Spooky Stats to Keep You up at Night: The GenYZ Halloween Insights Deep Dive

With Halloween a little over a month away, brands are starting to roll out their creepy (or festive!) campaigns. Keep the following generation-specific insights in mind while you finalize your campaign or consider a quick social media activation. Beware…creepy but creative activations and frighteningly useful insights lie ahead!

1. Eating and giving out candy is a major component of most consumers’ Halloween. Build activations related to trick-or-treating activities and sweets for all ages, not just children.

What generations do on Halloween

2. While Gen Z and Millennials are most likely to describe their Halloween celebrations as lively and rowdy, 18-28 year-olds are the most likely to celebrate Halloween at a party. When targeting 18-28 year-olds, tap into these younger consumers’ exceptionalist tendencies with aspirational, lively party vibes. This approach is particularly well-suited for alcohol brands that have the right to play in the party space.

Which generations host or attend Halloween parties

Americans of all ages celebrate Halloween with a wide variety of activities, not only trick-or-treating and parties. Brands have numerous avenues to make themselves relevant such as home decorations, costumes, and haunted houses. Pursue options that allow your brand to seamlessly fit into the Halloween season.
