Fall is one of the greatest seasons in Ohio, with cooler weather and so much to do. There are over 50 events celebrating fall and Halloween in Columbus for 2021! There’s no shortage of fun, fall festivals, pumpkins, and spooky (or silly) Halloween events.
You’ll find pumpkin patches, scary movies, food festivals, Halloween parties, trick-or-treat activities, events for kids, and events for adults! Trick or Treat, or Beggar’s Night, is scheduled on Halloween for most communities around Central Ohio; check out the 2021 Trick or Treat schedule here. There are community events with trick or treating or trunk or treating for safer (and daytime) alternatives to Beggar’s Night. If you don’t know what to dress up as for all of these Halloween events, check out these 100 Cheap and Easy DIY Halloween Costumes.
Don’t forget – there are plenty of places to eat free or cheap on Halloween. These will be updated closer to Halloween when the deals are released.
More will be coming as Halloween event details are released. If you know of any other events that should be featured, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are accepting business or event sponsorship ads for this page; please contact email@example.com if you are interested.
With lots of changes for gatherings and events, we are updating this page as quickly as we can. We’ll add the confirmed events in this section until we have verified more of the offerings.
