Street Fairs & Festivals

Startling Halloween Fairs & Harvest Festivals

Here we’ve got a smorgasbord of wild Halloween street fairs, Halloween Carnivals, family pumpkin harvest festivals, autumn  celebrations and an eclectic set of Halloween contests throughout the Los Angeles area. Plenty of places to play in costume and experience the diversity of Halloween in LA. Hollywood has taught us all how to party… and thousands hit the local streets to strut their sequins. We’re listing everything from the big parties to the local Halloween events.

West Hollywood Halloween Carnival

Inormation updated for 2016This is the Halloween Street Fair and Costume Party to end all parties. It’s the ultimate block party — and that’s saying a lot for Los Angeles.

Halloween night Santa Monica Blvd. is closed down in West Hollywood and turned over to the the wildness of imagination. Half a million folks jam into West Hollywood.  You’ll see some of the most electrifying, strangest, daringest, gaudiest costumes to dare to strut down a public street. It has been titled “the largest Halloween street party in the world.”  Everyone comes out and parties together, large groups, singles, simple costumes, costumes with dozens of lights, hundreds of feathers, plain folks from all over, stars, everyone.

There are numerous stages set up with bands and other events as well. There will be a parade. Try for the $1000 first prize in their costume contest.

Most stores stay open late.  Restaurants and bars have special deals and their own events.  It’s a great place to come and play… you never know who or what you will see. There will be numerous stars just roaming the boulevard as well as total shocking silliness. This is an event for those who like to watch and be watched.

The City of West Hollywood on Halloween night is NOT for the kiddies… nor for anyone easily offended. Leave your inhibitions at home and party! It’s a no-holds-bared Mardi Gras fun night for adults. However, there are kid friendly events in the week before hand.

Nightmare City –  Horror Fest

Film / Music / Art

Nightmare City, at the intersection where horror, fantasy, science fiction and surrealism collide.  The Cinefamily, Cinespia and The Woodshed  have combined forces with other L.A. cultural organizations to present an ambitious schedule of events designed to terrorize horror buffs and tantalize non-traditional fans. Film premieres, concerts and live scores, rare 35-mm repertory screenings, magic and stagecraft, comedy and an exclusively curated black-light poster art show – in Nightmare City all these things come together in every possible permutation to create a unique festival which celebrates the cinema, music, and art of our darkest dreams.

20 days. 73 events, 6venues, 61 horror movies, 16 live shows, 6 LA film premieres,10 artists,and one Blacklight poster exhibition.
