It feels like two minutes ago, it was Labor Day. Now it’s time for things that go bump in the night and… WAIT…is that red and green decor I see taking over store aisles? We need to embrace the season before it passes in the blink of an eye. Dive into all things spooky with the following Halloween events in Pittsburgh.

‘Til Death Do Us Part-y Halloween Blowout

THIS IS RED, October 21
Step back in time to the sweet days of the 80s, if only for a few hours. Pair the bone-chilling tunes of the synth-soaked decade with drink options from Hidden Harbor, Golden Age Beer Co., Independent Brewing Co., and Lorelei. Don’t forget your spookiest costume!

Hellbender Ball

Thunderbird Cafe & Music Hall, October 21
Every year, local radio station WYEP celebrates Halloween with a tribute show. Here, Pittsburgh bands and musicians perform a set as famous artists or groups. This year’s lineup features String Machine as Lady Gaga, Nash.v.ill as Betty Davis, Chet Vincent and The Music Industry as George Harrison, Clara Kent as Erykah Badu, and Water Trash as The Doors.

Trick or Treat II

Coven Brewing, October 21
Calling all witches. Coven Brewing invites you to join their tribe for a Halloween block party on 49th Street featuring spooky eats from Streets on the Fly and special beer releases made just for the celebration. One of which is a collaboration with Pittsburgh Taco Boys that may turn you green with envy.

Halloween Make-&-Take Party

Protohaven, October 21
If you’re not the creative type, the idea of DIYing a gift may be more trick than treat, but tis the season to face our fears! Choose from four different family-friendly, make-and-take activities, leaving you with a boo-tiful made creation!

NonStop Broadway’s HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR Karaoke and Sing-Along

Hard Rock Cafe, October 24
