With big crowds and risqué costumes, WeHo’s biggest party of the year is a bit rowdy for innocent eyes. We do recommend leaving the kids and pets at home.
Since you can’t purchase or consume booze on the street, imbibe at the many Halloween parties. First timer? Make your way to The Abbey—you’ll thank us later ;).
Artist line-ups are announced in early October, so check back.

What to Expect
With 500,000+, Halloween Carnaval attracts very loud and very proud guests. Not a fan of crowds? Maybe you should head to your neighbor’s Halloween party.
With so many attending this epic event, traffic is a bitch (plus DUIs are not cool). Take a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft. Pro tip: don’t expect to get dropped off right at Santa Monica Boulevard—set your destination a few blocks away from the festival and walk.
Bring your costume 'A-game.' The competition is stiff, but we believe in you!
