Halloween Carnaval

The largest Halloween street party in the world happens in West Hollywood! Every year on October 31st, 500,000 people take to the streets of Santa Monica Blvd. to enjoy the wild costumes and uninhibited crowds at the West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval. The Carnaval features live entertainment on multiple stages, food vendors, and photo stations; and the bars along Santa Monica Blvd. take part with drink specials and patio parties. 

The 2015 West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, featuring the star of the film—legendary actor Tim Curry—as the Honorary Mayor of West Hollywood! The show has a long history in West Hollywood: its stage predecessor had its American premiere at the Roxy Theatre, and the film has become a beloved article of camp culture.

Boy George, the lead singer of Culture Club and a worldwide LGBT icon, performed on the main stage of the Carnaval. View our event information page for an in-depth look at the night's entertainment.
