There’s only one place in Calgary where you can meet the haunted spirits of the past, have a ghostly good time, and take your little ones out for safe Halloween fun! Ghouls’ Night Out at Heritage Park is one of the city’s most beloved Halloween traditions and this year you’ll find loads of spooktacular new activities, spine-tingling street theatre, and monster meet-and-greets for all your family Halloween excitement.

Embrace your Halloween spirits – I mean, spirit – as Heritage Park is transformed to help your family enjoy freaky family fun! Ghouls’ Night Out, from October 27 – 29, 2023, is a memorable way to spend time together and it’s a terrific reason for the whole family to get dressed up. This event is geared toward families, so it’s not too spooky for young children, either. There’s also a new adult night offered in 2023!

Family Fun for Everyone

There is SO much going on at Ghouls’ Night Out, with old favourites and brand-new activities for 2023! Walk through the spooky Town of Calamity or visit the Monsters Retirement Home. Watch the street theatre performances and see The Further Adventures of Dr. Frankenstein and the Monster or A Pirate Captain’s Sword Fight Vignette.

Of course, there are tons of activities, crafts, and carnival games. Take a spooky stroll down the park’s well-decorated streets, meet the ghoulish residents of the village, and attend the Sanderson Sisters Flying Academy. And don’t forget to travel down the rabbit hole for a wonderfully weird tea party with Alice and her friends or try your hand at a monster-sized version of Operation! You can also meet a heckling scarecrow in the Pumpkin Patch and there are so many unique and atmospheric photo ops.

Eats and Treats

Every sweet tooth adores Halloween and Ghouls’ Night Out is ready for you! One of the activities kids love is decorating their own Halloween cookies (extra fee). Be sure to leave time to stop by all the shops for special sweets and treats, too.

Ghouls’ Night Out takes place mostly outdoors, so dress for the weather with warm layers, hats, and mittens (as well as your Halloween costume, of course!). Wear comfortable footwear and feel free to bring a stroller or wagon to help little ones get around, as there is a lot of ground to cover. There will be tons of photo opportunities to capture memories of your little ghouls and don’t forget to bring a flashlight to help you find your way once it gets dark!

Tickets to this wildly popular event are $19.95 for Old Spirits (anyone aged 16+) and $14.99 for Little Ghouls (aged 3 to 15). Children 2 and under get in free. But buy your tickets soon, because this event will only run for three nights and will likely sell out!

If you want to experience the nostalgia of Halloween, without worrying about sticky hands and bedtime, Ghouls’ Night Out is also offering an Adult Night this year! On October 26, 2023, plan a date night or escape with friends to enjoy the spooky season and have an opportunity to relax and play!

Start planning your costume and get ready for a ghoulish good time!
