Come forget about real life for a few hours at the special Halloween Edition of the Geek & Grub Market! Dress up in your favorite costume, and enjoy a free haunted house, haunted trail and fun competitions.
Remember to stop by our HQ booth where kids can get a free goodie, and you can find out more about our cool, FREE scavenger hunt! When you’re feeling thirsty, wet your whistle at our Geek Tavern with one of our signature nerdy, non-alcoholic drinks like the Vampire Blood Bag, Witches Brew or Butter Beer. After you grab a bite from the food trucks and vendors, don’t forget to check out all the wares our geeky merchants have brought just for you!
