Had such a fantastic time at the party. Your skills are absolutely amazing and you are very talented! Oh and FYI that headless horseman was amazing and the zombies scared me to death!

FIVE STARS! We saw an ad on Facebook about your party. We often travel to the Central Coast for mini vacations and wine tasting. My wife and I thought it would be a great getaway weekend and we’re big fans of Halloween, so we bought tickets. We were so glad we did. Your event was mind blowing. Incredible decorations. So many great costumes. We’ll be back next year!

About the Event

Each night boasts a unique experience (detailed below) for party-goers, with both nights offering guests an epic dance party, a Grand Costume Competition including cash prizes to the Scariest, Funniest, Sexiest, Most Original and Best Couple as determined by audience vote and a full ‘no-host’ bar serving beer, wine, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages for sale. A variety of food will also be available, for purchase, provided by Jimmy’s Watering Hole (vegetarian and gluten-free options will be offered). There are a limited number of reserved seats, at round banquet tables near the stage, with wait staff offering tableside service. Additionally, there are a limited number of campsites available at the fairgrounds, hookups not guaranteed however.

Do I Have To Wear a Costume?

Yes! This is a costume ball and costumes are mandatory to gain entrance. A T-Shirt that says, “This is my Halloween Costume” does not qualify. The magic of The Halloween Harvest Costume Ball is the originality and effort put on display by everyone involved, from our dedicated crew to the performers to each and every one who attend this event [security will not be in costume to differentiate from our attendees]. Some patrons make their costumes themselves, some have them made and others mix and match elements to craft something unique; creativity is the key. If you arrive without wearing a costume YOU WILL BE REFUSED ENTRY WITHOUT REFUND. NO EXCEPTIONS MADE. We will have a spooky vignette set up with a professional photographer toward the front of the venue to take photos of everyone in costume that will go on our website gallery after the event.

You might be wondering,"What's the difference between Friday and Saturday night?"

In addition to our Grand Costume Competition, Friday night will include live music performed by Central Coast’s most FUNKY band, Burning James and the Funky Flames.

Along with our Grand Costume Competition, Saturday night guests will get down at the Devilish Dance Party with D.J. Paul Thompson who will be rockin’ the house with fun Halloween-themed sounds and dance music that will keep the energy pumping all night long!

Street parking is available near the fairgrounds as well as a parking lot directly across from the fairgrounds for only $5.
