Spooky Swap Meet, the annual shopping event marking the halfway point to Halloween, is set to make its return to Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles, CA, on Saturday, April 29, and Sunday, April 30.

This year, Spooky Swap Meet is expected to have over 60 vendors offering selections of gothic furnishings, Halloween-inspired decor, apparel, props, and more. New for this year, the event will also feature an original walk-thru haunted attraction explicitly created for the event by Fear Farm. Fortune telling and food will also be available for purchase.

“We designed Spooky Swap Meet to allow for both guests and vendors to experience some ‘spring screaming,'” said Spooky Swap Meet Co-Creator Claire Dunlap. “As we enter our third year, we’re proud the event has become a tradition for sellers to clear out their storage units and share the spooky wealth with Halloween fans looking for treasures year-round, as well as getting to experience a little spookiness half-way between last October 31 and the next.”

Guests of all ages are encouraged to trick-or-treat at the seven stops of Heritage Square’s manors whose exteriors have been decorated and “spooked up” for the weekend by “house hosts” including AdamJessFx, Art’s Sideshow, a Bones’ Gulch and Samhain’s Lot collaboration, A Mr. He Slasher, LA Haunted Hayride, and Vamp & The Fiends. For those who like boogie, LVCRFT and Skeleton Sam will host a Halloween dance party at the top of each hour.
