Halloween 2021 at the City Hotel

We are excited to welcome Halloween back to our wonderful City this year from 29th - 31st October 2021.

Brought to life by the people of the city over 35 years ago, Derry Halloween has become one of the world’s foremost Halloween and Samhain celebrations.The celebrations draw on Derry’s rich mythical, creative, and cultural history. For many years, we have proudly welcomed the Samhain celebrations of story-telling, mischief, feasting and hospitality.

From it’s simple beginnings as a fancy dress party in the city’s Castle Bar, the event has grown as each year, attracting revellers from all around the globe and showcasing a programme of arts, food, and music as well as cultural, contemporary and family events. Pre Covid-19 the celebrations have included the magical Awakening the Walls, the colourful Carnival Parade, fabulous Fireworks, the mouth-watering Legenderry Food Market, the fearsome Little Horrors Family Programme, and our stunning Samhain Sessions Music Programme. During the last on-street Halloween celebration in 2019, Derry citizens were proud to welcome over 140,000 visitors to our city. 

Located on the banks of the River Foyle and the hub of all folklore, feasting and festivities throughout the three day festival, the City Hotel is the ideal base to experience, explore and engross yourself in our world recognised walled city celebrations.

With something for everyone, the Halloween festivities calls for people from all ages to dress up and join in, from kids to big kids it really is a celebration for all to enjoy.
