Each year, the City of West Hollywood hosts its incomparable Halloween Carnaval — one of the most unique Halloween gatherings in the world. With an estimated attendance of several hundred thousand 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.
This year’s Halloween Carnaval will celebrate the disco era that paved the way to the City’s incorporation in 1984. Staged over a one-mile stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard/Historic Route 66, this year’s Halloween Carnaval will feature several areas with live DJs who will entertain wildly dressed crowds for a five-hour one-of-a-kind experience.
The West Hollywood Halloween 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.
Public parking for the West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval will be available at parking lots throughout West Hollywood.
