Halloween Activities in Bellingham and Whatcom County

It’s time to get ready for Halloween in Bellingham and Whatcom County! When you’re looking for some spoooooky Halloween fun, we’ve got the round-up what's happening around town.  

Semiahmoo Resort has spooky events planned all month long! Book a trip and enjoy fall festivities like fireside frightsAlfred HitchcockRocky Horror Picture Showpumpkin painting, and more!  

Each October, the Pickford Film Center hosts Doctober, a month-long documentary film festival. Although it's not a Halloween-related activity, you know it's fall when the Pickford officially announces this annual event. 

 It’s the largest documentary festival in the northwest, screening over 40 films in one month. This year’s showings include After Antarctic, ClayDream, Mission: Joy, and The Place that Makes Us.  

Located in Ferndale, Triple Wren Farms grows blueberries and flowers in the summer and shifts to focusing on pumpkins in the fall. It’s also home to an apiary, so be sure to taste some honey before you drive off.   

The pumpkins at Triple Wren range from warty to striped, giant to miniature, and everything in-between. Some are perfect for carving, others perform better if you want to cook with them.   

Every Saturday during October, the Good Time Girls peel back the curtain to show the inner workings of a true grain-to-glass distillery. Partnering with Chuckanut Bay Distillery, the girls are sharing their knowledge of the building's history and how locally grown flavors can be made into award-winning spirits.   

Grab your costumes and head to Menace Brewing for a monster mash of spooky trivia! Categories will include Halloween Treats, Who’s that spooky monster, Serial Killers of Bellingham, Spooky cinema, and Halloween Crafts. 

The winner gets the cash pot ($100 guaranteed) with a $50 gift card available for the runner-up. There will also be a best costume prize and a prize for the spookiest team name. 

Celebrate Halloween with the Bellingham Bells baseball team! Dinger, the Bellingham Bells mascot, will be judging a costume contest and his five favorite costumes will win a special prize. Also, the first 500 kids will receive a locally-made full-size candy bar and activity bag with a photo of the 2021 Bells team!

The Community Boating Center will have paddleboard, kayak, or rowboat rentals available, or bring your own. ⁣There is a candy reward for those who can find a hidden treasure and warm beverages for everyone post-paddle.  

Bellewood Farms, in Lynden Washington, has been a Whatcom County favorite for years, especially in the fall when the air is crisp, and apples are ready to be picked.  

Travel Tip: Check out our blog "Fall Favorite: Harvest at Bellewood" for the inside scoop on where to get pumpkins this fall. 

Stoney Ridge Farm is a fam-favorite! In the fall, when their pumpkins turn orange and their apples are ripe the fun begins. Stoney Ridge has train rides for kids and wagon rides for all, and a corn maze that’s included in the admission. They also sell pumpkins, gourds, squash, apples, corn stalks, and flowers for you to bring the fall spirit home.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
