Get Spooky - Rhode Island and Block Island Halloween Events

by Will / October, 22 2014 01:30

Halloween is one of my favorite times of year.  As a kid it was all about candy, candy, candy.  As an adult I can't say much has changed!  I still have a sweet tooth.  This year I'll be trick-or-treating with a few of my little nieces and I'm hoping they let me have a piece or two.  But what else is out there for Halloween? Well I did a little investigation for the Block Island / Rhode Island area and there's everything from hay rides to pumpkin picking to haunted houses. Tons of attractions. So let's start with the Block and be sure to check out our Spooktastically Fun Halloween Stats.

Block Island

First off, it's a great time of year to visit the island.  Things have quieted down yet there's still a lot to do.  A bite to eat, an autumn hike, searching for sea glass on the beach or just reading a book on the hotel porch.  It's a beautiful time to make your way over.  Now, as for Halloween, there are a few events.

Halloween Party at the School

October 30th from 6 pm to 8 pm.
This is an all ages event meant to support the Block Island Student Council.

Spring House Hotel Halloween Bash

November 1st starting at 9:30pm.
Tickets are $20 at the door which includes live music and dancing. I've heard it's also a costume party.  They have a $250 package that includes a hotel room for two, admission to the party and continental breakfast the next day. If you want to stay Friday night as well, that will run you an extra $150.

Yellow Kittens Halloween Party

November 1st starting at 9pm.
It's an annual costume party contest. There will be a DJ and the $10 donation goes to the Block Island Fire Department.

Rhode Island

There's a lot to do around the Ocean State. Too many things to list them all individually but I did find a number of websites that summarize activities and events. Here's what I have. - Halloween

This is the official Providence convention and visitors bureau site and their page has more than just Halloween events. As far as Halloween it covers a diverse range including a Jack-O-Lantern spectacular and a horror film festival.

Halloween New England

Not only does this site list Rhode Island attractions, but it also covers Halloween activities in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. For Rhode Island they have eight suggestions which cover haunted houses and trails.
More info... - Rhode Island Directory

This site lists nine haunted adventures around the state. Some are houses, some are tours and some a outdoor experiences.
More info... - RI Haunted Houses

While this site only lists six Rhode Island events, it does give each a helpful rating on scare factor, monsters/actors, originality, sets/detail/theming and special FX. Just make sure to look at both pages one and two to see all six attractions.

Providence Journal Halloween Events

The main paper in Providence has a listing of 13 events around the city. There's family festivals, music events, haunted houses, trail walks, a masquerade and more.
More info...

Pumpkin Patches and More - RI Patches

Here pumpkin patches are listed by county which can make finding the ones close to you a bit easier. One thing they mention, which seems like a good idea for any attraction, is to call before you go as changes aren't always reported.
More info...

Where in RI - Halloween

With more listings than you can shake a stick at, this site organizes itself into Farms and Orchards, Haunted Houses, Corn Mazes and Halloween Stores.
More info...


That about covers it for this year. If you make it to any of these attractions (or other ones) I'd love to know what you think of them. Listings are great but even better are personal reviews.
