About:

Storybook Forest is presented by the City of Edmond’s Arcadia Lake and Edmond Electric.  It is a safe alternative to traditional trick or treating. There are no ghouls or goblins here. Children walk down a well-lit path in the woods and visit life-size scenes from classic storybooks to collect candy. Families can expect to see recreations inspired by well-loved tales like The Little Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe, The Three Little Pigs, and more! 

At the concession area, there are campfires for families to roast hotdogs and s’mores as well as a reading tent where kids can hear stories. Please note that due to COVID-19 safety precautions, we will not have a hayride or carnival game area for the 2020 event.

Storybook Forest is come-and-go anytime between 5:30 and 8:30 pm on each evening of the event. It is not required to arrive early or right at 5:30. No one will be allowed at the event site prior to 5:15 pm.

Please Note:

  • No outside food or drinks
  • No pets
  • Cash only at the event site

COVID-19 Safety Precautions:

  • Each storybook scene is manned and that staff member/volunteer will hand out candy while wearing a mask and gloves. Children are not allowed to reach into the candy.
  • Hand sanitizer stations are located at the concession, trail entrance, and trail end.
  • Staff/volunteers have access to hand sanitizer at each storybook scene.
  • Restrooms and frequently touched surfaces are sanitized regularly.
  • Firepits are spaced out and additional firepits have been added to better allow for social distancing.
  • The hayride and game area have been removed from this year's activities to reduce the bunching up of people.
  • Staff will hold guests in a vehicle line at the parking lot and allow a limited number of vehicles to park at a time in order to avoid a long line forming at the entrance of the trail. This will keep families together within their own vehicles while waiting to go down the trail rather than grouping in a line with others.
  • The line at the entrance is marked to allow for social distancing.
  • A limited number of participants are allowed at the event each night. Tickets must be purchased in advance in order to restrict attendance.
  • All adults are encouraged to wear masks.
