ScareFest, it’s not just a convention…. It’s a Thrill Seeking Quest
The official opening to ScareFest 2016 on Friday, September 30th, will start out with a grand Black Carpet arrival of the celebrities. There will be photographers and TV news cameras from all over Kentucky to capture the stars’ arrivals for the media to show on the 6:00 news. Once the celebrities and speakers have entered ScareFest, the Platinum and Golden Ticket holders will continue on the Black Carpet into ScareFest for their one hour pre-show arrival.
The ScareFest Exhibit Hall now includes an 82,000 square foot area where ScareFest will house over 200 different and unique dealers, offering the strange and bizarre in the horror theme, along with the weird and unusual mystic items from the paranormal and metaphysical merchants. Some offer unique experiences like closing you up in a coffin, or letting you hold very large creepy bugs, or being electrocuted in an electric chair, or drawing you as a zombie, or taking a picture of the color aura around you.
During all three days of ScareFest there will be FREE seminars, workshops, panels, and a top-notch magic show for your enjoyment and entertainment.
Friday is also our Hero Day and all military, police officers, firemen/women, and EMT will be allowed FREE access with a photo ID.
If you are in the mood for more horror fun, you can join the staff of ghouls and 10 foot tall monsters at the Wicked World attraction. It is only 6 miles down the road to this haunted attraction where you can get your scream on.
The weekend includes the Platinum/Golden VIP Party, being held TBA and hosted by Patti Starr. There will be drink specials for our fans and stars at the cash bar, one for mixed drinks and another for beer only. The VIP Party will be held Friday, September 30th, from 10:00 pm until 1:00 am. You must be 21 or older to attend the VIP Party.
Saturday starts all over again with much of the same as Friday; so you can go to the dealers, seminars, panels, workshops, film previews and other shows you might have missed on Friday. We have so much to offer that it might take hours, or even days of fun, to go through everything.
Since ScareFest is all about fun and fantasy, feel free to promenade the aisles in your favorite character costume from your favorite movie, show or book. Meet with the stars and producers in your ghoulish best, and maybe you too will be discovered for a future horror flick.
If you don’t want to wear your costume during the day; you can return with your guise and join the Costume Ball, FREE to our ScareFest fans. The Costume Ball will be on Saturday, October 1, 2016. Will you be the one to win the best costume?
After you leave the Costume Ball, you have other options to choose from. The Kentucky Theatre is playing horror movies from midnight until 2:00 am. The theater has discounted their tickets for all ScareFest Con fans.
Once Sunday arrives, you will still get to choose from many different events to enjoy on the last day. Last year was our first year to have Kids Day and it was an awesome hit. There will be crafts, kids costume contest, entertainment and so much for fun planned. All kids 10 and under have free admission to ScareFest when accompanied with an adult. Sunday is also a time to get last shots with your favorite stars and phone numbers and emails from new friends you made while at ScareFest. We hope you will fill out our questionnaire so we will know what you liked the best and what you would like to see happen for next year at ScareFest .
After you leave for home, you will have created unforgettable memories at this year’s ScareFest . We hope that after all the fun you had at ScareFest; you will make ScareFest your Vacation Destination for 2017.
