Eek Out Over ScareLA Dates, Ticket Pre-Sale

The summertime scare-tacular to haunt the LA Convention Center in late August.

What to Know

  • Aug. 25 and 26, 2018
  • Los Angeles Convention Center
  • Pre-sale begins at midnight on Friday the 13th

Though there may be plenty of sunshine for the flowers, and breezes for the butterflies to ride, and warm mornings for all of the budding trees, there really is no rest for the wicked.

Not even in April.

At least, not with an April that happens to have a Friday the 13th. And all of those spring-sweet sunbeams and bird calls can't dispel some of the diabolical happenings brewing around Southern California, happenings that are very much oriented to a holiday that is still several months away.

ScareLA, though, a mega-mondo-monstrous convention devoted to preparing for that particular holiday, traditionally arrives a couple months ahead of Halloween, all to give fright fans time to work on their yard haunts, their ghost make-up, and their spooky costumes.

"A couple of months ahead of Halloween" is still a couple of months out from mid-April, but no matter: ScareLA has its telltale heart set on getting this eerie party started, and, to help that, it just announced the dates of its 2018 eek-tacular: Saturday, Aug. 25 and Sunday, Aug. 26.

The place where it will all hauntingly happen? Go over the cobwebby hill, and past the creepy castle, and arrive at the Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall K.
