Things to do on Halloween in Atlanta

In Atlanta, there is never a shortage of Halloween activities. From haunted houses to festivals to face painting, there is something for everyone. Netherworld, one of the nation’s most revered haunted houses, resides in Atlanta, as does one of the most eclectic festivals: the Little Five Points Halloween Parade and Festival. If that isn’t enough, the thrills, spills, tumbles and turns of Fright Fest at Six Flags are enough to chill any visitor’s blood. The perfect activity for your Halloween season can be found many times over in Atlanta.

Little 5 Points Halloween Parade

The Little 5 Points Halloween Festival & Parade is one of the biggest Halloween events in the entire country. More than 35,000 people pack the city’s music, entertainment and art district for a parade as eclectic, captivating and chilling as any you’ll ever see.


Netherworld combines over-the-top special effects, intense makeup, unique monsters and incredible stunt actors for one of the most immersive haunted house experiences anywhere in the country. The innovative experience continues to grow and evolve on yearly basis.

Oakland Cemetery

The gates stay open after dark around Halloween at Oakland Cemetery. Hear from one of the legendary graveyard’s eternal residents as you gaze upon gorgeous candlelit mausoleums during the hour-long tour of Atlanta’s most illustrious final resting place.
