A festive celebration of Halloween and fall in New England, more than 50,000 people come to Salem Haunted Happenings each year. Events include a Grand Parade, the Haunted Biz Baz Street Fair, Wicked Wednesdays family fun, Film nights on Salem Common, costume balls, ghost tours, haunted houses, live music, and chilling theatrical presentations.
New and notable in 2019, the Fountain Stage that spent nearly 20 years on Essex Street will begin a new chapter at the City's new Charlotte Forten Park at 289 Derby Street. Live music, free family films, and a beer garden will be among the featured programs at this beautiful new public space along the South River. Also new for 2019 is the Salem Halloween Museum at 131 Essex Street. This 3-D experience will take visitors on a fun trip down memory lane to learn the history of Halloween and some of its favorite traditions.
