Maine’s rich history, miles of coastline, and scenic byways ensure that the journey is as memorable as the destination during the fall. Halloween is an ideal time of year to celebrate the vibrant foliage and the haunted history that mark Maine as a destination.

Exploring the mid-coast Maine cemeteries with the Haunted History Tours is wonderful way to appreciate the season while soaking up the unique stories and traditions of the region. Ogunquit Fest features a little of everything for everyone with a scarecrow contest, pumpkin decorating, a scavenger hunt, and ghost stories.

Thrill-seekers will find terrifying scares at a variety of haunted houses, spooky attractions, and corn mazes that dot the state. During weekends in October, Sanford comes alive with The  House of the Dead's haunted house.  

And if you haven’t visited Damariscotta to witness the floating pumpkins-turned-paddleboats race in the quirky Pumpkinboat Regatta, well what are you waiting for?

Welcome to Halloween New England - Your best source for pumpkin patches, haunted hayrides, haunted houses, corn mazes, ghost tours, costumes stores, and Halloween events in Maine!
