Halloween events abound in Calgary! Scare yourself silly with the best spooky events, scary attractions and Halloween parties taking place in the city. The staff at ChatterBlock has compiled a list of some frighteningly fun time events that you will surely enjoy!

Top Halloween events in Calgary for 2018:


Join Billy, Roxy and the Boo Crew at Calaway Park this Fall! Take a stroll down Hallo-Street… if you dare! It is a spooktacular good time for the whole family! 

Saturdays and Sundays, September 8-October 8, plus the Thanksgiving Monday
Calaway Park

Flashlight Nights

The Calgary Corn Maze is fun and challenging at any time, but just think of trying to navigate the paths at night using only your flashlight! Flashlight Nights are an extremely popular activity as guests love getting lost in the dark. Bring your flashlights and your sense of direction!

Flashlight Nights draw a predominantly older audience (youth groups and adults). We still have lots of young families that attend and just love it, but please keep in mind it is a much different experience than visiting in the day as the maze does get quite dark and there is an older audience on average.

Fridays and Saturdays, starting September 14
Calgary Corn Maze & Fun Farm 

Pumpkin Palooza

Walk through the pumpkin patch, take beautiful photos, and pick your favorite pumpkins to purchase for Halloween carving! 

October 5 - October 28
Cobb's Corn Maze & Family Fun Park

Harvest Pumpkin Hunt 

A favourite annual memory maker for the 8 and under crowd!

If your kiddos like seeing a tractor-pulled hay wagon, rolling through the crunchy fall leaves, and finding some kid-sized pumpkins, the Harvest Pumpkin Hunt is a must do this Halloween season! Once they find the perfect pumpkin, your kids will have a blast decorating it to become a creative pumpkin-head masterpiece! 

Saturdays and Sundays, Oct 5-28 (See schedule for availability, book in Advance)
