It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Halloween in Sleepy Hollow has something for everyone: haunted hayrides, Gothic mansions, blazing pumpkins, farmers markets, live music, street fairs, 5K run (costumes welcome!), Halloween parade, and of course, the Headless Horseman!
Venues usually announce October event schedules in August with ticket sales starting around September 1. The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze usually offers early sales to its members and sometimes opens pre-sales to followers of its social media accounts: Historic Hudson Valley's Instagram and Facebook.
Most October events sell out, especially weekend time slots. We strongly recommend you buy tickets before arriving.

We do our best to keep this calendar up-to-date, but to avoid disappointment you should contact establishments in advance to confirm hours of operation, rates, and availability.
Sleepy Hollow is a real place?
Yes! More than 200 years ago, author Washington Irving gave the name "Sleepy Hollow" to the valley of a local stream. The villages of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown are on the east bank of the Hudson River, about 15 miles north of New York City. It's easy to get here by car or train.
