Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018

Halloween officially takes place in 16 days. That means trick-or-treating happens on a school night (Wednesday, this year). Ventura officials believe it’s slightly inhumane to make kids or parents wait that long. Celebrate Halloween with more treats and fewer tricks at the Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018. And it takes place on the Saturday before Halloween. So, you’ll have a day to recover from your candy hangover before the kids head back to school and you go back to work.

Enjoy a safe and sane preview of Halloween night when you come to the Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018, with treats, live entertainment & a movie.

What: Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018
Where: Mission Park & 200 Block of Main St
When: Saturday, October 27th, 11 am to 9 pm
Admission: FREE

Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018

Not interested in going door-to-door, begging for treats? Want a safe alternative to celebrate the Halloween holiday? Or are you just looking for a reason to to wear a costume more than one time a year? Then come to the Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018 on Saturday, October 27th. Guests enjoy holiday-themed arts and crafts, carnival games, jump houses, a costume contest, and even a pirate ship.

Of course, there will be trick-or-treating from businesses in the downtown Ventura area. Just look for a pumpkin sign in the window. This signals that treats await inside. For the daredevils, enter the haunted house at your own risk. Watch or join the pie-eating contest. When you get hungry, visit one of the food trucks on-site. Several raffles and a silent auction offer amazing prizes. And admission is absolutely free (raffle tickets will cost you, though).

After the sun goes down, the movie screen goes up. Stay in Mission Park for a free outdoor screening of A Nightmare Before Christmas. Bring a blanket or lawn chair with you to enjoy the movie in comfort.

Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018 Costume Contest

The spooktacular costume contest is open to all ages. Yes, Mom and Dad. You can dress up for fun and prizes, too! The contest begins at 3 pm and breaks down into five separate age groups. The top three costumes in each age group receive an award at the end of the event. The age breakdown is:

  • infant to 3
  • 4 to 7
  • 8 to 12
  • 13 to 17
  • 18+

Dress up in your favorite costume (group or individual). Grab your treat bag. Then, head over to the Ventura Harvest Moon Spooktacular 2018 for family-friendly fun to whet your Halloween appetite.

Ventura Harvest Festival 2018

This weekend, the Ventura Harvest Festival 2018 takes over the Ventura County Fairgrounds. Guests enjoy live music both on-stage and strolling around the grounds. Hundreds of local artists and artisans showcase their best handmade arts and crafts in three huge buildings. It’s never too early to start checking off items on your Christmas shopping list. You’ll find everything from jewelry to clothing, blown glass to ceramics, and so much more. Find a one-of-a-kind gift for that one-of-a-kind person in your life.

Learn how to make your own holiday ornaments or other knick-knacks with live demonstrations. Want to create the perfect holiday feast? Get ideas from vendors on-site courtesy of their cooking demos. You’re sure to be a hit at any party you throw or attend this holiday season.

And the festival hasn’t forgotten about the kids. Let them blow off steam in the Kids’ Zone. They’ll even have the opportunity to seek out some jack-o-lantern fodder in the pumpkin patch. Clean it out well and seal it with a watered down bleach solution and/or vaseline. That helps preserve it for much longer.
