We are updating our listing of Where Kids Can Eat Free this Halloween for 2019. We first published this listing in 2013. We update it annually to reflect the current year’s information.
Where Kids Can Eat Free this Halloween at local restaurants and eateries!
Halloween is on a Thursday this year and between Halloween/Ragamuffin Parades, Trunk or Treats and classic Trick or Treating activities our little ones can work up an appetite and their schedule can leave parents with little time to think of meal prep. Some local restaurants and eateries are helping out our favorite trick or treaters by letting them eat for FREE or for reduced prices on Halloween! What could be better?
Please note that some of these locations require costumes be worn, while others don’t. Locations in italics are awaiting confirmation for 2019.
Want to support Jersey Family Fun as you dine out with your kids?
Did you know that Jersey Family Fun is a small NJ-mom owned business that supports other moms that want to work from home? We are! Part of the way we do that is with affiliate relationships with online stores like Amazon. When you use one of our links to make a purchase we receive a small commission that gets invested back into this site. With that in mind, we’d love it if you would consider buying one of the below items with these links. It will make dining out with kids easier and help us at the same time.
