October 28th, 10am-5pm

Presented by Brevard Insurance Agency

Count Dracula may not live full time in Transylvania County, but we’re pretty sure he clears his schedule every year for Heart of Brevard’s Halloweenfest, the trickiest, treat-iest, most spooktacular celebration around.

This “fang-tastic” event features FREE family-friendly fun, including bounce houses, our traditional costume competition and parade, the Magic Book Bus, a hula hoop dance party, the LEAF Easel Rider, food vendors and more. Join us for this amazing event and explore downtown Brevard’s businesses through a downtown Spooky Stroll Open House and downtown trick or treating!

This year’s event will be held on October 28th, 10am-5pm, in the Heart of Brevard.

New this year – Think Local pricing!

Everyone is encouraged to apply. Selected vendors are based on, but not limited to, the following criteria:

  • Our desire to offer a diverse, quality assortment of food/craft and retail options.
  • Rotation of previous vendors with new vendors to allow someone new an opportunity to vend as well as new options for our festival patrons.
  • Do you have previous history with us? Previous participation in Heart of Brevard events does not guarantee a space in future festivals.
  • Do you sell seasonal merchandise? Do you offer halloween costumes, masks, etc.? Apply for our spooktacular event.
