Haunt Fest on Main Street


Oct 26, 2012
05:00 PM until 10:00 PM



Haunt Fest on Main Street is new and Exciting Event! This was formerly the Alley Cat Art Fest and Truck or Treat Car Show and has been combined to celebrate the kick off for the Centennial Event for the City of El Cajon in downtown El Cajon on Main Street! 


Don't miss this year's popular event featuring prominent artists, a juried art show, several bands which include 80’z All Stars and Eve Selis as well as numerous other local bands in various locations in downtown, a classic car show (Trunk or Treat for the kids), shopping, restaurant offerings, food trucks, wine and beer tastings.  Plus, a costume contest for young and old!  Come dressed in your favorite costume and enter the costume contests for fun and prizes.  This is family and kid-friendly event with Haunted House, Laser Tag and other kid activities.


This event provides a unique combination of community partnership, city, service groups and art excellence.  Sponsored by the Promenade District, City of El Cajon, and St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center and focused on building a vital art district in the downtown El Cajon community, Haunt Fest on Main Street has expanded to promote an event for Halloween fun, art lovers and community members alike to enjoy the galleries, music, cars, restaurants, and shops in the Downtown District.


The proceeds from the event will support Sophie's Art Gallery (gallery for people with developmental disabilities such as autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral palsy, etc.) and the funds will help continue the mural artwork and gallery openings in the Downtown Art District.  


The cost is free to attend the event; but tickets for wine, beer & food tasting in Arts Alley are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door (must be 21 for wine/beer tasting).
