The event also hosts a Silent Auction to raise funds supporting SAFE Austin where shoppers and patrons can win one of many amazing items donated by the vendors and local businesses.

Beginning in 2014 at Spider House Ballroom with 15 vendors, Horror for the Holidays is a local success story, outgrowing venues year after year until the popular event demanded a space as fitting as Palmer Events Center. Event curator and Blood Over Texas President, Bunny Voodoo, stated: “Partnering with Palmer Events Center allows Horror for the Holidays to be fully realized and is the best way for us to reach the most horror fans and support local artists and businesses at the same time.”

Voodoo adds: “This event is family-friendly. Parents are asked to use discretion when bringing the wee ones; however, if you and your kids like Halloween, then you’re bound to have fun! The event will follow all recommended COVID safety protocols and city ordinances at the time of the event. Sanitation stations will be provided and masks are highly encouraged. We know horror and Halloween fans know how to rock a mask!”
