Our absolute favourite holiday is just around the corner and in case you’re like the rest of Toronto – you know the masses of people who flock to the city’s best Halloween party stores the week before Halloween rolls around – we think you may be in need of some Halloween party recommendations early on in the game!
First things first, we’ve got your Halloween ride covered (you can thank our friends at Uber for that one). So now all you need is to nail down which event (out of the 100s available) to attend. Well we’ve got you covered on all angles. Check our picks for top 5 Toronto Halloween events below.
1. Halloween Massacre at Roy Thomson Hall
If there’s one Halloween event you should plan on hitting in Toronto, it’s going to be this one. For the first year ever, over 1,800 people will attend the Halloween Massacre inside the prestigious Roy Thomson Hall. Home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and venue of choice for film festival gala screenings, this is definitely going to be the cream of the crop when it comes to elite Halloween events in the city.
2. The Burroughes Haunted Mansion
For the sixth year running, the Burroughes Mansion loft on West Queen West will be turned into Toronto’s preeminent Halloween party. With over 100 years of history – not to mention a lofty feel with exposed brick walls and an incredible rooftop terrace – this is hands down the best backdrop for a haunted Halloween mansion.
3. Halloween Pub Crawl
If you’re looking for something a little different this Halloween, the Halloween Pub Crawl may be just what you’re looking for. This year, get ready for 3 nightclubs – all within a short walking distance of one another! There will also be absolutely no cover and instant entry to all events.
4. Ghost Ship
The only thing better than celebrating Halloween inside a venue space or club this year? Celebrating it on the water, of course! This year, Ghost Ship will take place on the Empress of Canada (boarding at 11 Polson Street at 9pm sharp). With 3 levels to party and hors d’oeuvres included in the cost of your ticket, it’s no wonder this event is sold out every year.
5. Curious Halloween
Looking for an intimate, yet upscale venue for Halloween this year? The brand new Ace Nightclub is located in the heart of the trendy King West district and will be hosting a special Halloween event on both Friday & Saturday. Featuring VIP tables with tufted silver fabrics, antique mirrors and handcrafted chandeliers, Ace Nightclub is one of the hottest venues on King West. Best of all – this event gives guests the option to save when buying tickets in packages of 4 or more!
