Halloween Events in Reno This Month
Updated: Feb 16, 2019
1. Reno Fright Fest
Fright fest is at the Greater Nevada Field again this year. Reno Fright Fest is one of the most anticipated Haunted Houses in Northern Nevada every year. I have only been once, but I got so scared I have yet to go back!!!
Dates: October 6-9th, 13-16th, 20-23rd, 26th-31st
Open: Thursday through Saturday 7 – 11 pm
2. Ferrari Pumpkin Patch
The Ferrari Farm’s Pumpkin Patch is open through Halloween. There’s so much to do here, including a corn maze, bounce house, petting zoo, hay rides, a train ride and of course, plenty of pumpkins to buy for carving!!! In my opinion, there’s no better place to get your Halloween pumpkins then the pumpkin patch!
Dates: Everyday through October 31, 2016
Open: 9 am – 8 pm
3. The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event
From what I understand, after Slaughter House closes at Fright Fest, The Bawdy Caste is performing the Rocky Horror Picture Show outside. To get in, you need a Slaughter House ticket, but to watch the show it’s free. They also recommend you bring in your own chairs or blankets for seating is limited.
Dates: October 14, 2016
Open: 11 pm – 2 am
4. Wicked Little Wine Walk
The wine walk in October is themed Wicked, which makes me think everyone should dress as witches, but I haven’t actually seen that written down anywhere. But, hopefully it will have some Halloween flair to it!
Date: October 15, 2016
Open: 2 – 5 pm
5. Thriller at the Stadium
From what I understand, the goal of this event it to have 1,000 people all do the Thriller dance together. The dance is going to be at the Ace’s Stadium. You can learn how to do the dance on Friday nights at 7 pm and Saturdays at noon all month long until the event at Heart & Sole Dance Academy. Should be a hoot to watch!
Date: October 22
Open: 6 – 8 pm
6. Zombie Crawl
According to Facebook, Reno’s Zombie Crawl is one of the biggest in the world and has been named "Top 10 Costumed Halloween Parties in the US." Even though I am officially retiring from Crawl’s, the Zombie Crawl is still the best one of the year in my opinion. Dressing up all scary is really fun.
Date: October 22
Open: 7 pm
7. Wild Erotic Ball
Sponsored by Reno’s Wild 102.9, the Wild Erotic Ball is an annual dance party at the Eldorado Resort Casino. I’ve never been, but it seems like a good time! This is a 21+ event.
Date: October 28, 2016
8. Brews & Boos Beer Fest
The 2nd annual Nugget Casino Resort’s Brews & Boos Beer Festival is on October 29! This beer fest will offer "all-you-can-responsibly-drink" tastes of delicious brews from over 40 breweries, as event-goers enjoy live musical entertainment. There's also a costume contest!
Date: October 29, 2016
Open: 7 pm – 11 pm
9. Halloween Hollow
Halloween Hollow is a free event happening on October 29. It’s a trick-or-treat event where kids in costume receive a map and can go from store to store collecting candy along the Truckee River. They also are going to have games, entertainment and scary ghouls and ghosts around the River Walk District. Should be a lot of fun for little ones!
Date: October 29, 2016
Open: 5 pm – 7 pm
10. Visit Virginia City’s Hauntober Events
Virginia City is said to be one of the most haunted towns in the US. So of course they are putting on Halloween events! There are a bunch of activities going on up at Virginia City on Halloween, including:
Goblin Parade: at 5 pm, there’s a parade of goblins that you can sign up for! I’m fairly positive that the parade is for the little goblins in your life, as in children.
Safe Trick-or-Treat: Kids in costumes are invited to trick-or-treat along the different shops on C Street in Virigina City. Sign-ups are from 4:30 – 5 pm.
Cemetery Night Walk: from 6 – 11 pm the big cemetery in Virginia City is opening for one night. This is a creepy, very cool experience, especially since the cemetery normally is never open after sun-down.
Ghost Walking Tour: from 6 – 10 pm you can join the special Halloween Ghost Tour throughout the town.
Date: October 31, 2016
Open: Activities begin around 4 pm.
