Tickets Now on Sale for Midsummer Scream’s Holiday Horror Convention
Pasadena, CA - Tickets are now on sale for Season’s Screamings, the spooky holiday treat served up by the team at Midsummer Scream, the world’s largest Halloween and horror convention!
Making its debut for the first time at the Pasadena Convention Center December 17th - 19th , 2021, Season’s Screamings will showcase more than 200 sinister vendors and artisans, the dark and foreboding Hall of Yuletide Spirits where haunters from across the Southland have whipped up a ghoulish assortment of mini attractions and displays, live (to use the term loosely) entertainment, and a dedicated stage where panels and presentations will be held throughout the event’s three-day celebration.
Tickets can be purchased at midsummerscream.org/seasons-screamings , including single day or weekend passes. Guests looking for a VIP experience can opt to join “The Naughty List” which included an hour early admission each day, a limited edition pin and credential, and other perks.
Season’s Screamings will be a shopper’s nightmare-come-true, featuring twisted apparel, artwork, handmade props, and holiday gifts from more than 200 vendors including Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, Rhode Montijo, Trick or Treat Studios, Miss Havisham's Curiosities, and Discount Cemetery. Gremlins and Gremlins 2 fans will have the opportunity to meet and adopt a Mogwai from the (human) star of the films, Zach Galligan throughout the weekend as well.
In keeping with the spirit of Midsummer Scream, Season’s Screamings introduces a brand-new darkened space - the Hall of Yuletide Spirits - where visitors come face-to-face with holiday horrors conjured up by some of the best haunters in Southern California. As guests wander in through a Dickens-inspired set featuring store fronts and a graveyard by CalHauntS, they will find ghostly “Christmas scarolers” and ominous characters from Force of Nature Productions and multiple walk-through attractions and displays such as The Cabin by Insane Haunt Productions, Holiday Fear by the Dreich Society, The Holiday Haunt with No Name… Yet, and Fear Farm’s Gingerbread House of Horrors.
“Fans of Midsummer Scream know that our iconic Hall of Shadows in Long Beach is a cornerstone of that event,” says Rick West, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Midsummer Scream. “With Season’s Screamings now the second large-scale annual show we produce, it felt only fitting that we give it its own darkened space filled with haunt goodness for fans to experience and enjoy, so the Hall of Yuletide Spirits was created. The Christmas and Halloween seasons go together beautifully; we are certain our guests will absolutely love experiencing the two holidays collide in Pasadena!”
Guests will find multiple photo op locations throughout Season’s Screamings, created by our partners at Leeanna Vamp and the Fiends, Bearded Lady’s Mystic Museum, Spooksieboo, Trick or Treat Studios, SpeedZone Los Angeles, and a special opportunity to meet and greet with actor Robert Mukes appearing as “Santa Mukes” to round-out your holiday wish list!
Live entertainment and fantastic performances will thrill guests all weekend, with Poltergeists and Paramours Christmas Spooktacular featuring a variety of performers kicking things off Friday night, December 17th, a Krampus procession each day through the Convention Center, and strolling Christmas Scarolers from Force of Nature Productions.
On the presentation stage, guests can sit in on panel discussions, performances, and live podcast recordings throughout the weekend. The lineup includes themed entertainment industry legend Garner Holt of Garner Holt Productions discussing helping bring Haunted Mansion Holiday to Disneyland, Fangoria’s Colors of the Dark live podcast recording as hosts hosts Rebekah McKendry and Elric Kane discuss Holiday Horror on Film, a special presentation of Krampus: The Devil You Don't Know with leading expert and Krampus LA founder Al Ridenour, and our Halloween 2021 Roundtable with haunt aficionados Rick West from Midsummer Scream, Shawn Marshall from Parks and Cons, Chloe Noelle from CloeIRL, and Josh Quillin, creator of Epic Home Haunts.
More presentations and announcements are yet to come in the days and weeks ahead!
