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, glitter galore and a freaky good time.
Located on Santa Monica Blvd between Doheny Dr and La Cienega Blvd, WeHo Halloween Carnaval takes over on October 31 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Make sure you’re energized—the parties continue in nearby venues all night long.
While the street party is free (no tickets required) and open to the public, it’s best to leave the kids and pets at home. Between large crowds and potential nip-slips, this celebration is on the naughty side.
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.
Alcohol isn’t served or allowed on the street, but don’t worry—you can hit up the participating bars lining Santa Monica Blvd. Rest assured, there will be killer drink specials to sustain your celebratory buzz into the wee hours. You can get your grub on at the many food trucks parked along the street—cheers to drunchies!
Before you go, remember to pack lightly—no backpacks, camera bags or totes allowed. Attendees are asked to carry items in clear plastic bags this year.
