Voted best Halloween destination in the world in the world by USA Today 2015. The world famous Halloween carnival returns to Derry City and Strabane District this October with a bigger and even busier programme of events than ever before. Engage your creative side, show off a crazy costume and join us for the scariest night of the year in Northern Ireland.
The Halloween parade is the biggest in Europe, making Derry the ideal destination for Halloween enthusiasts.
We should warn you however; the crazy costumes that pass through the City at this time of the year are not for the faint-hearted! Don’t miss the explosive fireworks finale on the 31st – considered a highlight among both locals and visitors to the City at this time of year.
Halloween is also the perfect time of the year to visit Derry’s best historical attractions – such as a stroll along the freakishly famous City walls, or a visit to the Neo-Gothic Guildhall.
