Young ghosts and goblins should be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other adult and wear light-colored costumes and clothing for safety. South Main Street will be closed to traffic during the event. Off-duty police officers will be stationed at some street intersections to direct traffic. No pets, please.  Safety notice: An Information/Lost Child Station will be located at the intersection of South Main and Academy Streets. The Winston-Salem Police Department encourages parents to take a photo of their children in the costume that they will be wearing that evening and have that photo available on their phone, in the event their child gets lost at the event. This will greatly help police in their search for the child.

The streets and sidewalks in the historic district are made of stone and bricks, so please be aware of uneven surfaces when walking, especially at night.  Flashlights are recommended. Off-duty police officers will barricade South Main and intersecting streets for the event and help direct traffic.

This event is FREE and requires no ticket. This event may be cancelled due to inclement weather, check the website and our Facebook page for updates beforehand.

Complimentary parking at the Old Salem Visitor Center (900 Old Salem Road) as well as the city’s Church Street Parking Deck in the numbered spaces (155 N. Church Street).
