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, treatiest, most spooktacular celebration around.
This “fangtastic” event features FREE family-friendly fun, including bounce houses, our traditional costume competition and parade, the Magic Book Bus, a hula hoop dance party, pumpkin carving contest, food vendors and more. This year’s event features a special “Get Set Sesame Street Party” and YOU are invited to meet visiting muppets throughout the day. 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 29th, 10am-3pm, in the Heart of Brevard. More information will be available soon!

HOB Spooky Stroll Downtown Open House Information
Halloweenfest will expand on the open house model we introduced in 2020 by closing some downtown streets and encouraging businesses to activate the spaces in front of their storefronts. We will NOT have retail vendors on our streets for Halloweenfest though we will offer a limited number of spaces to Nonprofit Vendors and Food Vendors. Open streets create a safe and fun environment for all participants and attendees with plenty of space for social distancing.
