Description

World's largest Halloween and horror convention, bringing all the chills and thrills of October to one summer weekend. Explore multiple haunted attractions in the Hall of Shadows; shop from more than 350 vendors including horror-themed apparel, creepy home decor, special effects makeup, masks and costumes; enjoy panels and presentations from the leading names in horror entertainment and theme park attractions; live dark entertainment, and more. 

Only at Midsummer Scream will Halloween lovers be able to get a first look at plans for Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Halloween Horror Nights”; the 50th anniversary of Knott’s Scary Farm at Knott’s Berry Farm; Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Fright Fest, which marks its 30th year; the 100th anniversary of the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose; and attractions from 13th Floor Entertainment, including Delusion, Shaqtoberfest and L.A. Haunted Hayride.

There will also be a special “Hot Haunts for Halloween” panel, hosted by Midsummer Scream’s Creative Director and Co-Founder Rick West, that brings together some of the best of the grass-roots community of talented haunters — home haunters, local attractions, and traditions that are, in many ways, the inspiration for the largest of the haunts.

“Haunted attractions of every type and size are at the very core of what Midsummer Scream is all about, from the most elaborate to the most handmade, whether family friendly or truly extreme,” West said. “Midsummer Scream fans love to discover what’s new and exciting for the Halloween season ahead, and it’s incredibly exciting to be able to bring all of these attractions together to begin a countdown to the best night of the year.”
