Halloween events in Atlanta aren’t just for kids. Here are the five most transit-friendly Atlanta events and parties if you’re ghosting around town without a car. If you plan to be out past 1 a.m., catch a ride with Uber or Lyft — use promo code MARTAGuide if you’re new to Uber to get $20 off your first ride. Have fun and be safe!
1. Little 5 Points Halloween Parade and Festival
The best pre-Halloween event in Atlanta, the Little 5 Points Halloween Parade and Festival is full of fun and debauchery. After the ghoulishly impressive parade, head into the heart of Little 5 for an artist market, music stages and plenty of bars and restaurants for showing off your costume (or just watching people in theirs).
2. Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Cemetery Halloween Tours
Great for the whole family, the evening Halloween tours of Oakland Cemetery are a spooky way to celebrate the season. Advanced ticket purchase is required due to the popularity of the event, going on sale in early September. The 2017 tickets are sold out.
3. Walker Stalker Con
A convention weekend full of zombies, horror and sci-fi, the yearly Walker Stalker Con at the Georgia World Congress Center has celebrities, panels and an indoor trick-or-treat on Sunday.
4. Nightmare on 13th Street
Get your party on at Nightmare on 13th Street, the annual big bash at CosmoLava on Saturday night. There’s a costume contest, food trucks, games, plenty of drinks and multiple DJ’s and dance floors. Use the Midtown or Arts Center MARTA station to reach all the fun.
5. Boos and Brews
Boos and Brews is the beer-lovers Halloween party at Center Stage near the Arts Center MARTA station. Event tickets include drinks, live music, DJs and a costume contest. Choose the “beer lovers” ticket for free beer samples throughout the night.
