OCTOBER 6, 2018, 12PM-9PM

The festival is located on Baxter Avenue, between Highland Avenue and Winter Avenue. At only 3 years old, the Louisville Halloween Festival is the youngest portion of this annual event. Don't let it fool you though, it has quickly grown to be an incredible fall street festival with over 50 vendors, great local food, craft beer, live music, theatrical performances, contests and so much more! Even though the Louisville Halloween Parade is the crown jewel of the day, the Halloween Festival makes it an entire day of fun for the entire family.

For 2018, we have added an ALL NEW Family Fun Zone! The Family Fun Zone will have rides and inflatable for families to enjoy throughout the day. We have also added even more bands to the line-up for 2018, bringing some of the area's most talented musicians to the street on a beautiful stage surrounded by picnic tables and straw bails. In between the bands, we also have a number of contests that take place that are FREE to participate. We also have several performance groups that perform! One of the crowd favorites is the live performance of Michael Jackson's Thriller! Sit back, have a cold beer, eat good food and enjoy the incredible entertainment. We finish off the day with one of Louisville's BEST party bands to celebrate another successful year of the Louisville Halloween Parade & Festival.


Something else new for 2018, we have a complimentary trolley that you can ride to festival! Now you can park at various areas along the street (see map) and jump on the trolley to take it down to the festival. Or you can hop on and off to visit different stops along the route to visit different hot spots, like Hopcat, Osheas and Heine Brothers! Best of all...IT IS FREE! Courtesy of Miller Transportation.


The new Family Fun Zone is obviously one point of interest, with rides, inflatables and games. There is also tarot card reading, creepy escape rooms, face painting and so much more! You don't want to miss this event!
