Family Friendly Halloween Events in and around the GTA

Trick or Treat! It’s that magical time for kids and adults to embrace their imaginations and dress-up in the spirit of Halloween! We love this holiday, possibly more than any other! Halloween brings out the kid in everyone, and gives us a great sense of community as we decorate our homes, visit our neighbours and shell our candy on Halloween night. There are so many great family events in and around Toronto – check them out and get into the spirit with your friends and families! Happy Halloween! 

Please note: Some events in this guide may be more suited to families with teens and could be scary for some younger or more sensitive children.
