Everyone knows that WeHo can throw a party, and the bossest and most bewitching one of the year is West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval. Indulge in some harmless debauchery with good-spirited attendees eager to show-off their killer costumes and revel in WeHo’s wild nightlife. The street party of 500,000 is a spectacle not to be missed; expect drag queens, muscle boys, lots of glitter and a freaking good time.
SPECIAL NOTE: No backpacks, camera bags or totes allowed. Revelers are asked to carry items in clear plastic bags this year.
Located on Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard, WeHo Halloween Carnaval takes over the street on October 31 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Don’t worry, the parties continue inside nearby venues well into the night.
While the street party is free (no tickets required) and open to the public, we recommend leaving the kids and pets at home. Between large crowds and potential nip-slips, this celebration can be a bit on the naughty side.
Alcohol isn’t served or allowed on the street, so be sure to patron the participating bars lining Santa Monica Boulevard. Rest assured, however, there will be killer drink specials to sustain your celebratory buzz all evening long. You can get your grub on at the many food trucks parked along the street—cheers to drunchies.
If the people-watching doesn’t sufficiently entertain, there are multiple music stages along the boulevard blasting live sets and DJ tracks. This year’s performers and Queen of Carnaval are still TBA, so stay tuned for updates.
