The Midsummer Scream 2018 Box Office is ALIVE!

Tickets for Midsummer Scream 2018 are now on sale at including single-day General Admission passes to the brand-new, limited-edition Gold Bat Weekend Pass, which enables guests to access the show floor and other aspects of Midsummer Scream an hour early each day before the convention opens to the general public; front of line priority access to panel presentations and attractions throughout the venue; a collectible lanyard and credential; and a Gold Bat enamel pin.

The world’s largest Halloween and horror fan convention returns to Southern California July 28-29 for an unforgettable weekend of thrills, chills, and frightful fun all under one roof at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center.

Marking its third year, Midsummer Scream is expected to draw nearly 25,000 fans of all things Halloween and horror to Long Beach, where they will find a huge show floor featuring more than 200 unique vendors, a children’s activity area, a wide variety of live entertainment performances, celebrity appearances, a black cat adoption lounge, educational classes and programs, thousands of cosplayers in amazing costumes; world-class panels and presentations; and more than a dozen haunted attractions and elaborate displays for guests to experience.

Midsummer Scream is thrilled to announce the return of industry giants Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights, Knott’s Scary Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain Fright Fest, and Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor. These cornerstone presentations will take place throughout the weekend on the main stage, attended by thousands of hard core fans ready for the latest and greatest season announcements from these juggernauts of Halloween!

The vendor floor and Hall of Shadows will now each have their own individual halls at the Long Beach Convention Center. Featuring more than a dozen walk-through haunts and attractions, as well as creepy displays, roaming monsters, billowing fog, dark vendors, and a large performance stage, Hall of Shadows is once again the home of the Decayed Brigade sliders team, which will perform several shows daily throughout the weekend.

This year’s Midsummer Scream will also be commemorating the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and will play host to Slashback Video, the art exhibit which recreated an ’80s era video rental store inside of Bearded Lady’s Mystic Museum last year.

2018 confirmed special guests include Kimberly J. Brown, star of the “Halloweentown” series of Disney Channel Movies; Buzzfeed Unsolved hosts Ryan Bergara and Shane Madej; and the hosts of the Shock Waves podcast.

As in years past more programming and additional guests will continue to be announced leading up to the event.
