The staff of Haunted Illinois just wanted to remind you that Halloween is right around the corner and now is the time to start promoting your event! Why the big push to promote your event now? Two words… web traffic. In the past month, Haunted Illinois’ traffic has increased significantly, and it will skyrocket as Halloween approaches. This means that people are really gearing up for the holiday, looking online for information about Halloween-related events. Think of Haunted Illinois as an online billboard. If event listings are posted earlier, more people will see them.

Also keep in mind that as it gets closer to October, our event directory is the most visited page on the entire website. Let our prominent web presence work for you! Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to get your name out there and let people know about your worthwhile Halloween-related event.

Haunted Illinois is the most comprehensive and up-to-date Illinois Haunted Attraction Directory on the internet. To eliminate the possibility of listing old information, every season we reset the directory to zero events and start from scratch. We don’t let the listings roll over from year to year. If you see it on HauntedIllinois.com, you can rest assured that the information is current.

In fact, we just recently reset the event database. What does that mean? It means if you had listed with us in the past, you will need to resubmit your event information for 2008. Our Halloween Event Directory is starting to fill up nicely and we want to make sure that you to get in on the ground floor. To view more information about the events already in our directory, visit the following link:


Keep in mind that Haunted Illinois lists more than just Haunted Houses. Any Halloween-related event, as long as it is in Illinois, is welcome in our directory. If you run a Haunted House, Hayride, Haunted Trail, Home Haunt, Yard Display, Festival, Pumpkin Farm, Apple Orchard or other Halloween-related event, it can be listed in our directory!

The best part is that listing on HauntedIllinois.com is FREE!!! If you haven’t already done so this season, please submit your 2008 event information here:
