After a two year hiatus, the beloved community tradition of Trick-or-Treat on Huguenot Street returns to New Paltz, Monday, October 31st from 3:30 – 5:30 PM. Children and families are welcome to gather on Huguenot Street and seek goodies from the residents of the historic homes, both past and present.
This event is free and open to the public. RSVP to huguenotstreet.org.
A portion of Huguenot Street will be closed to vehicular traffic during this event, from the 1799 LeFevre House (54 Huguenot Street) to the Freer House (98 Huguenot Street). Please note that addresses located beyond the 10-acre National Historic Landmark District are private residences that may or may not be participating in the event. Please be respectful and considerate of their properties.
For the first time ever, the New Paltz Halloween Parade will be adjusting its route to conclude on the grounds of Historic Huguenot Street. This beloved community tradition, which begins at the New Paltz Middle School Parking Lot (196 Main Street) at 6 PM on Halloween night, will make its way down Main Street, veering right onto North Front Street at The Elting Memorial Library. The jubilant jaunt will cross Route 32 with the support of the New Paltz Police Department and continue passed the iconic Jean Hasbrouck House. Participants will be invited to collect candy bars and apples from the New Paltz Rotary Club across the street from the DuBois Fort Visitor Center. From 6:30 - 7:30 PM, folks may enjoy live music, fun Halloween themed photo opportunities, delish food from local food trucks, and more. Activities will conclude immediately at 7:30 PM.
Post-parade activities are hosted in partnership with Historic Huguenot Street, the New Paltz Rotary Club, the Town of New Paltz, and the Village of New Paltz.
