Halloween Events in Charlotte!

A Story By

Boo! Bet we just got your attention…If you couldn’t tell by our introduction, we’re busy planning for Halloween here in Charlotte. We can hardly contain our excitement that it’s almost time for one of our favorite Holidays. 

If you’re like us, you’ve already have you Halloween costume figured out for months now. So to help y’all with your plans we’ve pulled some of the best Halloween events that we think y’all need to know about.

From bar crawls to family-friendly frights, there’s bound to be something for everyone of all ages this Halloween season! 

19 YEARS!? Woah Rich & Bennett must be doing something right… 

For those of y’all who are not familiar with Rich & Bennett, they’re behind some of the largest bar crawls in all of Charlotte including their annual St. Paddy’s Crawl and Americrawl. Thousands of people show up for their crawls each year.

They are always a guaranteed good time, that’s for sure. Their Halloween Bar Crawl will take place on October 26th this year from 1PM until 10PM. 

They are planning on having over 20 different bars participating in this year’s crawl. Each bar will have different drink specials–we can already feel our hangover. 

There will also be swag, giveaways and of course a costume contest. So if you are vying to win that contest we suggest starting to plan that costume.

Tickets are currently on sale and will increase as the event gets closer so we suggest getting yours ASAP!

Charlotte’s LARGEST Halloween party is back!

The biggest event to takeover Charlotte has gotten even better this year because DIPLO is performing. Not only is this an epic music concert it’s also a costume party.

There will be $10,000 in cash and prizes offered throughout the night. That’s a LOT of money to win just in one night. There will be three separate categories; Sexiest, Group, and Best. So that’s three chances to win big!

This is also an all-ages show and will go on rain or shine!

Each September and October, the Carolina’s favorite theme park is transformed into your worst nightmare…

When the night time falls, Carowinds goes from being an ordinary theme park to a scream park! All your favorite rides will be open PLUS haunted houses and terrifying shows. 

Our favorite attraction? The haunted mazes. Imagine having to navigate your way through the darkness with terrifying creatures popping out at every corner. We’re having chills just thinking about it.

If you’re a Halloween fanatic and haven’t been to a SCarowinds yet, you’re surely missing out.

Admission starts at $32 if you purchase your ticket online–which we HIGHLY suggest doing.
