Concerts can happen anytime and anywhere, and that includes even on Halloween! One of the biggest Halloween concerts held annually is the Something Wicked Festival where a crowd of 20,000 have partied during the Halloween weekend wearing their favorite costume.

Something Wicked is always held at the Sam Houston Race Park featuring cutting edge visuals, and amazing performances from international DJs, coupled with festival-friendly food vendors to keep the festival goers fueled and refreshed.

Top 7 Halloween Events You Should Check Out and Day of the Dead Festival

A colorful celebration of the Day of the Dead Festival


Mexico not only earned its name from being a tequila-land, with their land brimming with tequila distilleries, but also from celebrating the Day of the Dead Festival or Día de los Muertos every November 1st and 2nd.

Contrary to popular belief, this popular Mexican tradition turns out to be one of the liveliest and colorful days in Mexico. This is one of the most interesting Halloween event ideas you should borrow and even organize one for yourself! To make it happen, choose a location, be it in a bar or even in your backyard. Decorate your venue with candles, flowers, and also make a dead of the day masks, which can be done through painting the face or can be done via DIY. This mask is basically a skull-shaped masked that can be decorated in plenty of ways.

Next, add some Cartrina figures, a costumed female with a skeleton face, wherever you want it. Finally, don’t forget to set up your Mexican dishes!

Fun runs during Halloween don’t only bring out the creativity in you, but you get to sweat out, have some fun, and even take home some exciting prizes as well. To offer a twist to your upcoming fun run, why not add some zombies chasing after the runners? Or maybe Pennywise running after you for a change?

For a more challenging run like the ones in The Great Pumpkin Haul, runners carry an orange gourd while traversing into some obstacles. Why not try other themes this time to make your fun run event buzzworthy?!




5.    Ghost Tours

Thrill seekers love the idea of ghost tours or ghost walks as a Halloween activity. This type of Halloween event idea needs in depth research about a particular haunted area in the town and a story that revolves around it.

Perfect example of a popular ghost tour in America would be the Boroughs of the Dead where most modern-day ghost hunters discover and roam around the century-old buildings in New York. This type of Halloween event does not only create buzz on your local tourism,  but this can also create a revenue profit for event organizers as well.


6.    Masquerade Balls

Masquerade balls are probably one of the most popular Halloween event ideas not only in America but in other countries too. For you to organize a successful masquerade ball, careful planning is key. Make sure to have a budget, impeccable catering services, unique invitations, a great venue, and of course an exciting theme. It will also be best if you have special guests or local DJs spinning out some known tracks to amp up the night.

Best examples of themes you can use for a ball are those with a mystery theme, those with a vintage touch, or maybe a hint of mardi gras!



7.     Mystery Dinners

Nothing piques the interest of the curious and the thinkers rather than joining a mystery dinner event. Getting started on this type of event must be witty and creative.

Why not create an email invite about the dinner with of course, the ideal dress code which can be a masquerade theme or an all-white ensemble? Then prepare a multi-course meal, create a unique scenario, and get great actors to play their parts to make it ever more interesting. This interactive event allows the audience to experience on hand on getting clues, questioning the suspect, and solving a mystery.
