Free Halloween Events in SLC



Halloween can be a surprisingly expensive holiday, but it doesn't have to be. There are plenty of fun, free Halloween events for the whole family in Salt Lake City and surrounding areas.

Gardner Village Witch Display and Scavenger Hunt

It's free to look at Gardner Village's bigger-than-life-size witches, and kids 12 and younger can complete a witch scavenger hunt and receive a chocolate chip cookie at Neighborhood Bakery for only 35 cents.

Creep Factor: Mild, though the life-size witches are scary for sensitive children.
