Experience the Perfect Blend of Spooky Fun

Haunted Village at Burnaby Village Museum promises a spine-tingling yet family-friendly experience, bringing forth a world of Halloween enchantment. As you explore the 10-acre open-air site, you’ll encounter skeletons, jack-o-lanterns, giant spiders, and costumed mannequins portraying scenes from beloved literary tales. While there’s a small graveyard, fear not – it’s not gruesome or excessively frightening. This is a place where the magic of Halloween comes to life, and costumes are not only welcomed but encouraged. So, embrace the Halloween spirit, don your favorite attire, and prepare for a night of unforgettable fun.

You might be wondering if Haunted Village is similar to last year’s Eerie Illusion. The answer is no; this year’s event is a departure from the previous offering. Haunted Village transforms the 10-acre site into a canvas for well-known legends, tales, and stories. From classics like “Snow White” to adventurous journeys like “The Monkey King,” the experience is nothing short of enchanting. But that’s not all; the event also boasts thrilling circus performances, dances at the bandstand, and encounters with roaming Halloween characters. It’s a fresh take on Halloween that will leave you spellbound.
