Your 2019 Guide to Halloween in San Jose

Between the haunted halls of the Winchester Mystery House to kid-friendly trick-or-treat nights, we welcome all ghouls and goblins to explore the spooky corners of the city! Dress up in costume and see the tricks and treats San Jose has to offer.

Spirits can be felt at the Winchester Mystery House all year ‘round but the estate is especially spooky during Halloween! Enjoy the late-night Unhinged tour through the cursed mansion. Explore forbidden rooms, confront spirits and encounter terrifying scenes that will reveal the home’s twisted tales and secrets – currently running until November 2.
