Visiting Athens over the Halloween period? Here are two great places you can celebrate Halloween in Athens with kids.
Halloween in Greece
Halloween will soon be upon us, and if you are planning to travel to Greece over that period, you may be looking at ways to enjoy Halloween whilst there.
We’ll be honest, Halloween is not a big deal in Greek culture although this is slowly changing. Trick or Treating does happen, but on a pretty low key basis, with perhaps the kids of each apartment block knocking on the doors of their neighbours. It’s certainly not on the scale it is in the United States though.
In some ways, adults are more into it than the kids, with bars and nightclubs holding special event nights for people that want to dress up and get into the spirit of things.
Still, we do have some suggestions for families visiting Athens during the Halloween period.
The Little Kook
The Little Kook is our favourite quirky little cafe in Athens. They redecorate the shop with different seasonal themes such as Christmas and Easter, and of course Halloween is no exception!
They do a great line in tasty witch and spider cakes, and eating there is a real experience. We’re sure your kids will love taking photos outside even if you decide not to take a break inside!
A real witch is walking around the store and lots of scary corners will bring you into the Halloween spirit.
The Hard Rock Cafe in Athens
The Athens branch of this famous chain is a popular place for families to visit no matter what the time of year.
The Hard Rock Cafe does also put on yearly Halloween special events. Kids will love the Kids Halloween party:
12:30 PM – 4:30 PM Special Events – Dress up your little Monstars – and join us to celebrate Halloween:- Themed handcrafts from our animator- Halloween Face painting- Halloween Doughnut activity- Halloween decoration, music and candies Kids menu + participation fee: 15 € per kid

Halloween at the Ranch
For a Halloween celebration at the countryside, head over to the Ranch. The Ranch is a beautiful farm concept near Athens in the Peloponnese with programs for Greek and foreign families. On 2 and 3 November, a special Halloween event will take place. Have a look at https://ranch.gr/en.
