40+ Top Halloween Events for Philly Kids in 2020

If Halloween isn't spooky enough, this year Philly parents have the frightful task of searching for safe ways to entertain little ghosts, witches, superheroes, and princesses in the midst of a pandemic. But Philly moms and dads need not fear!

Mommy Poppins Philadelphia has rounded up the best Halloween activities and events happening throughout the Delaware Valley. From pumpkin decorating and candy collecting for young ones to super scary experiences to chill tweens and teens to the bone, our event calendar is constantly being updated with new ways to spend this spooky season.

Most venues are requiring guests to wear face coverings as well as to follow social distancing guidelines. To limit capacity, advanced ticket purchase or reservations are generally required. So get into the spirit by browsing our list and incorporating some Halloween fun into your fall.
