 Costumes, Candy, and Community! It's a Bonus Dress-Up, Trick-or-Treat Halloween Opportunity at the Market 

HalloweenFTR14Thanks to the 85 community organizations and 5,000-plus attendees for braving clammy conditions to make the third annual Halloween at the Market event a humongous success!  The 2019 event will be held Sunday,  October 27, 2019 from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m.

The City of Rochester Public Market is pleased to offer an Halloween at the Market opportunity on the Sunday before Halloween each year for children and families to test out their costumes, get an extra trick or treating opportunity, AND connect with dozens of community organizations and agencies that exist to improve your quality of life. 

Visitors to Halloween at the Market will find the vendor sheds filled with over 80 community organizations and agencies that will host trick or treating, and also share valuable information about their programs and services! See below for a list of the community organizations that attended the 2018 event.

We are thrilled to open the Market for some good old fashioned Halloween fun and tradition—and also to connect community members with our outstanding community organizations.  

In addition to the trick or treating, the event features the Rec on the Move mobile recreation center, harvest hayrides, a "Bat Appreciation Booth" as part of our Nature @ the Market program (bats are unfortunately badly misunderstood and maligned, largely as a result of Halloween), and more! 

If you are with a nonprofit community organization/agency that would like to participate in the event, contact us at pmarket@cityofrochester.gov or call 585-428-7282!
