If you have kids, it is not always easy to find family-friendly Halloween events that emphasize fun over fright. Kids Monster Fest is here to create an immersive Halloween experience during daylight hours.
By night, the Veterans Memorial Coliseum transforms into one of the many local haunted houses crawling with haunts and frights for its annual attraction Underhill Haunted House. By day, Kids Monster Fest is opening its doors to little ones under the age of 12 (and scaredy cats of all ages) for a fun, adventurous fall activity without the traditional haunted house terror.
2022 Kids Monster Fest
The 2022 Kids Monster Fest is taking place October 22-23 from 12-3 p.m.
This immersive matinee experience is sure to give you chills and a few scares but in a wholesome, kid- and family-friendly environment. Aside from neighborhood trick-or-treating events, this is one of the city’s only Halloween events just for families. Other fun fall activities for all ages include Portland pumpkin patches and fall festivals.
At Kids Monster Fest, you’ll get access to the Underhill Manor. Kids will be given a magic wand that will keep all the monsters, ghouls and goblins at bay. Special prizes are given to kids who find Harry, the cute and friendly resident bat.
