New York City’s 48th Annual

Village Halloween Parade

October 31, 2021 at 7 pm | Presented LIVE by NY1 at 8 pm

The nation’s most wildly creative public participatory event in the greatest city in the world!



πŸ•·οΈ You Might be Wondering…
Will the Halloween Parade Happen This Year? πŸ•·οΈ

The answer is

πŸ™Œ YES! πŸ™Œ

New York’s 48th Annual Village Halloween Parade WILL take place on October 31, 2021


An Angel flew in and saved the day!

πŸ’« Jason Feldman and his wife Missy πŸ’«

They LOVE Halloween!

“When I heard on the news that the annual Village Halloween Parade was going to be canceled for lack of funds, I was devastated,” Feldman said. “I immediately felt called to save the parade, and to make a difference for our city. Honestly, as a native New Yorker I love this parade so much I don’t really think I had a choice. I know it’s not literally the shot in the arm most people are looking for, but I would suggest it’s the best medicine for our city.”


This year’s Parade is dedicated to the Children of NYC who could not celebrate Halloween last year. This year we are inviting them to design the giant Puppets that lead the Parade!

🎨 Call for Drawings! 🎨


Randy Rainbow

We chose Randy because of his bravery in “singing truth to power” and making us laugh during hard times. As he says in his fabulous videos….

Our theme this year is #letsplay #alltogethernow and Alex and Sophia of Processional Arts Workshop and a crew of volunteers are is building our theme puppets in a magical workshop upstate this weekend. 

These large puppets are being built based on drawings submitted by children to the Children's Museum of the Arts



See link in bio for more about the 2021 theme!
πŸ™πŸΌ Many thanks @rockefellercenter for featuring us in the "best things to do in New York City in October" in The Center Magazine! We have to agree, the Parade IS one of the best possible thing you can do in NYC in October! Don't miss it!

❝ Perhaps the most iconic event on this list is the Village Halloween Parade, which takes place on the boisterous streets of the West Village. Every year, the parade has a different theme; this year, it’s β€œLet’s Play,” which pays homage to the children of New York City and the inner child within us who can let loose for this special night. 

The parade will be in full swing between 7 and 11 pm (but it’s recommended to get there around 6:30), and VIP tickets are available. Otherwise, it’s completely free to watch from the sidelines. If you want to participate in the parade itself, you must be in full costume. ❞

πŸŽΊπŸ¦„ Big shout out to the Lesbian & Gay Big Apple Corps who have been coming to the Parade for at least a decade!

Our deadline is October 5th! This campaign is our last ditch effort to save this year's Village Halloween Parade so that YOU can continue to enjoy the freedom of expression and creativity the Parade provides. 

If we don't raise funds, we will have to cancel the 2021 Parade. 😿

Please DONATE If you can! https://halloween-nyc.com/

For 48 years we have put on a FREE parade for the people of New York City! 

But a production of this size has a huge budget and we are severely short this year due to having to cancel the parade last year.

NOW we are asking for your help to bring this great parade back to to the streets in 2021. We need to raise $150,000 by October 5th in order to hold this event.

These are challenging times, but we believe in the power of the people! That's YOU, people!

Please see our profile for donation links!

We have gotten this go-ahead VERY LATE and we do NOT (at the moment) have enough money to make the Parade happen, so…
😦 the Parade could STILL be CANCELLED 😦
…due to lack of funds.
