Are you ready for Halloween, Amsterdam?

Are you ready for Halloween, Amsterdam?

In 2000 Amsterdam Spook organised one of the city’s very first Halloween parties for a small crowd of 150 people at Boom Chicago theatre.  13 years on, and the party has blossomed to venues such as Odeon and Felix Meritis and even branched out into a 6-day festival.

The goal has never been to be a big party, but to offer people an authentic, intimate and creative Halloween they’ll never forget! It is therefore with great pleasure that we invite you to join our 13th Halloween costume party. Inspired by dark fables & creepy bedtime stories, the 2013 theme is: Scarytales.

Amsterdam: the European capital of Halloween
Spook’s motivation for organising the Amsterdam Halloween Festival was to put Amsterdam on the map as the European (haunted) home of Halloween. In 2012, the festival attracted international media and guests and made it on a few lists including the top 5 destinations in the world for Halloween.

Last year, some 3,000 guests attended festival events. Halloween fans came from all over the Netherlands & the globe for bloody good fun: US, UK, Germany, Limburg, and even a group of 5 from Kuwait.

What sets Amsterdam Spook apart from the rest? The themes are original, the costumes are fun, the passion is authentic, the ideas are unique, the crowd is awesome and we’re ALL about Halloween! Curious? Check out the site for past parties!
