Avoiding Halloween in Vancouver is a tough act. The Vancouver Halloween events start early, with the Parade of Lost Souls kicking things off about a week before the holiday. The annual parade celebrates the full circle of life and death, featuring shrines to celebrate lives lived and lost. Also, The Great Big Boo is a 10-day theater event with dynamic dancing and musical performances, appropriate for kids and those who haven’t trick-or-treated in years. From Spooktacular Skating to Boo-A-Thons, the city’s stocked with various Halloween-themed events that prepare partygoers for wild festivities at some of the best Halloween nightlife events available.
Something Wicked has been leading the Halloween party full-force for a decade now. Hosted at Celebrities Nightclub, its mad-scientist, medical-fetish theme isn’t required, but the fact that most guests choose to go all-out is why it’s become one of the most legendary Halloween parties around. Sanctuary’s the kind of club where people seem to dress up every night, so its Halloween parties take it to a whole new level. It usually hosts three Halloween nightlife events so be on the lookout for a full weekend of partying.
Fetish Halloween has become one of the craziest Halloween nightclub events, offering huge costume prizes, including on-the-spot tattoos and piercing. It features fetish shows, some of the best DJs and fetish vendors, which have given it a reputation for bringing out sides in guests most of them didn’t know they had.
You don’t have to attend one of these all-out parties to celebrate. Vancouver’s full of enough Halloween parties, Halloween nightlife events and Halloween masquerades to keep everyone entertained. However, the people of Vancouver do like to take their themes seriously, so be on the look-out for events so intense, they’re a little spookier than your average goblin or ghoul.
