Hawthorne Hotel’s 28th Annual Halloween Party

If you have not been to the Halloween Party at the Hawthorne, you have not really experienced Halloween. A tradition for over 20 years, this party sells out every year and is the “place to be” in Salem. The Hawthorne Hotel’s annual Halloween Party is the biggest and best Salem has to offer. Enjoy three floors of food, fine costumes, live music, DJs, dancing, psychics, and of course the big Hawthorne costume contest. This year’s theme is to be determined, but feel free to start planning your costumes early. Winners are awarded cash prizes and, most importantly, claim to a 12-month bragging right.

Doors open 7:00PM • Must be 21 years or older • Tickets are Non-Refundable • Valid ID Required at the Door.

Tickets on sale June 1, 2018, see website for updates.
