Halloween Parties

The Wickedest Gatherings in San Diego

Halloween is here and it's time to leave the trick-or-treating to the kids. This Halloween, get ready to roam the streets and clubs of San Diego and have a ball at the wickedest Halloween parties in town.

Be the Afterlife of the Party at Devilishly Fun Soirees

Halloween’s not just for the kids in San Diego: Our region is positively haunted with fun and fantastical activities for grown-ups to indulge in when the spooky season arrives. Halloween parties abound around town, including such one-of-a-kind wild times as the San Diego Zombie Crawl in the Gaslamp Quarter (San Diego’s vibrant Downtown nightlife zone) or the irreverently festive Nightmare on Normal Street in Hillcrest. And dedicated revelers will find San Diego’s bars, restaurants and craft breweries very undead at Halloween (be it day or night), with costume contests, themed cuisine and other frighteningly fun offerings. It’s also a great time to venture (if you dare!) into San Diego’s scarily varied haunted tours, mystery-laden historic sites and supernaturally sensational special events, from Howl-O-Scream at SeaWorld San Diego to the Haunted Trail of Balboa Park. So check back here in September for the latest dates and details — and then get ready for some very satisfying Halloween scares in San Diego, where every “boo!” is included.
