HALLOWEENFEST 2021
OCTOBER 30

Halloweenfest 2021 Event Details

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.

Join us this year for our 2021 Halloweenfest & Spooky Stroll Downtown Open House! For this event we will close our downtown streets to traffic to allow for our annual costume competition and parade, pet costume competition and parade, live music, virtual pumpkin carving contest, downtown trick or treating and more. Open streets will allow us to create a safe and fun environment for all participants and attendees, creating plenty of space for social distancing.

This year’s event will be held on October 30th, 10am-4pm, in the Heart of Brevard. More information is available below! 

For many years, Halloweenfest has been one of our community’s most anticipated and beloved events. Last year we were forced by the pandemic to cancel all major downtown events. Our special events require months of planning to ensure a fun and successful event for all and we have been planning since the spring to bring Halloweenfest once again to downtown.  With the health and safety of our community as our highest priority, we will continue to monitor the recent surge in the Delta Variant, determine the best strategies moving forward in light of this ever-changing situation, and make any warranted changes or cancellations to ensure the safety of our community.

HOB Spooky Stroll Registration Information

Halloweenfest we 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.

We’ve listened to the input from our downtown business community and are making changes to our events in an effort to better benefit our business community, but we can’t do it without you! We need your help to activate our streets and make Halloweenfest a fun event for attendees and participants alike.
