This year, the City of Pittsburgh’s official trick-or-treating hours are from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, October 31.

The City of Pittsburgh has also created an easy, user-friendly way for community and church groups to register their Halloween festivies online. By registering your event here, you will receive free Halloween safety activity books for the children attending your event and a special recognition from Mayor Ravenstahl. Registering your event also puts it on a City-wide Halloween Festivity Event Map.

For more information, or to request a free activity book, please contact Liz Style in the Mayor’s Department of Neighborhood Initiatives at 412-255-4772 or via email at
