Trick or Treat Times in New Jersey 2018

Posted on: October 22nd, 2018 by

We originally published our listing of Trick or Treat Times in New Jersey in 2012, and now we update this annually and frequently throughout October.

 

With 565 municipalities across New Jersey, it can be difficult to know when and where you and your family can go for trick or treating. Did you know not all NJ towns regulate when kids can trick or treat? Before you go out in your community to trick or treat you need to check trick or treat times in your neighborhood to see when your trick or treating hours take place. Every town is different. Some New Jersey towns have Halloween curfews. Some have trick or treating on the weekend. Some don’t have any rules. When it comes to finding local trick or treating let us help you figure it out with a town by town look at New Jersey Trick or Treat times. Why Google ‘trick or treating near me’ when we have it all here?

 

We are updating this list of Trick or Treat Times in New Jersey for Halloween 2018

    The links for each county takes you to the same exact page which has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween and trick or treating.
    I’m a new mom and last year I took my son to New York. This year we are staying here and I know from working in childcare in the past that trick or treating in towns sometimes is changed if it fell on a weekday. Have no idea when I can take my son in Morris county (Rockaway township)

    • Jennifer A. says:

      Angela, I disagree. The pages make look the same with the same format but the information on them is different. When you click on a county’s link you will be taken to our ‘calendar’ that lists the trick or treat times we have for the towns in that county. Our Calendar is the same regardless of what kind of event or the county of the event (that is why it looks the same), but the events listed are different. For example the Trick or Treat event calendar for Morris County is empty because we are currently researching those times. However, the first one listed for Warren County is Washington Township Trick or Treating.

  2. Amanda says:

    Do we have any idea if 2016 halloween trick or treating we still be on Monday the 31st, or is there a chance townships could reschedule to a non-school night during the weekend before?? (Warren County)

    I’m disappointed Gloucester twp is still on Monday.. I’m guessing since its there final decision it def won’t change back to Friday?

  14. B Mor says:

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has signed an Executive Order designating Monday, November 5 as Halloween in New Jersey. While Mount Laurel Township and Schools previously announced that Halloween would be observed on Friday to allow for clean-up from the storm in local neighborhoods, both entities have agreed to comply with the Governor’s Order.
    “Mount Laurel was very lucky not to have sustained tremendous damage during the hurricane. While many of our residents are without power, we did not experience the devastation that was felt as close as the barrier islands all along our coast. Our decision to join other towns in the state in a late observance of Halloween,” said Superintendent Dr. Antoinette Rath, “is one of solidarity with them and respect for the Governor and the job our state officials have done in protecting our safety.”
    All Mount Laurel School Parades and parties will be held on Monday, November 5. A complete list of events and times will be posted on each school webpage.

  15. Angie says:

    HALLOWEEN UPDATED NOTICE — the Governor has signed an executive order for celebrations of Halloween scheduled for October 31, 2012 in all parts of New Jersey shall be held on Monday, November 5, 2012. Therefore, Mayor Bencivengo and Hamilton Township urge residents to follow this Executive Order and conduct trick-or-treating on Monday, November 5, 2012… http://nj.gov/infobank/circular/eocc105.pdf

  23. Dana says:

    Since Gov. Christie announced this morning that Halloween will now be Monday, are these Trick-or-Treat schedules still accurate?

    • Jennifer Auer says:

      We are updating now. Some towns are ignoring the orders. Others had already rescheduled to other dates. The latest updates will be in blue type. – Jenn

  24. Melissa says:

    Chris Christie signed an Executive order postponing Halloween until Monday!

  25. Sharron says:

    Governor Christie postpones Halloween
    Posted on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 11:43 am
    by Melissa Hayes
    Don’t put those costumes on yet and hold onto that candy until next week.

    Governor Christie signed an executive order this morning rescheduling Halloween to Nov. 5 because of unsafe conditions in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

    “I’ve taken this action to minimize additional risks to lives and the public safety as we begin the process of rebuilding and recovering from Hurricane Sandy,” Christie said in a statement. “In too many communities in our state, the damage and losses from this storm are still being sorted out and dangerous conditions abound even as our emergency management and response officials continue their work.”
    Several municipalities in North Jersey had postponed Halloween until Saturday. But Christie said he’s concerned it will still be dangerous for children to be out then.

    “As governor, it is my responsibility to use all available resources of the state government to protect against the emergency created by Hurricane Sandy – postponing Halloween celebrations by five days is a commonsense and necessary step to accomplish that,” he said.

    Guess this changes everything!

  26. cate says:

    Gov. Christie just announced that Halloween is canceled for the entire state until Monday.

  27. Stephanie says:

    Clinton Boro, Clinton Twp and Readington Twp all canceled trick or treating for tonight and have not re-scheduled

  30. Christina says:

    I’m from Sicklerville NJ but live on the Camden County side. I want to know if there’s going to be trick or treating today.

  31. nick says:

    what about little egg harbor

  32. Sharon says:

    Just a call about 10 minutes ago from the township saying that Christie said there is to be no trick or treating today. Cinnaminson was supposed to be on Friday, but the call said that Christie will make a decision today about Halloween and Cinnaminson will abide by that.

  33. Terri Peterla says:

    New Hanover, Burlington county is Saturday, 5:30-8:00

  34. Eileen says:

    Lower Township Trick or Treat Friday November 2nd 6 – 8 pm

  35. Amanda says:

  36. Sally Walker says:

    Please note that Halloween in Upper Pittsgrove Township, Salem County, has been officially rescheduled to Saturday, November 3. The township web site has been updated as of this morning.

  37. mary says:

    Can someone please tell me what Gov Christie says about this. Im so confused in what to do? Thanks

    • Jennifer Auer says:

      So far we only know that he is expected to make a statement about Halloween and possibly cancelling it for tonight. We have not heard anything else and for now still believe that each town is deciding what to do for their area unless a County State of Emergency takes precedent. We are confused as well but will continue to update our readers with what we find out. – Jenn

  38. Elizabeth says:

    I received this email from Stratford in Camden County
    The mayor has decided to move Halloween to Friday. Please remember the curfew of 7 pm will be in place Friday.

    I seriously wish they would do away with house to house trick or treating….communities should just have parties at the schools..it’s more safe for the kids and it doesn’t annoy homeowners that don’t want to be bothered…sorry..JMO ..I love the kids tho..:)

  43. Tina says:

    We got a call about an hour ago that Shamong Twp in Burlington County is Friday November 2nd.

  44. ingrid says:

    does anyone know when sicklerville nj trick treating is

    • apessolano says:

      I believe Sicklerville is in Winslow Township and they have rescheduled Trick or Treat to Saturday November 3rd from 3:00-8:00pm.

  45. melissa says:

    just wondering why these times and dates are being posted when governor Christie is officially announcing a statewide Halloween tomorrow afternoon? would just hate to have kids and parents rescheduling things when the dates could be incorrect.

  46. Steve says:

    Maple Shade in burlington county trick or treating was rescheduled to Saturday November 3rd from 10am-6pm

  47. Patti says:

    Camden County – Haddonfield….Is it Friday the 2nd or Saturday the 3rd?

  48. Morgan says:

    is this for real??? what happens if you go out tomorrow??

    • Jennifer Auer says:

      I think that depends on the town. If it’s not safe you put yourself in danger. If the town is under a curfew you risk fines and tickets. – Jenn

  49. Vicky O says:

    Berlin Twp has not changed their time.
