Halloween Weekend Events in Vancouver

Below are the highlights of Halloween things to do on the weekend of October 28th to 30th, as well as on Halloween day in 2022. For a list of both Halloween and non-Halloween events during the month check out Vancouver’s October Calendar.


Halloween Weekend Haunted Attractions

Most Lower Mainland haunted houses are open during the last week of the month, and many are open for much longer. Being the last weekend of October and Halloween, folk can expect there to be especially large crowds on the weekend.

Haunted attractions that take place this year include Fright Nights at the PNE, HowlOver Canada at FlyOver Canada, Reaper’s Maze of Terror in Chilliwack, Brinkworth Dungeon in Langley and Vancouver Horror Nights in Coquitlam, among others. There are also Lost Souls of Gastown walking tours with Forbidden Vancouver and Halloween Mystery Nights games in downtown Vancouver.

Other haunted attractions include The Empty Chest in Burnaby and Grave Tales in Fort Langley. Don’t Flinch was also going to happen at the FOMO Gallery and Art Immortal was going to take place at Beaumont Studios, but both events have been postponed until 2023.

Note: We list lots of events below, but details are subject to change. See event websites for exact information.

Halloween Haunted Houses


Free, By Donation and Charitable Haunted Houses

Amazing free, by donation, and fundraising haunted houses that rival even the most professional commercial attractions are listed below. We love these places, several of which are at people’s private homes but are open to the public. As of late September in 2022, the status of some attractions below are still to be confirmed.

  • Anmore Manor – a haunted residential home in Anmore from 7 until about 10 pm. Admission is by cash donation. (It happens on the last two weekends of October in 2022.)

Other free attractions that normally take place, but not in 2022, include the following:

  • Dovercourt Crypt – a free haunted house in North Vancouver’s Lynn Valley that’s usually open from dusk until 9:30 pm. This place is also very impressive! (CANCELLED)
  • The Haunt of Edgemont – a haunted house at a family’s home in North Vancouver that’s open to the public by donation (with all proceeds benefiting the BC Firefighters’ Burn Fund). This place is amazing! (CANCELLED)
