Halloween at Brown Park

Since 1997, the Chamber of St. Matthews and City of St. Matthews have brought together thousands of area residents, dozens of organizations, and countless area businesses in a fun-filled, family friendly Halloween event.

The City of St. Matthews’ annual Halloween in Brown Park is enjoyed by children of all ages, even those who are a child at heart. This family event has grown enormously from its conception attracting over 5,000 children and adults to this one day event. The event is free to all, with the exception of optional food and drink which are provided by a nonprofit group as a fundraiser. If you have never attended this event, Halloween in Brown Park offers music, games, inflatables, hayrides, and a whole lot more!

The festivities begin at 11 a.m. in Brown Park, located at the corner of Kresge Way and Browns Lane, next to Baptist Healthcare. Free parking is available at the doctors building across from the hospital. Promptly at 11:30 a.m. the trick-or-treating begins at the pavilion, where the children and families continue forward, meandering through the walking path of the park collecting goodies. Over 50 businesses and organizations are set up along the way to give the little “ghosts and goblins” treats and surprises. The entire event concludes at 3:00 p.m.

St. Matthews’ Halloween in Brown Park is a safe, fun, and free family-orientated event, and there is much more to do than just collect candy. Plan now to attend for the most jam-packed four hours of fun your family can have, and best of all it’s FREE!

Free parking for the event will be at 4007 Kresge Way, a part of the Baptist Health Louisville Campus directly across from the hospital.

Event is rain or shine. In the case of a dangerous weather event OR due to COVID-19 restrictions some changes may occur to keep the event safe
