1. Create an Experience

While our retail trick-or-treating program is still being considered, we are here to support any member-driven experiences over the Halloween period. Do you have a fun, creative Halloween idea that will appeal to visitors? Let’s partner! Suggestions include:

  • Haunted House or other haunted experience
  • Costume contest or pop-up costume shop
  • Pumpkin carving exhibition
  • Halloween film screenings
  • Children’s activities/crafts: ducking for apples, mask making, etc
  • Costumed Gala Event – Halloween or Day of the Dead (November 1st)

To learn more about available funding for new or related Halloween experiences, please review our Experiences Fund Application Criteria.
