We lost out on spooky season for the most part last year, so it’s good to have it back this year; so here’s your guide to Fayetteville area Halloween 2021 events, trick-or-treating times, and more.

With Halloween falling on a Sunday this year, it has created some scheduling trickery in the area. Many events are being held on Saturday, October 30, including “official” trick-or-treat hours.

If you have a Halloween event you want added to the list, send an email to brandon.plotnick@bbgi.com.

  • Cumberland County Trick-or-Treating

    This one is stirring debate all around the area, but Cumberland County has set trick-or-treating officially for Saturday, October 30 from 6-8 p.m. Officials have reportedly told many neighborhoods they can trick-or-treat on Sunday, if they wish, but that if there are complaints, they may be asked to leave.

    From Cumberland County:

    Trick or Treat Activities in Cumberland County are set for Saturday, Oct. 30. Children who plan to trick or treat should begin at 6 p.m. and end door-to-door visits no later than 8 p.m.
    Cumberland County Sheriff Ennis Wright offers Halloween Safety Tips:
    • Watch for children darting out from between parked cars, children walking on roadways, medians and curbs.
    • Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully
    • Make sure an adult or older responsible adult will be supervising the outing for children under age 12.
