Halloween at the Market

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

Sunday, October 25  

4:30-7:00 p.m.   

The City of Rochester Public Market is pleased to offer Halloween at the Market on the Sunday before Halloween each year for children and families to try 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 dozens of community organizations and agencies that will host trick or treating, and also share valuable information about their programs and services!

Special thanks to Rochester Eye & Laser Center for their generous sponsorship of this year's 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,  hay rides, food vendors and stands, a Bat Appreciation Booth, 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 585-428-6907.
