SPOOK SHOW'S VENDOR/PERFORMER FAQs
What is Halloween Club's Spook Show?
2013 was the year that Halloween Club held its very first Spook Show outside of the La Mirada superstore location. This get-together for the local Halloween lifestyle community grew into a spooktacular must-do annual event to fill the void kindred spirits feel at the start of the year.
This fall, we're hosting the very best ghoul vendors to come recreate, sell, exhibit, shop, frolic, and celebrate the unique culture inspired by the ancient Halloween tradition at Halloween Club's 9th Annual Spook Show!
The Halloween festival will feature over 100 curated local vendors, artists, collectors, teachers, spook makers, and spookipreneurs for like-minded Halloween enthusiasts. Halloween Club will also hold its biggest sale event on 1000s of costumes, accessories, and decorations. Support local scary business growth, save the date: September 17th, 2022 RSVP for FREE here!!

The event will feature curated local vendors, artists, collectors, teachers, spook-makers, spookipreneurs for like-minded Halloween enthusiasts. Our goal is to showcase every year an exciting new unique mix of a variety of what constitutes Halloween culture. Registration found here.
We reserve the right to turn down too many of the same type vendors/exhibitors. If your organization/work isn't Halloween related, your vendor/exhibitor request won't be accepted. To be fair, prior participation doesn't guarantee confirmation for this event and appreciate your understanding. Please sign-up for future events here.
How soon will I know if I was accepted or not?
Approximately within 2 business weeks (BUT LIKELY LESS). We encourage you to signup for a SMS notification to ensure you're timely with payment/paperwork. We appreciate your patience during this time.
I was a vendor/exhibitor at your previous Spook Show(s). Why haven't I been chosen/notified yet?
To be fair to all talented spooksters, prior participation in Halloween Club's Spook Show doesn't confirm you for this event. Signing-up also doesn't guarantee your reservation for the event. Accepted vendors/exhibitors will receive a confirmation email up within 2 business weeks of signup. We appreciate you understanding this.
I’m with a hearse/spooky car club - do I fall under exhibitor? Also do I have to pay?
Yes, but you must be confirmed to do so. Confirmed hearse/car clubs will have reserved parking on the event day starting from 8am-10:30am. Please sign up as soon as possible as we've got extremely limited space for this.
I don’t live in Southern California, can I still apply?

Payment must be received within 2 DAYS to avoid a $60 late charge or risk having your application canceled altogether. You're required to submit the Secondary Application Checklist Form on the same day as payment.
I've been accepted, but my name doesn't appear on your featured vendor/exhibitor lists. How come?
Was your liability release form submitted? Did you provide high-resolution images? Or if you're a food vendor, did you email a copy of your registration/permit? If not, please check your confirmation email for the Secondary Application Checklist Form that is immediately required with payment.
Can I choose my vendor spot? Where will I be placed in the event arena?
