Looking for some Halloween events for toddlers in Greenville, SC? Or maybe some Halloween events for babies? One of the highlights of having small children, if we are honest with ourselves, is dressing them. And costuming in October is even more rewarding and adorable. We at Kidding Around Greenville think we can help. Here’s a list of costume-happy activities without late hours or spooky décor. They are the perfect formula for toddlers and babies! Besides, we all need another excuse to coo over our little skunks and dragons.
Read on for some tot-friendly destinations in Greenville to try this year.
Ticketed Trick-or-Treating for Small Fries
Possibly the most well-known local Halloween event, Boo in the Zoo, is a kid-friendly path through the zoo. Twenty treat spots await you! Your baby’s or toddler’s jack-o-lantern will be stocked. While it’s unlikely you’ll see many animals out in their enclosures, the reptile house and all restrooms are open. The Greenville Zoo does a terrific job decorating the grounds in a kid-friendly way and provides popular character experiences and photo opportunities. Dress up and enjoy! Buy tickets in advance or at the gate.

Trick-or-Treat at TCMU
Trick-or-Treat at TCMU is perfect for little ones. On Saturday, October 28, 2023, children and families will wind their way through the museum, collecting candy from community vendors and sponsors. This event is happening at both TCMU locations in Greenville and Spartanburg from 9 am – 5 pm. Note: Tickets are timed and should be purchased in advance.
Free Festivals with Trick-or-Treating Perfect for Little Ones
The last Saturday in October, the TD Saturday Market continues an adorable tradition of kids’ costumes, trick-or-treating, games, and a costume contest. The morning timing for trick-or-treating is miraculous, you must agree. Perfect for the small fries! Bring along your reusable shopping bags to stock up on autumn produce and artisan wares while your costumed kidlet is admired. Reference the TD Saturday Market website for the costume contest and group game times.
Side street parking is available for your visit, though we recommend the Richardson Street Garage for easy access to the market.
Main Street – Greenville, SC 29602
October 28th, 8:00 am-12:00 pm (trick-or-treating)
Not-So-Spooky Spooktacular Trail
October 28, 2023: 3 pm – 5 pm | Not-So-Spooky Spooktacular Trail | Take Heart Church
Adjusting to a new baby is challenging enough, and toddlers can prove unpredictable when out late or off-schedule. You shouldn’t have to miss out on every holiday tradition, though! Kidding Around Greenville hopes that we can play a small part in starting new Halloween family traditions for your growing family. Our own Bethany Winston did the tiresome job of compiling these opportunities, and, boy, are we grateful. Please let us know how it goes, and happy costuming!
