Visitors at Family Halloween


Thursday, October 18
Sunday, October 21

October 18-21 and October 25-28, 5:30pm-8:30pm

Take part in a 31-year old tradition at Living History Farms – Family Halloween! Families are welcomed into the 1875 town of Walnut Hill to enjoy safe, non-scary trick-or-treating at our historic businesses, try their hand at pumpkin bowling, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, and listen to enchanting storytellers. Living History Farms offers “teal pumpkins” stops for trick-or-treaters with allergies. Buy your ticket early – pre-registrants save money and skip the line!


Theme Nights

Need some costume inspiration? Take a look at our theme for each night!
  • Thursdays: Double Treats and Athletes – Get twice as many treats, dress up as your favorite athlete, and meet a local mascot!
  • Fridays: Doggone Scary – bring your furry friend along (in costume!) for trick-or-treating. Get treats for your dog and take home a canine caricature.
  • Saturdays: Fairytales and Superheroes – meet your favorite characters and dress up in your best superhero and fairytale costumes.
  • Sundays: Farmer & Friends – Dress up as an animal on the farm, a farmer, or Victorian style like a person in the past! Wear your best “Living History Farms” themed costume for trick-or-treating, and stop by our petting zoo to see some farm animals!
