Few dates of the year garner as much attention as Halloween in Whistler followed closely by Australia Day and New Years. The snow hasn’t yet fallen (well, maybe just a little!), and people are chomping at the bit for a night of some good fun to liven up fall before the snow starts officially flying. From themed costume parties at the clubs to quaint neighborhood events and trick-or-treating for families, there’s something for everyone.

Where to Find Costumes:

First, you’ll need a costume! Whistler locals have plenty of time in October to find or create the perfect costume, and you would be wise to do the same. You wouldn’t want to be that person who makes a half-hearted attempt to feign a costume by throwing on a pair of cat ears or a pirate’s hat, would you?

The best costumes are the ones that you make yourself with a little bit of creativity and craftiness. Odds and ends can be found at the Whistler Re-use-It Centre, Whistler Hardware store, or other general stores around town. Seasonally the Gibbons Hub located in the Westin also stocks Halloween related tidbits that are certain to amplify things to the next level. Be sure to swing by Velvet Underground for any vintage or retro-inspired costumes, this local spot in Function Junction is a gem.

Match your costume to the theme or dare to be different either way, dress to impress!

For Families:

Halloween at Tapley’s Farm: On the eve, this Whistler neighborhood near Tapley’s Farm is transformed into a trick-or-treaters paradise for families. Located on Easy Street, this neighborhood goes all out with decorations and treats, and the road is closed from 5 pm onwards for families and young trick-or-treaters to fill their candy bags to the brim. There is a free shuttle from the Whistler Marketplace between 5 and 9 pm, and the evening ends with a fireworks celebration.
