Halloween is a fun time of year for kids to pick a costume and get candy, but it is also a fun time of year for adults – especially in Las Vegas with a large number of Halloween parties and activities. From costume contests to Halloween-themed menus and drinks, Las Vegas is certainly the place to celebrate Halloween this year. We’re sharing a variety of spectacular Las Vegas Halloween 2022 events that look to be scary fun!

While this is a year-round haunted museum, Halloween is certainly a time this haunted museum goes all out. Full of tricks that will scare and surprise you, this haunted museum is a sight not to miss. As this is open more days than just Halloween, you can extend your Las Vegas Halloween celebrations or start a few days early with a visit to Zak Bagans’ Haunted Museum.
Potted Potter at Horseshoe Las Vegas
Harry Potter and Halloween are a pretty perfect match, and what better way to celebrate than a show all about Harry Potter? This 70-minute show is a comedy that combines all seven Harry Potter books into one show, with all of your favorite characters making an appearance. The show is definitely a treat. Whether you are enjoying spirited drinks for the holiday, you can make your way around the Strip after the show using the Monorail’s conveniently located Horseshoe & Paris Las Vegas Monorail Station.
This particular event at the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay Aquarium is a kid-friendly adventure where the entire aquarium is turned into a haunted shipwreck complete with costume contests as well as trick-or-treating.

Watch a Burlesque Show With Zombies
Zombies are a big part of Halloween, so a Vegas burlesque show with Zombies might just be one of the most perfect shows to see while in Las Vegas for Halloween. Located at the V Theater, this show is a treat from start to finish and will leave you wondering why you haven’t seen it sooner. As the Zombie Burlesque website notes, “Club Z wasn’t considered the most risque zombie adult club in America for no reason – audiences will witness homages to the most famous horror movies of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s performed by the most beautiful (and “dead” sexy) women in town.”
Phish Las Vegas Halloween Show
For rock fans of Phish and Halloween, there might not be a more perfect time to visit Las Vegas. The iconic rockers are going to be playing in Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena throughout the month of October. But the night to see is their grand finale Halloween show that, as the Phish Las Vegas site describes, will be a “massive Halloween show.” With a packed venue on a holiday night, transportation could be tricky. With direct service from the MGM Grand Monorail Station, concert attendees can take the Monorail to other stops along the Strip in just a matter of minutes, avoiding backed-up traffic and long taxi lines.
Famous Las Vegas Halloween Pub Crawl
Easily one of the bigger parties in Las Vegas each year, the Las Vegas Halloween Pub Crawl should be at the top of the list for anyone looking for a party or a good pub experience. Hitting some of the best bars throughout Las Vegas, including the Strip, this popular event will likely take you to bars you haven’t been to in Las Vegas. The Halloween Pub Crawl in Las Vegas will be full of treats like special deals and meeting new friends.
