If you’ve already checked out our list of pumpkin patches around Vancouver and are itching for more, we’ve got you covered. After all, there’s no better way to celebrate spooky season than by checking out some Halloween experiences around Vancouver. And luckily, there’s a wide variety of them to look forward to this year!

Here are 10 spooky and special Halloween experiences around Metro Vancouver.

Hallowed Eves at Playland

The all-time classic option looks a little different this year, but should be just as fun. Rather than the usual Fright Nights, Playland will be hosting a series of ‘Hallowed Eves’ complete with crazy outdoor performances, roaming actors, and the ability to enjoy their most thrilling rides after-dark.

When: October 8th to October 31st
Where: 2901 E Hastings Street
Cost: $39.50

Parade of Lost Souls

If you’re looking for something a little smaller in scope but no less fun, this could be it. The Parade of Lost Souls has been delighting diehard Halloween heads and curious first-timers for years now. Probably because they’ve got everything from a Thriller flash mob to kid-friendly options to an afterparty for adults.

When: October 30th
Where: Starts at 1661 Napier Street
Cost: Free to attend

Halloween Concerts at the PNE

Speaking of parties, the PNE is planning not one but two major Halloween concerts this month. The more energetic crowd will probably opt for DOOMS NIGHT (with headliner Martin Garrix), while those who want something a little less intense will enjoy the FISHER/Bob Moses concert the day after.

When: October 29th and October 30th
Where: Various locations
Cost: $58.50+

Halloween Movies at Rio Theatre

If Halloween movies are your jam, then the Rio Theatre is the place to be.

And yes, we’re talking about The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Vancouver Horror Show Film Festival

Eerie Illusions at Burnaby Village Museum

Alright, back to a few kid-friendly options. Brand new for this year, Eerie Illusions will transform the Burnaby Village Museum using state-of-the-art projections, lights, and sounds. Historic villages are spooky enough on their own after-dark, so we think this will be worthwhile for all ages.
