About the event:
The Annual Village Halloween Parade is back for 2023! The pageant is the largest public participatory event in the city, with over 50,000 costumed New Yorkers marching, dancing, and parading up Sixth Avenue, along with dozens of bands, floats, giant puppets, and more!
This year’s theme is “Upside/Down: Inside/OUT,” and New Yorkers can join in on the topsy-turvy theme by wearing costumes representing the version of themselves they most want to present to the world. In recent years, we've spent a lot of time inside—both physically and within ourselves. Now it's time to come OUT into the world. Feel free to get creative with the theme and make it yours!
The iconic parade will take place on Halloween night, and all you have to do if you want to be a part of it is show up—in costume, of course. Nothing is too wacky or wild, so come in your most creative and memorable getup. If you’d rather just take it all in, there are plenty of spots for viewing. The procession begins north of King Street and ends at 15th Street. The streets are most crowded between Bleecker and 14th, so get there early to snag a good spot or try another place along the route.
NOTE: Bucket Listers is not affiliated with the Village Halloween Parade. This event is free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations required.
