The rain has finally stopped, the sun is out and it’s officially the spookiest weekend of the year. Here’s what Fayetteville residents can get up to this weekend this Halloweekend.


Grab a socially distanced drink at Nightmare on Block Street. The Pinpoint Fayetteville owners have transformed the Fayetteville favorite into an ode to Halloween with themed drinks and decor. 

For those seeking their last minute frightening kicks, the Asylum Haunted House in Cave Springs will be open Friday & Saturday from 7 p.m. until midnight. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in person or online. Masks are required for entry.


With the seasonal move indoors coming Nov. 21, weekends on the square for the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market are dwindling. The Fayetteville staple will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Downtown Square. Patrons can find pumpkins, baked treats and handmade masks, among other goods. Face coverings and six-foot distancing are required at booths and while walking around.

Black Apple Hard Cider will be rounding out their Halloweek festivities with a costume party from 4-10 p.m. Those looking to get out of the house will get to be a part of a costume contest and enjoy mystery ciders. Social distancing guidelines will be in place and masks are required for attendees. 

Another Fayetteville favorite, Fossil Cove Brewing Co., is rolling out the spooky celebrations with a limited capacity costume party featuring new beers including the Pumpkin Ale, Scareodactyl Stout and a Coffee IPA. The party will also include food from Wicked Wood Fired Pizza and a performance from Ashtyn Barbaree. The party starts at 7 p.m. and tickets start at $25.

For those who are never too old for trick or treating, Crisis Brewing Company is hosting Trick or Treat for Grown Ups on Saturday. The first 100 customers (21-years-old and up) can draw for prizes when they get to the bar. Masks are required for attendees.


Fight the post-Halloween Sunday scaries with a little brunch action. Nomads Southtown, the Farmer’s Table, Prelude Breakfast Bar and any of the Arsaga’s locations are all Fayetteville classics. Social distancing and dining options can be found on their websites and social media pages.
