Transylvania, Romania might be the origin of Count Dracula's character, but Transylvania County and Brevard have the best celebration! (And it's the closest Transylvania there is!) We have a full day's worth of family fun and light-hearted celebration planned for the spookiest day of the year! The annual Flight of the Vampire 5K, 10K, and Children’s Fun Run takes off in the morning from the American Legion Hall. Watch as vampires, zombies, and ghosts (disguised as runners) make their rounds around town. Heart of Brevard’s street festival, which opens at 10:00 am in downtown Brevard, will be sure to give everyone goosebumps! Come in costume, of course, and be a part of our annual Costume Contest and Parade. We'll have special recognition for all ages! If you are a spook with cooking skills, enter our Proper Pot Bake-off to win bragging rights (and prizes!) for the best apple or pumpkin concoctions. Come prepared to give up your blood at the Bloodmobile! This year we welcome The Blood Connection to Halloweenfest – who will be collecting supplies for Transylvania Regional Hospital! Pumpkin Carving, Boo-T-Ful Me Fashion Show, Ghost Walking Tours, Haunted House, Pumpkin Roll and so many other things are what you will find at the 33rd annual Halloweenfest!
After enjoying the day downtown, rev up for a delightful evening. As the evening cool settles in and the shadows get long, we invite you to join us for Brevard's own 4th Annual Beer Garden!! Sponsored by Oskar Blues brewery, and featuring local brews by OB and Brevard Brewing Co., it begins at 3:00 pm with live music on the E. Main St. stage from Pretty Little Goat, Ol’Dirty Bathtub, Empire Strikes Brass, Low Cut Connie, and Big Daddy Love. There will be plenty of eats, as well! So – take your kids trick or treating and then come back and enjoy your favorite local beer and free music!
Everyone is sure to find something to please on this Spooktacular Halloweenfest in Transylvania County!!
