How to Participate in Old School RuneScape’s 2023 Halloween Event
The Halloween event in Old School RuneScape began on October 18, 2023, and as of now has no announced end date. The event is welcoming to all player levels, and abilities. If you’re fresh off Tutorial Island, you can still come and enjoy everything that it has to offer.
Where to Start the Halloween 2023 Event
To start the event, players must head to the same location as the previous year. You will need to get to Varrock, and then look for the Costumed Child who is situated at the Great Cauldron. You can find the child by making your way to the location near the west Varrock bank.
Talk to the Costumed Child and they will give you a treat cauldron to fill with all of the goodies that you collect whilst trick-or-treating.
When talking to the Costumed Child you will be able to claim rewards from the previous Halloween OSRS events too.

Once you have your treat cauldron for trick-or-treating, you will need to wear three Halloween items which can be obtained by talking to the Costumed Child. Talking to them will bring up an interface with spooky items, and you can choose which ones that you wish to wear!
Once you are decked out in your Halloween finest, you will be able to trick-or-treat across Gielinor.
