Things around Denver feel a little (okay, a lot) different this year, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t still plenty of Halloween fun to be had! After all, it’s Fall in Colorado and Pumpkin Spice everything is everywhere! Check out our list of safe and kid-friendly Halloween Events to make the most of this season!
October 1st – 31st | 9am – 5pm (gates close at 4pm)
Join us for a modified, masked version of Denver’s family favorite! Throughout our 84-acre campus, classic animal stories and fairy tales come to life with costumed characters, mythical creatures, unforgettable animal experiences, and food fit for a king or queen! And don’t forget: Nature Connects®, Art with LEGO® Bricks will still be up for your enjoyment, too! So, get the whole family suited up in costume, and come celebrate Halloween in a way that’s safe, socially distanced, and candy-free…but still VERY sweet.
Denver Zoo, 2300 Steele St., Denver
October 31st | 2pm-4pm (event is open to first 1,200 participants)
Halloween in 2020 isn’t quite the same, but it can still be full of fun for everyone! Throw on your costume, get the family loaded in the car, and head to St. Anthony’s North Health Campus for a fantastic trunk or treat event!
14300 Orchard Pkwy, Westminster
October 25th | 3pm – 5pm
Most years downtown Boulder is invaded by thousands of tiny ghosts & goblins, dinosaurs & dragons, fairies & princes, superheroes, and animals of every size trick-or-treating along Pearl Street. This year, as we all navigate life in a pandemic, the Downtown Boulder Partnership has adapted Munchkin Masquerade to include physically distanced games and activities that can be enjoyed downtown for two weeks leading up to Halloween. Play Munchkin Bingo, enter the Masked Photo Costume Contest, and enjoy all the fun in Downtown Boulder this Halloween.
October 30th | 5pm – 8pm
Much like the rest of 2020, Halloween Safe Night will look a little different this year, but the Firestone Police Department is still excited to celebrate with the community. This event will have booths with activities, a live DJ, decorations and photo opportunities, food trucks, and more socially-distanced Halloween fun for the entire family! Don’t be late — the first 700 children there will receive a pre-filled bag of candy.
Firestone Regional Sports Complex, 6850 Tilbury Ave.
