For well over 20 years, the Chamber of St. Matthews and City of St. Matthews have brought together thousands of residents, dozens of organizations, and countless area businesses in a fun-filled family friendly, safe, Halloween event.
Starting as a small community event to give families in St. Matthews a safe place to take their young ones trick-or-treating this event has grown to be very open and welcoming to the entire area. With over 60 area businesses setting up trick-or-treating stations throughout Brown Park’s trail, bounce houses, hay rides, and games and crafts this event is always a great way to get into the Halloween spirit.
This event is held at Brown Park in St. Matthews, located on Kresge Way right next to Baptist Hospital East, it is an easy access park. The trail for Trick-or-Treating runs into the woods on the shorter path, shy of one (1) mile, while the hayride runs on the outside longer path, weather permitting.
In an effort to be as inclusive as possible we encourage every one of our vendors to not only provide sweet eats, but also be a Teal Pumpkin Project participant. This project is designed to offer non-food treats for trick-or-treaters who may suffer from a food allergy. All those participating in the project will have a Teal Pumpkin displayed in their booth in some fashion.
Parking for the event will be at 4007 Kresge Way, a part of the Baptist Health Louisville Campus directly across from the hospital.
