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 on All Hallows’ Eve. 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 “Seven Deadly Sins,” so start planning your costumes early. Winners of categories such as best individual, best group, best themed costume are awarded with 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.


Renowned all over the world, Salem has become synonymous with Halloween, and ever since 1991 the annual Hawthorne Halloween party has been the place to be. As the hotel transforms into an unrivalled see-and-be-seen spectacle, close to 1,000 people attend the costume party that takes place across 3 floors.

Vying for cash prizes, and year-long bragging rights, guests outdo each other with their creative costume designs, and some even come all the way from California just to attend this night long extravaganza. Complete with a live band, 2 DJ’s and food stations, this is a party that cannot be missed!
