5 Things To Do On Halloween Night in Toronto

There's plenty of places for you to get your spook on

Halloween is here, and unfortunately, it’s on a Tuesday. You might be looking for an excuse to get dressed up and celebrate the spookiest holiday of the year. Have no fear, we’ve got five different things you can do tonight to celebrate Halloween.

Halloween on Church Street

Every year, Church street transforms into one of the biggest block parties the city has to offer. The Village will be filled to the brim with people decked out in costumes. Special guest DJs will be playing tunes for you all night long, and the best part is, it’s totally free.


Toronto Ghost Walk

If you’re looking to get scared, a ghost walk is the perfect way to do so. The Toronto Centre Ghost Walk takes you through some of the oldest and most haunted places around the heart of downtown. The tour is $17 and makes stops at the Mackenzie House, Massey Hall, and St. Michael’s Hospital. Reserve your tickets here.

Visit a Haunted House

Toronto has plenty of different scary experiences to choose from. Halloween Haunt at Canada’s Wonderland, Screemers at Exhibition Place, and Legends of Horror at Casa Loma are just a few to choose from.


Visit The ‘At Home With Monsters’ Exhibit

This might not be an event exclusive to Halloween night, but if parties aren’t your thing, then this might be the perfect Halloween-themed activity for tonight. The exhibit is a glimpse into the creative process of legendary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, and features props, books, and art collected from Guillermo’s workspace in Los Angeles.

Go to a Halloween Movie Screening

Sure, you could just stay home and watch scary movies on your own, but where’s the fun in that? There’s screenings happening all over the city, so there’s no excuse not to check one out. To name a few, you can catch The Exorcist at the Fox Theatre at 7pm, and then stick around for Halloween at the Fox Theatre at 9:30pm. You might also be interested in catching a screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Hot Docs Cinema on Bloor at 10:30pm. And yes you can definitely wear your costumes to all of these.
