Bozeman Halloween Events
Make the final touches to your costume before checking out what Bozeman has to offer this Halloween. Whether you’re looking for a place to go trick-or-treating with the kids, grab drinks with friends, or catch some live music there’s something for everyone! We hope to see some of you downtown looking your spookiest! Here at Montana Gift Corral we’ve put together some of the best events for your Halloween.
Instead of going door-to-door, try going store-to-store! Downtown Bozeman will have over 150 businesses with candy and Halloween decorations from 4pm to 6pm on Thursday, October 31st. Looking for something indoors tomorrow night? Check out the Gallatin Valley Mall for their Malloween event from 5pm to 7pm where you can get free professional family photos, meet Montana State’s mascot Champ, and, of course, get candy from participating retailers. Another great option for folks looking to stay inside is Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital’s Haunted Hallway from 3pm to 5pm. Park in lot C at the hospital and enjoy this all ages event with candy and non-food treats. If you plan it just right, you can fill your candy bucket at all three of these Bozeman events!
Looking for a little excitement this Halloween? Head over to the Fairgrounds Indoor Arena for the Harvest Carnival. The Gallatin County Fairgrounds and Fellowship Baptist Church teamed up to bring you a free night of prizes, candy, games, and food. This is a great event for the whole family to enjoy. The Harvest Carnival is a night to benefit the Haven Shelter and, for those that are able, donations of Gas Cards and cleaning supplies are encouraged and greatly appreciated. Have a great time and support a great cause in our community!
Movie and Music
If you’re looking for something a little less family-oriented, Bozeman can definitely provide. Plonk is hosting a dinner and a movie event; for $60 you’ll get a 3 course dinner and a Verge Theater production of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. The first showing is at 6pm and the second starts at 8:30, but seating is limited, so act fast on this fun Bozeman tradition.
If you’re looking to hear some music on Halloween, head to the Filling Station. Dead Sky will be celebrating HalloWEEN: a tribute to Ween on the 31st and Day of the Dead: a tribute to the Grateful Dead on November 1st. Tickets are $9 in advance and $12 at the door.
If you’re idea of Halloween isn’t kids dressed in cute outfits in various stages of a sugar high and consequent sugar crash, head downtown AFTER trick-or-treating. All the bars downtown are sure to be prepared for a big night this Halloween. Check out the Bacchus Halloween Bash where there will be hourly prizes, a costume contest, drink specials, and DJ Missy O’Malley.
Whatever you end up doing this Halloween, have fun and be safe!
