We are a proud community of artists, creators, and entrepreneurs who share a love for Halloween, horror, and immersive entertainment. Together we give the SoCal scare industry a voice to be heard world-wide. ScareLA is created in Los Angeles for fans of all ages.
“The inspiration for ScareLA came during post-Halloween depression (yes, I love Halloween so much I get the blues when it’s over) 🙁 It seemed unfair to have to wait for an entire year to celebrate again. After launching the hit horror experience “Delusion” alongside Jon Braver and Neil Patrick Harris and working with Leonard Pickel, the “Godfather of Haunting,” on HAuNTcon, the longest running haunter’s convention, I wanted to create a place where the entire scare-loving community can come together – from fans to famous. By kicking off Halloween early in the summer, ScareLA extends the spooky season for scare enthusiasts of all ages in SoCal and beyond. See you there!”
