  • 4:15 pm - Park Your Vehicle and Decorate your Trunk!
  • 5:00 pm - Trunk or Treat begins! Candy will be handed out from 5-6pm only
  • 6:00 pm - Trunks close but the fun continues with food, petting farm, games, crafts, rock climbing wall, etc.
  • 7:30pm - Time to head home with smiles from a fantastic Trunk or Treat!

What is Trunk or Treat? A great time for children to wear costumes, meet new friends, check out some “terrific trunks”, and collect candy, of course! Candy will be handed out from 5-6pm. We will then have food available, and other activities, including farm animals, games, crafts, rock climbing wall, etc. After the trunks close at 6pm, activities will continue until 7:30pm.

Invite your family, friends, and neighbors to come and enjoy, as we celebrate fall with food, games, crafts, petting farm and more!

Trunks Needed: 

Bring your TRUNK! Drive in, park your vehicle, open your trunk, and spread happy smiles as you hand out candy to 500+ children, and greet their families. If you’re feeling creative, show us! Decorate your trunk with family friendly decor (nothing scary, please)! (Trunks line-up and set up at 4:15pm, Trunk-or-Treat candy distribution is 5-6pm)

NEW THIS YEAR - We are asking if Trunk Hosts will consider providing an Allergy Friendly or Teal Pumpkin option for our Guests. This is certainly not mandatory, but we would like to consider our friends with allergy concerns. Sometimes people provide 2 different buckets and sometimes they offer only an allergy free option. There are many ideas out there. On the sign up, there are slots for dedicated Allergy Friendly Trunks, but ANYONE can provide the option of both.

Volunteers Needed:

VOLUNTEER! You can help us share the love of Jesus with the children by playing games, serving food, or making crafts with children. Choose the area where you would like to help – Indoor games, Outdoor games, Crafts, Food Prep, Food Serving, Set-up, Clean-up, Registration, or Parking Lot! We are also looking for someone to assist with this year's Canned Food Drive.

Helping out will make you smile (we’ll smile, too)!  If you have questions or other places you'd like to volunteer, contact St. Matthew Trunk-or-Treat: [email protected], or call 248-624-7676 ext. 127.

Candy Donations:

We ask those providing trunks to provide their own candy, but sometimes people run out with the hundreds of children coming through! Please let us know if you can donate candy to supplement the candy supply!

If you would like to provide an Allergy Friendly option, we happily welcome those also! Please label allergy / peanut free donations so we are made aware. Trinkets, pencils, etc. are a good option instead of candy too.

RSVP For the Fun:

Participate! Let us know your family is coming. Our party planners need to make sure we have enough food, candy, games, and crafts!


Contact St. Matthew Trunk-or-Treat Coordinator: [email protected] or call 248-624-7676 ext. 127.

We look forward to seeing you at Trunk or Treat!

PLEASE NOTE: This is a family community event. Please no political campaigning, and please help us maintain a family friendly, non-scary atmosphere. St. Matthew reserves the right to approve all trunk hosts.
