Once the leaves start falling in Chicago, the vampires, witches, and zombies aren’t far behind. Halloween in Chicago is considered a festive and series of events filled with freaky parties and haunted houses. The Autobarn Volkswagen of Countryside loves to get into the Halloween spirit as well! Bring the kids by the dealership for some candy, and remember to service your car before heading out so you don’t end up stuck on the side of the road like some sort of bad Halloween movie. These are the best Halloween events in Chicago!


Basement of the Dead

Renowned for being considered as one of the best haunted houses in the Countryside area, Basement of the Dead is worth the quick drive to Aurora. Be prepared for killer clowns, bloodthirsty zombies, dead nuns and other creatures of the night! Also at the venue is the Stabbin Cabin Escape Experience and the Zombie Carnival Midway Games. Both are a blast!

Pier Pumpkin Lights

Pier Pumpkin Lights is a month long family-friendly attraction’s featuring over 1,000 lights on the Navy Pier. If you’re in the Chicago area, drop by Polk Bros Park to see the Juggernaut of Jack-O-Lanterns installation then head over to the pier to take in more pop-up experiences, all of which are illuminated after dusk each evening. Your favorite Navy Pier restaurants, like Bubba Gump Shrimp Co, provide food and drink specials and Amazing Chicago’s Funhouse Maze is transformed into a scary haunted maze on select weekends. It’s also the best place to take the kids for trick-or-treating in the LaGrange area!

Arts in the Dark

Known as a signature event of the season and one of the best things to do in Chicago for Halloween, the Arts in the Dark parade, features performers, puppets, bands, and floats marching through the streets of Chicago. Famous local artists make most of the costumes and props. Onlookers love the creativity and festivities, and it’s a perfect family-friendly event. The procession begins at State Street and Lake Street and moves south to Van Buren.
