Halloween Parties in Prague 2011

Have a devilish time at this year’s spooky events!

Halloween, or All Hallows’ Eve, dates way back. Many Historians attribute the origins of the celebration to the Roman feast of Pomona, (the goddess of fruits and seeds) or perhaps from the festival of the dead called Parentalia. Either way, by the late 19th century it had become traditional for those observing the festival to dress up in guises. Devils, angels, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and monsters were all popular choices. By the early 20th century, Halloween parties had become such a popular event that companies were mass-producing costumes and goodies for Halloweeners of all ages.

In keeping with the All Hallows’ Eve traditions, on Halloween weekend in Prague there will be a number of parties and events at which you can enjoy the late October festivities!

Dead Souls Night
Friday October 28th
Iron Curtain (Propaganda)
Michalská 12, 110 00 Prague 1

On Friday the 28th, Iron Curtain welcomes Dead Souls for the appropriately-named Dead Souls Night. DJ Stevie Weenie will perform into the wee hours. A 125 CZK entrance fee includes a free drink; costumes are ‘encouraged but not required’.

Key words: Rock music, optional costume, late night DJ, late night music, weekender 

Blaq Mummy Halloween Saturday

Friday is a public holiday in the Czech Republic, so what better way to start the weekend early than by joining the spooky festivities down at Retro Music Hall on Thursday.

Monday October 31st 2011
Lucerna Music Bar
Vodičkova 36, Prague 1

Advertise with Expats.cz

Lucerna Music Bar offers the unimaginatively-named Halloween event on Monday night. Halloween is an evening of live music from the Gallic band Bran. The seven-piece band will have support from Czech-based M3 and Rond, who have gathered a large following within the Republic thanks to their Celtic sounds. Lucerna’s Halloween event is far more traditional than the others. My research showed no evidence of competitions or prizes for the best costume. Not even apple bobbing! Which lead me to believe that this isn’t really a costume affair. So be warned, you may end up being the only skeleton or witch at the party!

Eat The Peach (Halloween Special Indie Disco)
Saturday October 22nd 2011
Peach Pit
Budečská 22, Prague 2

From the guys behind the popular & progressive Loud Noises podcast comes the All Hallows Eat The Peach indie Disco special. The basic premise of the evening is loud indie music, very cheap alcohol, 90s-style interior (which is a permanent fixture in the Peach Pit!) and crazy dance moves. Entry to this casually cool event is free, outlandish costumes are optional but black garments are encouraged. Check out the regular Loud Noises Podcast to get a taste of what’s in store for the Halloween Special. Strong language and opinions which are not fully endorsed by Expats.cz await.
