Halloween Tours and Shows

Sinister Screenings, Macabre Museums, Ghoulish Graveyards, Ghastly Galleries, Terrifying Tours, Perilous Plays & Ectoplasmic Exhibitions

grainy graveyard

Here you will find macabre midnight ramblings among gravestones and historical landmarks, along with demented dramas performed in unconventional locations. If you enjoy the spooky thrill of wandering through ominous outdoor locations and/or allegedly haunted premises, of if prefer actors on the other side of the proscenium arch (not jumping out at you), this is the place for you.

This grouping of performances and tours might at first seem odd, but there is a method to our madness: There is a Los Angeles tradition of Halloween plays staged in outdoor locations, requiring the audience to walk through cemeteries or the like, turning the experience into a tour of a kind; also, events like the Strathearn Park Ghost Tour combine elements of a historical tour with live performance.

Also included are other Halloween-themed shows, including exhibitions of Halloween Art.

The latter sometimes rebrands itself as a Halloween event during October, but you can see many of the same displays throughout the other months.
