Scare In The Square - A Frightfully Fun Festival!

Scare In The Square - A Frightfully Fun Festival!

Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls, OH MY! In downtown Brantford, we take Halloween pretty seriously.  So seriously, in fact, that we dedicate a whole weekend in October, where we turn downtown Harmony Square into a frightful Halloween festival!  Scare in the Square is an all ages, family friendly event for Halloween enthusiasts, children, teenagers, adults - well, anyone who enjoys candy and a good fright!  

This year's 11th annual fall-themed festival takes place on Friday October 5th from 5:00-9:00pm & Saturday October 6th from 12:00-10:00pm, in Harmony Square (89 Dalhousie St, Brantford, ON). Mark your calendar, create your costume, and get ready for a fearfully fun time!
