Halloween on the Hill!
Enjoy an incredible day at Hill-Stead as you stroll through the gorgeous grounds all gussied up for All Hallows’ Eve! Kids and adults alike will delight as they follow a socially distanced path to numerous candy chute stations for touch-less treat delivery! Beyond safe trick-or-treating, there will be spooky displays by local friends and businesses throughout the 152-acre campus as well as a peek-a-boo view of the Pump Station as a decked-out haunted house. A spirited adventure awaits you at Hill-Stead.
Ticket Holder Information
Below are some details to help you prepare for this safe and fun event. Hill-Stead Museum & Grounds will be closed to the general public for both walking and House tours to serve the children of the greater Hartford community for our first annual Halloween on the Hill.
Please arrive at the 35 Mountain Road entrance and provide the name on your ticket to be admitted and receive a color-coded wristband: 10 – 11:30 am GREEN, 12 pm – 1:30 ORANGE, 2 – 3:30 pm BLUE, 4 – 5:30 pm RED, 6 – 7:30 pm YELLOW.
- For the later shifts, please bring your own flashlight—the Candy Chute Path will be dark!
- Restrooms will be available for ticketholders.
You must visit during your allotted time window (no later and no earlier!). Kindly exercise patience as there may be traffic and delays as we welcome our young trick-or-treaters. It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete the Candy Chute Path.
We will need to clear the Path for the final 30 minutes of your allotted time window (11:30 am/1:30 pm/3:30 pm/5:30 pm/7:30 pm) to clean and refill candy stations, so please plan accordingly.
Please exit the property promptly upon finishing the Candy Chute Path to allow for the next group of trick-or-treaters.
All ticket holders who attend an outdoor event at Hill-Stead must adhere to the following Visitation Protocols at all times while onsite, including proper PPE mask-wearing. Please note: Halloween masks do not count as acceptable face coverings. Visitors must adhere to safe social distance practices as outlined here.
If a ticketholder does not wish to adhere to these Visitation Protocols or if you cannot attend for any reason, please release your tickets PRIOR to the event so that others can attend. As you can imagine, there is tremendous interest in attending this fun-filled and festive event.
