The Official Halloween Guide for Orlando

About

You've found the home for The Halloween Guide for Central Florida and all things Fall fun!

I love Halloween and am always looking for new and fun things to do during the Halloween season. I have collected a variety of events to share with you. Many are here in Orlando but others are easily driveable from Orlando and totally worth checking out!

Currently the events are listed by starting date. Eventually I hope to have a searching tool to look at events by name as well as date. Stay tuned!

Here are some tips for attending events:
• Always check the main website for ticketing information, cost, dates and times as well as costume information and their official dos and don’ts for the event.
• Be early, have your tickets purchased if available.
• Let the event know you found them on Halloween Guide Orlando!

If you host a public Halloween/Fall event that we don't have listed or know of a great event that we don’t have it listed, or additional information is needed or needs to be updated about an event we do have listed, feel free to email info@halloweenguideorlando.com and we’ll add it to our page!

And fear not! I'll continue to list events that I think the Halloween lover will enjoy to keep you happy year round!

Let’s connect! Find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

Happy Halloween Season Everyone!

Visit & Shop: Coffee Shop of Horrors

From their website: 

"Quiver in fear at our variety of beans from around the world (our Latin American beans are Fair Trade)! Tremble in terror when you witness our plethora of flavored coffees! Scream in horror when confronted with our certified organic tea!

Based out of Orlando, Florida (and if Orlando doesn’t scare you, nothing will), we ship only the freshest coffee and tea across the US and Canada. We roast our beans to order and grind to your specifications if you desire, so you’ll always get the best tasting cup of java from our beans. We will sell nothing that’s over 30 days old. Anything older than that, we face the horror, and drink it ourselves, so that we can order in fresh for you! That’s the kind of sacrifice we’re willing to make for you.

So come on in and get your coffee and tea from us, before the thing sneaking up behind your back gets you! Eeek!"

Art of Quarantine @TheFalconBar The Falcon

Art of Quarantine @TheFalconBar The Falcon

Happening Saturday, November 27- January 15th


About this event: 
It might not be all spooky, creepy stuff but some of my favorite artists will have art on display! 


Quarantine has constrained us in so many ways. Our bodies are just cycling through the same three or four rooms in the house. We have been dealt seismic disruptions to our everyday life. Social distancing often feels more akin to social isolation. Yet, despite—or perhaps because of—the anxiety, panic, and fear we’re all grappling with, artists are driven to create.
The Falcon will be displaying art created during the quarantine. Instead of a one-night art opening, we will host an opening weekend to allow for staggered viewing.
So far artists include:
Chad Pollpeter
Eddie Beis
Jeff Wilfong
Mitch Scott
Scout Stowe
If interested in participating, then please email FalconBarArt@gmail.com.

The Krampus Run (Krampuslauf) is a 500-year old tradition that has become popular again in Germany in recent times where hundreds run through the streets dressed as Krampus. Sounds fun, right? Well, I hate running but I love inline skating, so let’s start our own tradition and do a Krampus Roll on the West Orange Trail!
Inline skates, quad skates, bikes whatever you’ll be comfortable rolling several miles at a casual to brisk pace on. All levels welcome, all wheels welcome.
Please dress appropriately for both the weather as well as the theme, including a facial covering. We want to be safe, stand out and let everyone know #wearekrampus
To be clear: Krampus costumes are not necessary but definitely welcome! Think more ugly holiday sweaters, Christmas attire with a darker twist...
Meet up at the station parking lot from 630 to 7, rolling out at 7!

Krampus Mini Sessions, Presented by Rachel Sullivan Photography

Krampus Mini Sessions, Presented by Rachel Sullivan Photography

Happening Saturday, December 12 from 6pm- 11pm

About the event:

You asked. You've begged. You've waited oh-so-patiently. And on Saturday, December 12th, your devotion shall be rewarded.
Ladies and gentlemen, Krampus is back.
That's right; Krampus is returning for an evening of portrait mini-sessions, snark, cracking wise, wooing the ladies, and questionable consistency in exactly what kind of accent he's going with moment to moment. (Austrian? German? Spanish? Minnesotan? Strongbadian? You'll have to attend to find out and see it for yourselves.)
This is a one-night only event with very limited availability. For now, we're just taking reservations to get people into the time slots of their choosing, and we'll worry about deposits and such later in the year once things are a wee bit less crazy.
$125 per session for groups of up to four people, which includes your session time, bar access, and your private password protected gallery on our website with 10-15 edited high resolution images and a print release. This event is for folks 18+ only (due to the nature, timing, and presentation of this event, no kiddos for this one, thanks!). Adult beverages will be provided for 21+, snark, whimsy, snacks, and photographic awesomeness will be provided for all. Want in? Choose your slot from the appointments in the pinned post below to reserve.
Krampusnacht...because we can't ALL make it onto the Nice List.

Rare Exports at Enzian

Rare Exports at Enzian

Happening Saturday, December 19 @ 12pm

About the movie: 
RARE EXPORTS
An Enzian Holiday Tradition!
It’s the eve of Christmas in northern Finland, and an ‘archeological’ dig has just unearthed the real Santa Claus. But this particular Santa isn’t the one you want coming to town. When the local children begin mysteriously disappearing, young Pietari and his father Rauno, a reindeer hunter by trade, capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the misguided leader of the multinational corporation sponsoring the dig. Santa’s elves, however, will stop at nothing to free their fearless leader from captivity. What ensues is a wildly humorous nightmare – a fantastically bizarre polemic on modern-day morality.

Watch the trailer: https://youtu.be/9RQlikX4vvw
