The Best Places to Go Trick-or-Treating in Vancouver

The tradition of trick-or-treating on Halloween is very popular with young children in Vancouver. But some neighborhoods are better to visit than others. Here’s our guide to the best places to go trick-or-treating in the area.


For the past 15 years, the Yaletown Business Improvement Association and Roundhouse Community Centre have organized a Trick-or-Treat Route through the inner city neighborhood. Children can visit Yaletown businesses to pick up candy from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Halloween, before attending the Annual Halloween Carnival at the Exhibition Hall. Route maps are available at the Roundhouse Community Centre beforehand.
The annual carnival includes games, crafts, activities, candy, and a “Ghoulish Graveyard.” It’s a real “treat” for children living in Yaletown and downtown Vancouver, as this area of the city is home to many secure apartment complexes, which makes trick-or-treating difficult.

Kerrisdale is a residential neighborhood south of the city. Thanks to the lack of skyscrapers and apartment buildings lining the streets, Kerrisdale is a great place to go trick-or-treating. It’s recommended that families visit the houses located off West Boulevard, between 33rd and 49th Streets.

Trinity Street

Trinity Street is no doubt the most popular street to visit for trick-or-treating every Halloween. Two blocks of the street (between N Slocan and N Renfrew Streets) are known by locals for their impressive Christmas light displays during the holidays. Fortunately, this isn’t the only time that the street celebrates and heavily decorates. Trinity Street welcomes all trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Indeed, in the past, some residents handed out candy to 800 kids in costumes.

Halloween decorations


The previously mentioned Trinity Street hot spot lies in the residential neighborhood of Hastings-Sunrise. Although it’s the best street in the community to visit, many houses in the area are ready and waiting for trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Try any street located between Nanaimo and Renfrew Streets (vertical), and Hastings and Broadway Streets (horizontal).

Located underneath Hastings-Sunrise in eastern Vancouver, Renfrew-Collingwood is another excellent residential neighborhood to visit. There are many decorated houses between Nanaimo Street and Boundary Road (similar to above), and Grandview Highway and Kingsway.

Ready for Halloween

Kids Market

Usually held on the Sunday before Halloween, Kids Market on Granville Island holds an event called Halloweenie. Children can trick-or-treat in all of the market’s stores. They can also receive a free hot dog if dressed in their Halloween costume.

City Square Shopping Centre

Held on the Saturday before Halloween, City Square Shopping Centre in Mount Pleasant hosts an annual Halloween Hunt. Kids can trick-or-treat at participating retailers, complete their Halloween Hunt maps to win prizes, watch magic shows, get their face painted, and decorate cookies. A donation is required (minimum $2) to participate in the cookie decoration activity, but all proceeds go to the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
City Square, Suite 168 – 555 W 12th Avenue, Vancouver, BC, Canada

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
