Join revelers from across the country for the Hawthorne Hotel’s annual Halloween Ball, "The H Files: Alien Invasion" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The event features a costume contest, stationed hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. The Ward Eights and multiple DJs will lift “spirits” on three floors of the hotel, playing music across all genres. Dance, people-watch, and enjoy being part of the premier Halloween event in New England. All ticket sales are non-transferrable and final. No refunds will be given. This is a 21+ event. Tickets do sell out fast so buy yours today!
Please note that we take the safety of our guests seriously. Assisting the hotel’s management team the night of the event are private security, police details and a fire marshal. Upon entering the building we will ask for your ID (no exceptions), check bags, and scan you with a metal detector. Wrist bands will then be given out. Backpacks, real and fake weapons, alcohol, and outside food and drinks of any kind are not permitted inside the hotel. Please leave them at home or in your vehicle. The Hawthorne Hotel is a non-smoking building. Wrist bands will allow you to re-enter the event. Cash bars (credit cards accepted) will be located on each level.
This is a costume party. You may wish to follow our theme, The H Files, or select a costume completely unrelated. A panel of judges will award prizes for Best Theme and Best Non-Theme costumes. Please refrain from incorporating real or fake weapons into your costumes, as these will not be allowed in the building. Also remember that this event draws upwards of 800 people, so you want to be sure you are comfortable and able to move about the hotel. If unsure if your costume is appropriate, please call the hotel at 978-825-4337.
This is a ticketed event. Non-ticket holders will not be allowed entry to the hotel. Please note that tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable. This is a 21+ event. If you are under 21, you will not be allowed to enter, even if you have purchased a ticket. Doors will open by 7:00 p.m. and last call is at 11:30 p.m.
Please be mindful that on Halloween weekend traffic in and out of Salem will be a challenge. We strongly recommend using public transportation. The Salem commuter rail station is 2 blocks from the hotel, and there is also the option of taking the Salem Ferry from Boston.
Unfortunately all of our hotel rooms are already sold out for this weekend.
