Wild West Hollywood’s Halloween Carnaval Guide

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — Each year, the City of West Hollywood hosts its incomparable Halloween Carnaval, one of the most unique- and crowded- Halloween gatherings in the world.

This year’s West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval will take place on Thursday, October 31 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on a one-mile stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard.

The event is free and open for all to enjoy, but children and pets are discouraged from attending due the inevitably dense crowds. Parking won’t be easy, either- while there are parking structures in the area, they won’t be cheap, and good luck getting in! We recommend checking out the designated ride share drop off locations here.

West Hollywood Carnaval 2018

West Hollywood’s Halloween Carnaval was launched in 1987 and is rooted in the foundation of the City’s diverse culture and community. The event has grown year-by-year into an annual gathering of phenomenal costumes, entertainment, culture, and self-expression with a myriad of observers, revelers, exhibitionists, and performers.

Be prepared to pack light: In order to ensure a safe Halloween Carnaval for everyone, the City of West Hollywood and the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station are reminding attendees about important safety guidelines:

  • No alcohol or public drinking will be allowed.

  • JFS has immediately cancelled all activities at the West Hollywood Comprehensive Services Center at Plummer Park until April 10, 2020 as a precaution to safeguard health and safety and JFS will make assessments as the situation evolves;
  • The JFS meal site will provide a frozen meal for each client coming to its meal sites on Monday, March 16, 2020 and Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and the organization anticipates providing additional meals for clients in order to minimize client contact and support recommendations for social distancing;
