Halloween is an exciting time around Toronto, which is only one of the many reasons we’re glad to call this city home of our bewitching brew. Now that the smoke from our Thanksgiving feast has cleared, it’s time to get geared up for all hallow’s eve, Steam Whistle style. This means Halloween costumes, this means Halloween games, this means the sort of good natured and fun as Hades Halloween revelry you’d expect from the good beer folk. We’ve scoped out the best places to live it up on the night of the dead, so read on. These are the best 2018 Toronto Halloween parties.
When: October 26 & October 27th, 9pm – 2am
Where: Steam Whistle Brewery
Join your friendly Good Fear Folks for our 17th annual Scream Whistle Toronto Halloween party! It all goes down out our haunted boo-ary over the course of three chilling nights. We’ve got Nino Brown, Skratch Bastid and Fields McQueen fueling our foamy fear with some sweet, scary tunes. We’ve got crazy costumes (so wear yours too), a frightening photo booth and, of course, the most wicked pilsner on the planet.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Night of Dread
When: October 27, 2018, 4pm -10pm

If you want your choice of Toronto Halloween parties has got to be creepy and eclectic, then drop on by the Night of Dread. Brought to you by Clay & Paper Theatre, 2018 marks this event’s 18th annual year. Expect a parade of your darkest fears. Expect an evening of masquerade and music. Expect pageantry, puppets, ghouls of stilts and fire spinners. Expect the unexpected. The Night of Dread is your pick if you delight in the uncanny and mabre, but shy away from an all out horror show.

Up for a street party? Then head to The Village and promenade along with the things that go bump in the night. Starting at 6:30pm, the boulevard opens for this pedestrian only party. Slip on your scariest or sexiest (or hell, just easiest) Halloween costumes and hit up the street’s cafes, boulevard and shops for tricks and treats
We’re all for party hopping, and will definitely be getting to as many of these Halloween parties as possible. Looking forward to seeing your delightfully wicked selves out and about too, hopefully, clad in a cool Halloween costume and necking with a frosty green bottle of Steam Whistle.
