Who doesn’t love the Manly Halloween Street Party?! It’s an event that shuts down the Manly foreshore for one night of spook-tacular family fun! Unfortunately, Manly Harbour Village who coordinate the Manly Halloween Street party have confirmed the event WILL NOT be going ahead in 2021. Read on for their official announcement:

It brings us no joy to advise that the organisers will not be progressing with the annual MHV Halloween Street Party as advised by QLD health to ensure the safety of our community. As much as we have missed the festive spirit of this event, we understand and support this decision as the best for our community.
While we are very disappointed the Manly Halloween Street Party is cancelled for 2021, we do have a heap of other TRULY TERRIFYING ideas for spooky Brisbane kids (and their grownups). 

So there you go, your Halloween Brisbane is not doomed! Check out some of the other great Halloween activities around Brisbane and you just might find a new favourite Halloween haunt!

Get set to get spooky! Brisbane’s BIGGEST Halloween celebration is BACK! Manly Halloween Street Party is the place to be!

This year’s spook-tastic celebrations will happen on SATURDAY 26th OCTOBER from 11am to 9pm!

The event, which always draws crowds in the tens of thousands, is FREE. It’s a family friendly and alcohol-free community event. Get spooky with non-stop entertainment on two different stages – culminating in the world famous Halloween Parade!

There’ll be all day entertainment with music and roving performers. A variety of art and craft and curiousity markets as well as Eat Street Harbourside. There’ll also be enough on water entertainment to keep everyone entertained all day! Families tip: You may want to catch public transport or figure out some ride sharing. This event can be BUSY and the side streets can be absolutely choked with parked cars.

Manly Halloween Street Party

This is an absolute highlight on the bayside events calendar when thousands flock to the beautiful area to partake in a freaky-fun festival!

Make sure you are aware of nearby parking signs and restrictions and avoid parking over anyone’s driveway. (That might end up in a TRICK rather than a treat!) There are plenty of food and drink stalls at the festival but make sure you keep the waterways clean by disposing of your rubbish thoughtfully or taking it with you.

See you there! Mwhahahahaha!
