Events Toronto Where to Go

Best Halloween Events in Toronto

Halloween is almost here and there’s a frighteningly fun month of events in store – from a horror film festival to a Halloween block party. Whether you’re looking to scare your pants off or break it down on the dance floor (in costume, obvs.), Toronto has you covered.

We’ve rounded up the Halloween events you won’t want to miss.

Scary Attractions & Festivals: Get the (living) daylights scared out of you.

Calling all horror movie fans! The After Dark Film Festival brings nine nights of horror and blood-curdling films, drawing thousands of thrill-seekers together to celebrate the rush of fear. The critically-acclaimed fest of new horror, sci-fi, fantasy and short films from around the world is a fan favourite in Toronto.

Halloween Haunt
Canada’s Wonderland will be taken over by 700 monsters this month, all on the prowl and ready to pop up when you least expect it. Brave 20 haunted attractions, mazes, and activities, from an eerie CarnEvil where maniacal clowns cause mayhem on streets, to a “devilish dance hall” and a thrilling roster of rides (including the Behemoth and Leviathan coasters). Don’t let your guard down!
