Paisley Halloween Festival
October 26, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Get ready for Halloween in Paisley, where gothic creatures and macabre masterpieces await… We’re looking forward to welcoming you back this year for a new and improved experience.
Paisley Halloween Festival is one of the biggest and best of its kind in the UK and this year has the theme of ‘Gothic Halloween’. As always, it’s free to attend.
We’re back this year with a new format. Paisley town centre will be transformed into a Halloween playground, set against the spectacular backdrop of Paisley’s historic Abbey, with TWO ZONES created this year.
Halloween Trail Zone
Enter via the haunted gates to explore Frank & McSteins Fire Show, Spooky Bat Cave and Raven’s Realm. Set beneath the atmospheric Abbey, the trail will weave its way from Cotton Street to Abbey Close.
There will be a one-way system operating in this zone. Please note there will be a queue to access the trail. This is to ensure everyone has a great chance to experience the trail.
Live Performance Zones
Here you can expect street theatrics from festival-favourites Spark! LED Drummers and Pyroceltica. Plus sword-swallowing, stilt-walkers and community music and dance performances.
Thrilling aerial acrobatic performances from All or Nothing’s flying vampires, as well as marshmallow pits, haunted funfair and devilishly-tasty street food. And keep your ears open for an eery surprise from the spires of the Town Hall…
When: 26 – 28 Oct
Time: 5pm – 9pm
