Halloween in Edmonton

by Alyssa Ott

The clock strikes midnight. It’s just cool enough for jacket-wearing-weather. A fog rolls up over the hills of the river valley. The newly fallen leaves crunch under your feet. You take a deep inhale of that crisp October air and think to yourself… IT’S ALMOST HALLOWEEN, WITCHES!

Sound about right? Well, this blog’s for you. Get down with your freaky-deaky all-hallows needs and pack your October calendar with a seemingly endless supply of spooky happenings. For ticketed events, be sure to buy early because many of these ghoulish outings sell out fast.

Late night dance parties
Want to party like the Sanderson sisters after achieving immortality? These 18+ ragers are sure to put a spell on you and your dancin’ shoes. Costumes are encouraged, but sorry, flying vacuums aren’t allowed:

  • SCREAM : 2018 Date TBA at the Shaw Conference Centre
  • Halloween Howler : 2018 Date TBA at the Shaw Conference Centre

A touch of culture, with a side of AHHHH

Family friendly activities
Halloween is the greatest, but no one wants to traumatize the young kiddos and ruin this fantastic holiday forever. We get it! There’s plenty of fun kid-friendly activities happening throughout October to satisfy everyone’s inner witch or werewolf:
