Festival Of Halloween To Launch In Adelaide!

The inaugural Festival of Halloween will make its spooktacular debut at the Waterside Workers Hall on Saturday 5th October, transforming the historic hall into a haunted haven for Halloween fans.

Organised by Adelaide haunt operator Stasia Read and Hallozween founder Andrea Beattie, the festival will be an inclusive, family-friendly event ensuring that everyone from the youngest trick- or-treaters to the most dedicated Halloween fans has a memorable experience.

We’re so thrilled to present Adelaide’s first ever Festival of Halloween,” says Stasia. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for families and Halloween enthusiasts to come together and enjoy a day of spooky fun and community spirit.”

With activities planned throughout the day, attendees are encouraged to come in costume and immerse themselves in the Halloween spirit.

Highlights of the event include:

  • Trick or treat trail for kids and families
  • Kids’ activities
  • Mini-haunt experience
  • Spooky market with more than 20 unique stallholders
  • Photo opportunities with spooky backdrops and roving scare actors
  • Costume and cosplay competitions with spot prizes
  • Expert-led DIY talks and demonstrations to create your own Halloween props
  • Show bags filled with festive goodies with profits donated to GO Foundation to support Indigenous youth
  • The South Australia Ghost Busters
  • Food trucks and so much more!

“Adelaide, and South Australia in general, has a very passionate and devoted Halloween community and we really wanted to present an event that embraced everything folks love about Halloween – fun, inclusivity, and of course, some scares,” Andrea says. “We also love that the Halloween market, which will feature more than 20 local vendors selling spooky and Halloween- themed products, gives back to the community by supporting local small businesses.”

To keep crowds at a minimum and fun at its peak, attendees can purchase a ticket for one of two sessions; morning (11.00am to 3.00pm) or afternoon (3.30pm to 7.30pm). A 30-minute session from 3.00pm has been allocated for those with sensory needs. This will be a quiet time for those who are easily overwhelmed but would like to take part in the trick or treat trail.
