Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?

The Grapeyard is our annual Halloween event for Grapevine and surrounding neighbors hosted by the award winning Grapevine Parks & Recreation department. Our objective for this event is to be more than just another Halloween festival. We will have a full immersion Halloween experience for over 7,000 people, giving the community and surrounding areas a way to participate in fun activities but have bigger attractions that are unique to Halloween. We want to create memories that will go beyond the candy grab.

What are the hours?

We will be operating from 6pm – 11pm both Friday October 26th and Saturday October 27th.

Where is The GrapeYard Located?

Here is the GPS address: Oak Grove Soccer Fields, 1299 Oak Grove Loop North, Grapevine, TX 76051. We will be putting signs out to point you in the right direction as well because it is pretty buried out there close to the lake.

What happens if it rains?

Rain or Shine event. If the weather is too intense on Friday or Saturday we will have a rain make-up day on Sunday October 28th.

Does it cost to park?

Free parking

Do you need to buy tickets?

Yes this year we are charging $2 PER PERSON for Grapevine Residents starting August 2o USING COUPON CODE GPVRES and then ticket sales open up to all non-residents at $5 per person on Monday September 3. See the button at the top of the page to buy your tickets.  Limit 6 per household. YOU MUST PRESENT YOUR TICKET AT THE GATE EITHER PRINTED OR ON YOUR PHONE.

If you did not get your ticket through email please contact April Rogers.

Do any of the attractions contain loud noises, fog and strobe lights?

Yes. It wouldn’t be Halloween if some of our attractions didn’t have fog, strobes, lasers, loud noises and surprise scares. Attractions will have signs and be labeled on the park map so parents and people with medical conditions, any history of seizures or who have sensory sensitivities of any kind can make an informed decision about participating.

What should I wear?

We encourage all ages to come dressed in their best costumes, but 13 and up please no masks covering faces or hand props, we will ask you to put them back into your car. Since this event is outside we suggest you wear shoes that are comfortable and easy to walk-in. Flip flops and sandals might be difficult with some of the terrain you will encounter.

Is this suitable for young kids?

Yes we will have attractions that appeal to Halloween lovers of all ages and scare levels. You will be the judge of whether you or your child will be too scared for certain attractions.

Does The Grapeyard have food and drinks?

Yes we will have multiple vendors serving a variety of food choices. Check back later for more information on vendors.

Will any of the monsters touch me?

We have a “no touch” policy.  All of our actors and volunteers have been instructed to keep their hands to themselves and a safe distance away from any participant.  We do ask that you respect the rule of “you don’t touch us, we don’t touch you.”

Are you handicap accessible?

Though most of the The Grapeyard takes place in natural wooded and open spaces along the shores of Grapevine Lake with no hard surface material, most areas can be accessed using a wheelchair with reasonable effort/assistance. Due to the nature of the event, participants at The GrapeYard will experience various terrain, uneven surfaces, elevation changes, step up/step downs, low light, contact with tree limbs & other foliage. We will attempt to accommodate any accessibility issue or other special needs of participants to the extent that it does not compromise the safety and integrity of the attraction or experience.

What is not allowed at The Grapeyard?

Please no face masks or hand props for those ages 13 and up, we will ask you to put them back in your car. No outside food or beverage, pets or weapons.

I’m a member of the press and would like to cover The Grapeyard, whom do I contact?

Please email your requests to Amanda Rodriguez.

Will there be candy for the kids?

The Grapeyard this year is very activity based and will not have any candy available for the kids this year. We generally adhere to the candy being “earned” trick or treating with neighbors on Halloween!

If you have any questions we didn’t answer, email April Rogers or Meredith Shirley.
