A Madison Halloween

Oct 20, 2017


The leaves are changing, there’s a chill in the air—and you have plenty of options to make your Halloween in Madison frightfully good. Visitors with kids love the Halloween themes at Madison libraries, designed just for little ones. Throughout October, costumes are encouraged at ghostly story times, so you have a full month of revelry leading up to the big night of trick or treating.

Don’t forget about the Downtown Madison Family Halloween, where you can trick or treat from over 80 downtown locations! Held at State Street and Capitol Square, it’s for children ages 12 and under. Enjoy spooky stories, hay rides and much more at this annual event.

Scare Up Some Fun

Freakfest goes down October 28 with an incredible lineup but get these tickets fast! They do sell out. The massive music festival is the biggest Halloween party in the region, featuring over 15 acts on three stages over six hours of non-stop fun. Over 30,000 tickets are sold every year.

Halloween at the Zoo is the perfectly petrifying way to celebrate Halloween eve. Free and fun for the entire family, there’s complimentary trick or treating, tons of activities and chances to have some animal fun. What will your first Halloween move be?
