Event MAP

Children’s Halloween Party
Taos Historic District (Taos Plaza, Teresina Lane, Juan Largo Lane, John Dunn Shops, and Bent Street) from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Teen Costume Dance Party with DJ
Taos Plaza, 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

The Town of Taos Community Events, Taos Plaza Merchants, Teresina Lane Merchants, Juan Largo Lane Merchants, John Dunn Shops, Bent Street Merchants, Taos Milagro Rotary Club and Rocky Mountain Youth Corps are hosting a huge Children's Halloween event for children of all ages and their families.

On Wednesday, October 31, 2018, from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM, the ghoulish fun will be spilled out from the Taos Plaza over to Teresina Lane, to Juan Largo Lane, slithering its way to the John Dunn Shops and Bent Street.  The event will provide the children of Taos with a fun, safe, supervised Halloween Event. 

Merchants from all around the Taos Historic District (Taos Plaza, Teresina Lane, Juan Largo Lane, John Dunn Shops and Bent Street) will be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters.  Local businesses, organizations and church groups will provide decorated “trunks” full of treats for trick-or-treating and various carnival games with prizes. 

We are excited to be hosting the annual costume contest for children ages 1 to 12 year old, families and pets.  The teens will have an opportunity to win a prize during the Teen Costume Dance Party from 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM.  Prizes will be awarded to the child, family or pet with the Best Costumes.  Judges will be roaming throughout the event from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM.  No registration needed.  This will allow everyone attending the event a chance to be part of the contest.  The judges will be wearing a sash labeled “Costume Judge” and will award the winners.  
We will also be giving out Halloween bags filled with treats and goodies to the first 1,000 children.

Taos Plaza and Bent Street will be closed from 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM; however, the Taos Plaza Merchants and Bent Street Merchants will be open to foot traffic. FREE event parking will be available at our Lady of Guadalupe Church, Loretto Parking Lot, Town Hall, and Taos Public Library. AFTER 5:00 PM all metered parking lots will be free. For handicapped parking and for people requiring ADA access to the event, there will be extra parking at Guadalupe Parking Lot and the area next to the McCarthy Parking Lot directly behind the old County Courthouse. 

Every year the community event keeps growing in attendees, games and “trunks”.  Judy Esquibel, Town of Taos Community Events Coordinator, Would like to thank everyone participating in this wonderful Halloween event so successful for the children and families of our Taos Community.  This event is made possible because of all the numerous volunteers, staff, judges, security, merchants, business owners, organizations and sponsors that help put it together.  We are a team working together to bring the community a fun, safe, and supervised Halloween event. 

Thank you everyone again for making Halloween this year a Halloween to remember!
