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., you’ll need to find an alternate way home, such as with Uber or Lyft. Otherwise, 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 on October 19, 2019. 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. Ghost 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, and tickets go on sale in the summer and usually sell out before October.
You can also check out the Decatur Ghost Tours that start above the Decatur MARTA station as another option. For extra fun, attend a tour on the the same day as the Decatur Haints and Saints Halloween Parade on the Sunday before Halloween.
3. Walker Stalker Con
A convention weekend full of zombies, horror and sci-fi, the yearly October Walker Stalker Con at the Georgia World Congress Center has celebrities, panels and photo/autograph opportunities. Be sure to check out the Scream Like the ’90s after party in the Omni Hotel on Oct. 19, 2019 (live music courtesy of Saved by the Band).
4. Trick or Drink
Enjoy a Halloween bar crawl in Midtown on the Saturday before Halloween and on Oct. 31. Participating bars include Cypress Street Pint & Plate, Fado Irish Pub and Taco Mac Midtown. Take a red or gold line train to the Midtown MARTA station to join the fun. Check in is at Taco Maco, 933 Peachtree NE.
5. The Punkin’ Fuppet Show
Bar crawls not your thing? Then you don’t want to miss the Punkin’ Fuppet Show at Village Theatre on the Saturday before Halloween. It’s a super short walk from the King Memorial MARTA station for laughs, creativity and audience games.
