Pack in the Fun with a Full Calendar of Events this Halloween!

We know we might be a little bias, but we think our Grand County small towns really do Halloween right. From Granby's Main Street Trick-or-Treat to Winter Park's Halloween Bash at Cooper Creek Square to trick-or-treating in Old Town Fraser, the energy is palpable, and the events just keep coming. If you're in the mountains for the holiday this year, there is definitely no shortage of family fun. So mark your calendars, costume up, and hit the town mountain-style for Halloween this year! 


Friday, October 27: 4-6pm

Kick off Halloween weekend with a family-favorite evening of trick-or-treating in the heart of Granby. Businesses up and down Main Street will be ready for trick or treaters! The Visitor's Center is always the hub of the action, with snacks and a photo booth welcoming your crew for Halloween fun! And be sure to dress for the occasion -you never know what Grand County weather will bring in the fall. It's not uncommon for Halloween costumes to be complemented with puffy jackets and beanies. So bundle up and hit the "Main" street. We love the small-town vibe of this annual event - it's a true picture of our beautiful community as we come together to celebrate. 


Saturday, October 28: 2pm

After enjoying Main Street trick-or-treating in Granby, you can sleep in a little Saturday morning before suiting up again for more festivities. The Church of the Eternal Hills in Tabernash hosts its annual trunk-or-treat right after lunch. Swing by to see what each elaborately-themed trunk has to offer. Kids always love this free, fun event, and it's an easy stop on your way to a mountain adventure or your next Halloween party! 


Saturday, October 28: 4-6pm

We'll be ready for you at our West + Main Grand County office on the second floor of Cooper Creek Square during this year's Halloween Bash! Stop by for some candy, a drink, and to say hi as you make the rounds with your kiddos (or let them make the rounds while you hang out with us!). We always love this local-favorite event, and having an office in the heart of it makes it even better. The businesses in Cooper Creek go big for the event every year, with a seemingly endless flow of candy ready for trick-or-treaters in the intimate, safe environment right in downtown Winter Park. And the spooky photo booth and DJ dance party just add to the energy! After the treat bags are full and the last song plays, it's easy to grab dinner at one of Cooper Creek's restaurants. 


Sunday, October 29: 1-3:30pm

Celebrate the spooky season at Pioneer Village Museum in Hot Sulphur Springs. Trick or treat around the museum grounds and make a Halloween-themed craft before heading out to see the town parade. The event is hosted by the Grand County Historical Association and is free to the community - all ages are welcome!


Tuesday, October 31: 5-7pm

If you're looking for that door-to-door trick-or-treating experience, our go-to is the Old Town Fraser neighborhood. Just to the west of Highway 40 in the heart of Fraser, the houses in this quaint little Fraser neighborhood always go big for Halloween. And they always celebrate on Halloween proper, so you can wrap up your holiday weekend by spending October 31st cruising the neighborhood, ringing doorbells, collecting candy, and checking out the over-the-top decorations. We recognize that our expansive, rural community doesn't necessarily lend itself to the neighborhood trick-or-treating you might find in the suburbs, but we think our little downtown Fraser celebration makes trick-or-treating a memorable experience for all!


Tuesday, October 31: 4:30-7:30PM

Granby loves to celebrate holidays! From the free community Easter egg hunt to a visit from Santa and his reindeer at Christmas, the museum prides itself on being a place where the community can gather. On Halloween night, the 1905 Passenger Coach transforms into a spooky, creaky railcar, complete with ghouls and goblins. The haunted train is designed for brave 5 year olds and up, but trick or treating is available for all ages throughout the museum's grounds. Cost is $2 per person.


We hope to see you around town this Halloween! And if all the small-town festivities make it all the more clear that you want to put down roots and call this beautiful community home for the long-term, we're here for you! We'd love to connect and help you find the property you're looking for! Happy Halloween!
