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!

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!"

RELIC at Enzian

RELIC at Enzian

About the movie: 
When elderly mother Edna (Robyn Nevin) inexplicably vanishes, her daughter Kay (Emily Mortimer) and granddaughter Sam (Bella Heathcote) rush to their family’s decaying country home, finding clues of her increasing dementia scattered around the house in her absence. After Edna returns just as mysteriously as she disappeared, Kay’s concern that her mother seems unwilling or unable to say where she’s been clashes with Sam’s unabashed enthusiasm to have her grandma back. As Edna’s behavior turns increasingly volatile, both begin to sense that an insidious presence in the house might be taking control of her. With RELIC, first-time writer/director Natalie Erika James crafts an unforgettable new spin on the haunted-house movie.
