Things are about to get super spooky in The Six, and we can’t wait to slip into our ghoulish garb and party at some of the best Halloween events in Toronto. 

Considering Toronto is the biggest city in Canada, you can bet that there are a ton of parties. The question is, which ones should be at the top of your list? Halloween is but once a year, after all, but with Halloween 2019 falling on a Thursday, you can get a whole weekend of partying in before All Hallows Eve rolls around. 

So, what events should you attend to prime the ol’ pumpkin? Keep reading. These are the best Halloween events Toronto has to offer.

Haunted Walk at Wonderland 

Cost: Starts at $31.99

When: Select nights between September 27 to October 27, 2019

The Halloween Haunt held annually at Canada’s Wonderland is one of the most terrifyingly anticipated Halloween events in Toronto. Featuring gory spectacles, mazes, haunted house and tons of treats and a totally unique “scream park” experience. 

Things to keep in mind: Halloween Haunt is not meant for children under 13 and arguably, not for some big kids over 13 either. It’s that scary. (Bring extra pants.)

Also, Halloween Haunt is one of the rare Halloween events in Toronto where you don’t dress up. Guests in costume or make-up will not be allowed to enter the park. Leave the scaring to the professionals.

Halloween Costume Crawl 

When: Saturday, October 26, 2019. 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Cost: $25-$125

Where: Starts at the Madison Avenue Pub. 14 Madison Avenue. Toronto, ON M5R 2S1

The Halloween Costume Crawl celebrates its 24th year lurking around the streets of the city! Make this the year you join. Presented by Student Tours, this roving party allows you to creep from one party to the next aboard a party bus. All you gotta do is bring your ID, don your Halloween duds and meet your pals for an epic night of partying.

Oh, and you don’t have to be a student to join this Crawl, but keep in mind that most of the people there will be from the city’s studious population.

Toronto Monster Dash 

When: Sunday, October 27 at 3:30pm. 

Where: Ontario Science Centre

Grab the family, lace up your shoes, get into your costumes and enjoy a day of freaky festivity and fitness in the annual Monster Dash Toronto. This is one of the few Halloween events Toronto has to offer that provides you with an outlet to burn off some calories..before you eat them all again. 

That’s called balance, friends!

In addition to a 5km, 10km or Spooky Mile for kids, there are prizes, treats and contests galore. 

Scream Whistle Party

When: October 26, 2019. 8:30 p.m. to October 27, 2:00 a.m.

Where: The Roundhouse, Steam Whistle Brewing. 255 Bremner Blvd, Toronto. 

Cost: $35–must buy tickets in advance.

Last but never least, creep on over to The Roundhouse for the 18th annual Scream Whistle Halloween Bash. Featuring the funky, freaky tunes of DJ Skratch Bastid, we’re brewing up the best Halloween party Toronto has to offer. 

We’re talking a best costume contest, a $7 full bar, and a host of Halloween fun with the city’s coolest party people. Scream Whistle is always a sold out event, so get your tickets now!

The key to finding the best Halloween event Toronto has on-tap is to find the event (or events) that appeal to your festive feel. People who love the all-out, underwear-soiling horrifying kind of Halloween will definitely want to try the Halloween Haunt, while people who like a less bowel-loosening vibe will love the Monster Dash and our party–and you can do them both in one weekend, so bonus.

If, on the other hand, you want a high-energy Halloween with a few thousand of your closest friends, then the Halloween Crawl is probably the boo for you. Whatever you decide to do this Halloween in Toronto (or anywhere!) be sure to stay safe and have fun!
