For its sixth year, Old Salem Museums & Gardens will host its popular trick-or-treating event! Children can trick-or-treat at the doors of the historic buildings along Main Street between Salem Square (600 South Main Street) and the Frank L. Horton Museum Center (924 South Main Street) from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  Volunteers will be stationed at the doors of the historic buildings, giving out candy while the supply lasts. Some Old Salem residents will also be participating.

Young ghosts and goblins should be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other adult and wear light-colored costumes and clothing for safety. South Main Street will be closed to traffic during the event. Off-duty police officers will be stationed at some street intersections to direct traffic. No pets, please.

The streets and sidewalks in the historic district are made of stone and bricks, so please be aware of uneven surfaces when walking, especially at night.  Flashlights are recommended. Off-duty police officers will barricade South Main and intersecting streets for the event and help direct traffic.

This event is FREE and requires no ticket.

Free parking available at the Old Salem Visitor Center (900 Old Salem Road) as well as the city’s Church Street Parking Deck in the numbered spaces (155 N. Church Street).
