Frequently Asked Questions

No idea what WeHo Halloween Carnaval is all about? Here are some helpful tidbits for your Carnaval queries. If your question isn’t completely answered, head to our full event information page HERE.


Is the event free? Do I need a ticket?
Halloween Carnaval is free and no tickets are required… Party on, bro!
Is it open to all ages?
While the event is open to the public, we recommend leaving kids and pets at home—it’s sure to get risqué and crowded.
Are there in and outs?
Yes. The Carnaval is pretty much a street party—attendees are free to walk the boulevard and pop into nearby venues for more festivities.

Where is the event?
WeHo Halloween Carnaval takes place on Santa Monica Boulevard (a part of historic Route 66), between N Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard. 
What time is the event?
The official Carnaval runs from 6 p.m to 11 p.m, but don’t fret! The celebrations continue well into the night inside nearby venues. Click HERE for a list of WeHo Halloween parties.


Is there live entertainment?
Duh! There’s a main stage in addition to a few other performance areas where artists play. The headliners and other acts are TBA, so stay tuned for updates!
Who’s performing?
We’re equally eager to find out, but the artist line-up is normally released a few weeks prior to Halloween. Past headliners include Boy George, Pink, and Robyn, so the bar is set pretty high for this year.
Is there a Queen?
Besides the many fabulous drag queen attendees, there is an official naming ceremony for Queen of The Carnaval every year. Past recipients include Rihanna, Queen Latifah, Lisa Vanderpump, oh... and Ryan Seacrest?!
Is there entertainment elsewhere?
When we say this is WeHo’s biggest and baddest party, we weren’t kidding. Plenty of WeHo venues host their own parties (and after-parties), so check out the list HERE.


How do I get there?
We highly (highly) encourage attendees to use a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft to the event. Don’t expect to get dropped off right at the Carnaval—there are road closures surrounding the boulevard.
We recommend using the passenger loading zones (designated from 6:00 p.m-2:00 a.m) on Santa Monica Boulevard just west of Orlando Avenue, and Melrose Avenue just east of Huntley Drive.
Is there parking?
Yes, public parking lots are available in the city, most charging $20. The surrounding traffic is a bit of a nightmare, so beware.
Can I take public transportation?
Yes, the free, safe, and easy way to get to the Halloween Carnaval is The Pickup, which will have a special route for this occasion. Similarly, Cityline will have a modified route for Halloween.
