As haunters we understand the love and dedication that goes into each and every haunt we choose to devote our Halloween season for. As well, we know there are many haunted attraction enthusiasts who would love to work for their local haunt(s) but have no idea what is expected or how to go about getting into the industry. To both the haunter and the “future” haunter we say… THE HAUNT-FAIRE EVENT IS FOR YOU!

Kreepfest is something of an Un-convention. A gathering of Halloween enthusiasts and Haunters that is more like a family reunion than a trade show. From Friday’s bad movie night to Saturday’s demos, games, vendors, contests, potluck lunch and show-and-tell. From Saturday night’s Zombie Prom to Sunday’s Make-and-Take-A-Palooza. These are just a few more of the things you can look forward to at Kreepfest.
