The Best Halloween Events


South Africa’s getting back into her stride just in time for the festive season. Make the most of it with the exciting events in Cape Town.

Halloween isn’t a major event in South Africa. Yet, this is no ordinary year, so why not try something different with these top offerings from some of Cape Town’s top venues?

12 Apostles Murder Mystery Night – 30 October

D’Aria Winery Trail Run – 31 October

Take on a challenge of a trail run with obstacles while dressed in your Halloween finery. You can choose between a 5km or a 10km route, and the obstacles are optional.

You stand in line to win a prize for your creative outfit efforts and all finishers get a medal to commemorate this exciting occasion.

Afterwards you can spoil yourself by buying a bottle of wine from the cellar to celebrate with friends.

Go in Search of Sea Monsters

Seriously, Cape Town’s beaches and oceans are devoid of anything malevolent, but we can pretend this Halloween.

MCQP and Cape Circuit Collective invite the truly imaginative to help them in their search for the best-dressed sea monster this October on board a luxury catamaran in Table Bay.

Some of the fun that’s on the cards includes unlimited monster mashing, top DJs, and Go-Go dancers.

Don’t miss the boat, tickets are limited for this exclusive event, and you can book online with Waterfront Charters.
