In Vancouver, Halloween is so much more than one night of trick-or-treating, costumes, and too much sugar. There are a ton of fun, spooky events happening all through October that your kids are sure to love!  Here are some of our favourites.


Day of the Dead at the Stanley Park Ghost Train. October 8th. 5:30pm - 9:30pm.

All aboard! Celebrate the Day of the Dead with a ride on the Stanley Park Ghost Train through a tunnel of flames and a haunted graveyard. Live music, theatrical performances and more will be sure to delight the young and young-at-heart. Don’t miss this Halloween favourite! 


Vancouver Halloween Expo. October 13th - 16th. 

Don't miss out on this unique event!  This family-friendly expo is based around an artistic vision, so there are tons of dances, performances, films, comics, anime, and games for a truly unique experience.  Unlike other Halloween events, this one is non-gruesome in nature; you wont find gore, blood, or any violent themes here.
