Halloween in Taipei 2016

Halloween in Taipei 2016

Dear Taipei,

It’s that brilliant time of year again: Halloween! And if you’re going to be in Taipei for it, consider yourself lucky because Halloween in Taipei is damn good.

I know for a fact it’s been on a lot of people’s minds because my Halloween article from last year has been my most read and searched for article lately. I keep seeing people clicking, but I’ve been debating whether to make one this year again as it’s quite an arduous process to put together. But as no one else seems to have put one together for this year, I guess I should do it all again! Presenting…

Please note: The above list is a compilation of extracts from each respective event posted on Facebook. (Whereas last year I wrote the event descriptions myself). For further details and to clarify final details, please refer to the given Facebook pages. I’m updating this myself manually in my spare time, and am not getting any form of compensation doing so, so please be patient. Taipei venues announce their events very sporadically, so it’s hard to keep track. What’s more, even when they do make an event, often the information given is not complete/sparce.

    Hi! This is really helpful! If you don’t mind me asking, are these parties tourist friendly? And how strict these dress codes tend to be?

    1. Hi Wendy! 😀

      Glad it’s helpful!

      I’ve only been to one Halloween event here, and absolutely everyone was dressed up. Some people went all out, and other were more low-key with a simple mask. So long as you dress up a bit you’ll be fine!

      What do you mean by tourist friendly? If you mean is it ok for foreigners to go, of course! I’m a foreigner myself, and at most of these parties there’s at least a 50/50 Taiwanese to foreigner ratio.

      Check the individual pages for any events you’re interested in as that will give you a better indication of the vibe 🙂 Happy Halloween 😀
