ABOUT US

A Festival For Ghouls and Goblins of All Ages

How-To Halloween is a family-friendly festival that celebrates creativity, imagination and the innovative spirit by showcasing an exhibit hall packed with theatrical displays, interactive games, unique vendors and amazing entertainment!  We ‘Frankenstein’ together the best parts of a Maker Faire, Comic Con, Craft Show, Science Museum, Music Festival and Halloween Carnival to create monstrous fun for everyone. Our mission is to inspire kids and the ‘kids at heart’ to make something spooktacular for the holiday and get excited about the creative process as they explore the many hands-on activities, how-to sessions and immersive experiences.

We have a spider-rific theme planned for our eighth annual event! You can meet Spidey and his amazing friends from The League of Enchantment, and test your superpowers as you scale our 20ft tall climbing wall. The award winning power-pop band The Shake Ups will be performing live on our main stage dressed as your favorite cartoon characters. Also included is the return of the Downtown Lansing Zombie Walk as the horde of undead invade the city and make their way from the Lansing Center to the Capitol for a frightfully fantastic photo op.  And as always, there is trick-or-treating for the kids, costume contests with big prizes, and we’ll be supporting many local non-profits and charities such as the Lansing Makers Network, the Greater Lansing Food Bank and Make-A-Wish.

Advance tickets are only $5, and the Day Of Show price is $10 at the door (kids 2 and under enter for free) with a special family rate “buy five, get one free.” So break out your best homemade costumes, bring your friends and be part of this un-boo-lievable event.

Please contact us if you have any questions or if you’d like to participate as a vendor, exhibitor, entertainer, volunteer or sponsor of How-To Halloween, and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday October 22nd and Sunday October 23rd from 11am-5pm at the Lansing Center.

Happy Halloween! - from ROBOT PUMPKIN
