Come in costume to explore the Haunted High Line on Saturday, October 29, where ghost trains loom, hero cowboys rule, and child activists help to change their city.

Meet ghosts from the West Side's industrial past, create frightful art in the Deadly Soapbox, explore a haunted park designed by Superhero Clubhouse, and break out your best moves with Dance Adventure and Child Protestors. There will be food, music, and more!

Here are five fun reasons to come to Haunted High Line!

UPDATE: Haunted High Line advance RSVP tickets are sold out. For those who have RSVP'd, please note that we cannot guarantee admittance since event spaces on the High Line are limited by capacity. Therefore, entrance to events, even with an RSVP, is on a first-come, first-served basis until we reach capacity.

If by chance there is space available on the day of the event, there will be an opportunity to register on-site. Admittance, however, cannot be guaranteed.
