Halloween Night in Santa Cruz

Celebrated more than New Years Eve, Christmas and your birthday combined, Halloween is special in Santa Cruz. Here are some of your options:

  1. PAUL OAKENFOLD at The Catalyst. Considered by Rolling Stone magazine, CNN and other media sources as “One of the world’s leading DJs”, the Catalyst always is one of the top places to be for this holiday. Bonus: it’s downtown, where most of the weirdness happens and there’s a free Halloween party with Eliquate in the Atrium @ 7 pm.
  2. MONSTER BASH MASQUERADE : Another option if you’re interested in electronic music/DJs. This costume bash features OPIUO from Australia, LIBERATION MOVEMENT and tons of other DJs.
  3. DOWNTOWN SANTA CRUZ. Let’s face it…just being downtown at various locations is a trip. Costumes, music and crazies gather along Pacific Avenue.

No matter what your choice is for Halloween, be safe and keep your radio locked on The Great 88 for a spooky soundtrack to your night of fun.
