Halloween is right around the corner and if hosting your own Halloween party isn’t exactly your thing, don’t fret! We’ve got a variety of different Halloween events right here in the GTA for you to explore.

After Dark Film Festival

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.

Legends of Horror

Toronto’s majestic castle, Casa Loma will be transformed into a massive haunted house. The Legends of Horror is an immersive theatrical interpretation of all of the classic horror figures.


Screemers is back for its 25th year of terror at Exhibition Place. A Halloween tradition, this year’s attractions include a brand new Zombie Prizon, Skull Castle, 3D House of Cards, The Darkness, The Haunted House, Field of Screems, Slasher Wax Museum and a terrifying and gory show from illusionist Ryan Brown.


Steam Whistle Brewery is back with 16th annual Screamwhistle Halloween dance party. Screamwhistle takes over the brewery for two nights with music provided by DJs Skratch Bastid and Fields McQueen.

Dark Waters

Splash into Dark Waters for Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada’s Halloween event. Dark Waters is not your average Halloween party – beware of creatures from the deep.
