Celebrate the 11th edition of San Francisco’s most elaborate Halloween spectacle at an extraordinary new venue, SVN West on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27, 2018.

The Bay Area’s premier Halloween celebration returns for an amazing eleventh edition with a brand new theme, look, and venue. Setting sail for two huge nights on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28, this year’s theme, Barco Fantasma will celebrate worldwide multinational Halloween culture in art, music, and costume. We will also celebrate San Francisco history by building this incredible event at the recently renovated SVN West, which from 1968-1971 was known as Fillmore West and is drenched in Bay Area music history. Three floors of incredible spaces, and an epic roof-deck will enable the art ninjas of Ghost Ship Halloween to create the most immersive, interactive experience in their decade-long history.

Since 2008, Ghost Ship Halloween has featured art installations, attractions, art-cars, stages, drag shows, sound systems and hundreds of musical acts that have drawn thousands from around the world. The past ten years the event has dropped jaws and thrilled thousands with unparalleled original art installations schemed and built from scratch from recyclable materials and enjoyed only at this event. 2018 will be the first at SVN West and the team is already hard at work on crafting a fresh new experience from the ground to the sky.

2-Day tickets on sale now!

The music lineup, and 1-day tickets will be unveiled at a later date TBA.

Stay tuned for future announcements regarding our art participants and music lineup!

// Please note that Ghost Ship Halloween has no relation in any way to the tragic 2016 Oakland warehouse fire. All association between our 10-year old San Francisco event and the space sometimes referred to as “Ghost Ship” are 100% coincidental. Regardless, our family joins with all communities in empathy and solidarity with those affected by this tragedy. Our commitment to patron safety and the employment of emerging artists is unsurpassed in the Bay Area and borne out by our flawless record. Ghost Ship Halloween will honor the Oakland warehouse fire victims and families by doing what we have always done: building art and spreading love. Hopefully a little love will help.
