Halloween Events in Buffalo for Kids – 2020 Edition

Halloween events in Buffalo 2020

Halloween events in Buffalo have been popping up on the calendar all week!  It’s great to see the calendar come back to life after so many months without anything going on around town.  That said, while there are a lot of Halloween events in WNY, many of them look at little different than in years past.

With COVID-19 still looming, many of these events have been “reimagined” and reworked to be safe for social distancing so there may be capacity restrictions.  While we’ve made every effort to provide complete, up to date information, before you gather your little ghosts and goblins and head out, please check the event’s website and/or call them to confirm details.

Recurring Events Happening Throughout the Month

The following is a list of Halloween events in Buffalo that are happening multiple times throughout the month.  Please check the event details for specifics.

  • Craft and Carry with Kenilworth Branch Library – Monster Magnets – Free take home crafting kits for kids ages 5 – 10.  This month features Monster Magnets.
