When it comes to a memorable Halloween, experience is everything. Whether it’s the scary storytelling or the anticipation-filled haunted houses, the best experiences build up tense feelings, include some mystery, and provide that adrenaline-seeking jump scare, or a great photo opportunity for social media.
There are different experiences that are happening all over Toronto this year, so it’s important to know what type of event you would like to go to first before you purchase tickets.
For Halloween events, there are ghouls ghost walks, fun Halloween costume parties, theatre shows, movie festivals, and classic haunted houses.
Here are our recommendations for the Top Halloween Events Around Toronto
The Howland Inn Séance
Those who dare can join a small group of 16-18 other guests to try to make it through one of the Greater Toronto Area’s scariest experiences, The Howland Inn Séance. This experience is a spine-chilling recreation of an authentic Victorian Séance that takes place in one of Toronto’s oldest and most haunted Inns. It’s a psychological experience not for the weak or faint of heart and is for those over 18+ years of age.
Fort York After Dark
History buff? Tour the historic Fort York in a different light. Fort York After Dark is a spooky lantern tour of the grounds of Fort York and its historic surroundings!
