Trick or Treat with the Mayor is back! Come down to City Hall on Saturday, October 28 and join in on the spooky Halloween fun.

Meet a cast of costumed characters in the “Weird and Wonderful" Heritage Building where you will be welcomed by the Enchanted Witches and Goblins of Elgin Street. Collect special treats and venture down the Hall of Villains for more goodies and fun. Finally, meet more of your favourite, fun costumed characters in Jean Pigott Place and brace yourself for a meeting with the Tooth Fairy.

The City of Ottawa is proud to partner with Treat Accessibly to help make trick-or-treating accessible and inclusive for everyone.  

Date: Saturday, October 28

Time: 5 to 8 pm

Location: Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Street West
Enter at the Lisgar Street entrance of the Heritage Building

Admission: A non-perishable item or cash donation to the Ottawa Food Bank’s Baby Basics Program

The Ottawa Food Bank’s Baby Basics Program helps parents in need by providing items in high demand such as formula, baby food and diapers. Chronic shortages of these basic needs make stocking baby supplies one of the Food Bank’s most expensive, but most precious priorities.

Please email to advise us if you need any accessibility-related accommodation.

Please note this is not a nut-free event. Dress warmly as the queue to enter the Heritage Building from Lisgar Street will be outdoors. Please bring your own treat bag.
