The average curfew for trick-or-treating in many towns in Wisconsin is between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Some towns uphold an earlier curfew. Local news listings, such as WSAW-TV, are a resource for finding trick-or-treating times for specific locations. Trick-or-treating curfews are determined by municipality and are not state mandated.
For example, trick-or-treating times for Halloween 2015 were from 4-7 p.m. in towns such as Abottsford, Arbor-Vitae, Marathon and Owen, Wisconsin. But in Neillsville, Wisconsin, it was observed from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Some towns, such as Antigo, merely stated that the ritual went until dark. Some cities also provided information for trick-or-treating in downtown business districts.
