Encinitas Safe Trick or Treat

October 31, 2023, 5-8 p.m.

Downtown Encinitas
Sout Coast Highway 101 from Encinitas Boulevard to K Street 

Cruise down to  Pumpkin Lane  and see all the decorated pumpkins along the 101. Downtown merchants hand out treats to costumed kids.

Check out the Kids Zone in The Lumberyard Courtyard, where children will enjoy Halloween themed games and activities, as well as live music.


Trick or Treat is being sponsored by Downtown Encinitas Main Street Association (DEMA), the group that brings you the famous Self Realization Fellowship carved pumpkins, fun, games & entertainment in the Lumberyard Center Courtyard and treats from downtown Encinitas merchants. South Coast Hwy 101 from Encinitas Blvd to K Street will be converted into Pumpkin Lane featuring fantastic, carved pumpkins at different viewing locations throughout downtown Encinitas.
The monks at Self Realization Fellowship have donated the pumpkins in previous years, as well as their time and pumpkin carving expertise to bring Pumpkin Lane to life. Self-Realization Fellowship once again presents the Queen's Court which some might remember from their large Halloween celebration on the SRF grounds in years past. The queen will be granting wishes and handing out candy at the Self Realization Fellowship Book Store at 1150 S Coast Hwy 101. The Downtown Encinitas MainStreet Association invites young and old to enjoy a spooky and cheerful Halloween in historic Downtown Encinitas.

Other fun Encinitas events include the summer concert series and the annual Easter Egg Hunt in the park.
