Saturday, October 21, 4-8pm
downtown Harrisonburg

This event blends aspects of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos in a big, community celebration. Activities kick off with trick-or-treating at downtown businesses and culminate with a fun, all-ages party at the Turner Pavilion & Park. The festival features kid, dog, and adult costume contests; music; food trucks; a community ofrenda; “trunk or treating”; wacky shacks, goober blobs and whisker biscuits and more!

Pick up a Candy Map at the Visitor Center in the Hardesty Higgins House, 212 S. Main Street, between 9am-4pm to see the list of trick-or-treat locations and look for the orange balloons outside of participating businesses!
