Wanna get prepped for Halloween with free candy and fun? Thanks to Lowe’s free Halloween event, your little ghosts and goblins can get a trick-or-treat sneak peek before October 31.

Lowe’s holds the Spooky Trick or Treat event ahead of Halloween each year. In 2023, the event happened on Oct. 28 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. All you have to do is register and your little ghosts and goblins can attend in costume for free candy and activities.

You might remember that back in 2020 when no one really knew how to handle Halloween amid the pandemic the chain held an event curbside. This way, kids still scored some sugar but safely from the family car. But now it’s time to throw on those costumes and head to Lowe’s once again.

We’ll get into the nitty-gritty of the event details below, but the most important thing to call out is that it requires registration. Lowe’s isn’t asking for a ton from you, just the basics like your name and the number of kids you’ll have in tow. After all, they need to have enough candy on hand.

Every year, Lowe’s promises free treats to kids participating in their Spooky Trick or Treat event.

Families who register on can head over to their designated Lowe’s store (see more on that below) to receive some candy. There is also a Halloween-themed backdrop so you can take a bunch of photos to commemorate the spooky activity.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. In 2023, the event happened on Saturday, Oct. 28. In 2024, we expect the event to happen on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Registration is required to participate and closes one day before the event.

You have to head over to the Spooky Trick or Treat event page on to register for the annual event, at least one day before it starts. They’ll ask you to either log in with your existing Lowe’s account or create a new one to register for the free event.

Registration is required to participate in Spooky Trick or Treat, and each store only has a certain number of available slots. Please note that submissions close one day before the event, so it will likely close on Oct. 25, 2024. If you did not register for the event, you may want to contact your local store BEFORE you go to make sure there is available space.
