Tricks & Treats

The Ghoulish Details

Is there a party in your future? Consider the following divine delights and pleasures and let the spirits direct your mouse to our ticket purchasing tab.

A Massive “Haunted House”

The Intellection of Lady Spider House is a new exhibition created for the AGA by Vancouver artist Geoffrey Farmer, which takes the form of his earliest memory of exhibition-making, a labyrinthine haunted house walk-through. Making a connection between the structure of a fun house and the form of the museum exhibition, Lady Spider House is sure to charm, beguile, and dare we say terrify you.


Do you harbour burning questions about your past, present, or future? Stop by one of our lounges for a tea leaf reading, or visit our fortune teller tent to see what the tarot has in store for you.

Frightening Film Program

Help yourself to some popcorn and settle into our theatre for a film set during the Victorian period. Don’t get too comfortable though. You are sure to shriek with fright as you come face-to-face with some of the most terrifying monsters imaginable.

(g)Host Bar and Gourmet Treats

Feast on an array of autumnal bites and food stations as well as sweets galore! Host bars are also included in ticket price.

DJ Mitchmatic

Mitch Holtby, A.K.A. Mitchmatic, is an emcee, produce and multi-instrumentalist. Through hundreds of shows, he has refined a particular blend of jazz and introspective hip-hop that has become his local and national calling-card. In addition to more commonly associated pursuits, Mitch harbours an expansive range of musical talent and is a frequent guest on many fellow musicians’ albums/projects.

Scavenger Hunt

How do you survive ‘All Hallow’s Eve’? By utilizing a creature survival kit, of course. Complete our scavenger hunt to acquire the necessary talismans and keep the ghouls and ghosts at bay.

Mask Making

Forgot your mask? Have no fear. Our staff will be more than pleased to help you conceal your identity and will assist you in the creation of a custom mask at our premium activity station.

Loot Bags

What would ‘All Hallows Eve’ be without tricks and treats? Our loot bags represent the best of both worlds and are sure to delight and mystify you.
