National Trick or Treat Day History

National Trick or Treat Day began as a movement led by the Halloween & Costume Association to change Hallowen's date from October 31st to the last Saturday of October. The Association argued that it would be safer and more enjoyable for kids to go Trick or Treat on a Saturday rather than on a week day. The leaders of the movement stated that the lack of time and supervision on a week day increases the number of kids injured during Halloween. Althought the movement’s petition picked up over 120,000 signatures, the Halloween & Costume Association had to change its goal. In 2019, the organization created the National Trick or Treat day. The observance occurs on the last Saturday of October.

National Trick or Treat Day Facts

  • We’ve listened to ALL of your feedback since the petition started in 2018 and view this as an opportunity to truly honor what Halloween is – a celebration of self-expression and unity. While we still believe an end-of-October Saturday observance will promote safety and increase the fun, this year we will be launching a national initiative designed to enhance the Halloween that we all know and love. Instead of changing the date that American’s celebrate Halloween, we will be adding an additional day of festivities in partnership with Party City and other brands. National Trick or Treat Day will take place annually on the last Saturday of October so families across the country can participate in community parades, throw neighborhood parties and opt for daytime Trick or Treating. Halloween & Costume Association, 2019.
