FAQs – good to read before you order

What about allergies?
Our facilities and products contain wheat,  dairy and egg products. While we may be able to offer allergy-free options in the future, this year we are not able to accommodate requests for alternates. We do not include nuts in our treat boxes, but the facilities where these products were made may not be nut free and therefore we cannot guarantee no cross contamination. Please contact us if you have any concerns.

Who can I share my treat box with?
Current health regulations require that only people who live in the same household can share a box, so if members of your party are from different households they will need to purchase a separate treat box experience.

What safety measures are in place to minimize the spread of COVID-19?
This event will take place outside. Pre-registration and staggered entry times, allowing for safe capacity and physical distancing. All staff wear masks. More of our COVID safety  measures can be found here.

How long can we stay?
Your experience gives you access to the Garden for up to two hours from your time of entry. As staggered entry is part of  COVID safety measures, please plan to arrive on time.

What should I wear?
To really get in the Halloween spirit we encourage you and your family to dress in costume. As this is a family event please refrain from any vulgar or distasteful costume wear. Please dress appropriately for this outside event. We recommended dressing in warm layers under your costume.

What is the cancellation policy?
There are no refunds or date transfers available for the Bootanical Halloween Treat Experience. If there is a severe weather warning issued by Environment Canada, the Garden may cancel / modify the event and will notify you of any changes by email.

Any rules I should know about?
You can help to keep the Garden a beautiful, special place by staying out of plant beds, and not picking any plant material. Important to remember: pets and smoking (of any kind) are not permitted at the Garden. Please check our Visitor Guidelines before you come.
