West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval


Each year, the City of West Hollywood hosts its elaborate Halloween Carnaval — one of the most unique Halloween gatherings in the world. With an estimated attendance of approximately 500,000 people, the Halloween Carnaval is the world’s largest Halloween festivity. Akin to Times Square in New York City on New Year’s Eve, it is one of Southern California’s largest events of any kind.

The Carnaval will take place on Monday, October 31, 2016 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard. Children and pets are discouraged from attending because of dense crowds.

The City invites Carnaval-goers to get into the spirit of The Creative City and show-off costumes by uploading photos to social media sites with the hashtag #wehohalloween.

Public parking for the West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval will be available at parking lots throughout West Hollywood.
