Our 7th Annual Houston Halloween Festival will be taking place on Saturday, October 21, 2017, 5 pm to 10pm, on 19th Street in the Houston Heights. The festival will feature entertainment and activities for the entire family including live music, beer gardens, artist & business vendors, food trucks, a costume contest and a large Kids Zone for our youngest ghosts and ghouls. The kid’s zone will include a pumpkin patch, magician & juggling performances, carnival games, spin art, Halloween arts and crafts, kids cartoon characters, face painting, trick or treating, a kids costume contest and much more! The festival provides a fun and safe community environment for Houston families to celebrate Halloween. Last year, the festival had 7,000 participants and the HZW anticipates over 8,000 in 2017. 

All proceeds from this amazing event support our 2018 ‘Too Ghoul for School’ Scholarship Fund. We are giving $25,000 worth of scholarships away this year from the funds raised in 2016. For more information on the scholarship fund, go to www.tgfschool.org.
