downtown san diego gaslamp quarter parking

Been a scary seven months, so what’s a few more nights of terror? 

Just what the doctor ordered…



The Governor canceled trick-or-treating, but he can’t steal all the sweetness from Halloween. Never fear, the Gaslamp is here! 

This Halloween, the Gaslamp presents a haunting array of socially distanced, COVID-compliant entertainment offerings. Pick your poison — watch a phantasmagorical circus/magic/acrobat show, catch a horror flick or come for dinner and soak in the whole undead scene.

(Like stage blood, San Diego’s current COVID color is red. Going back to purple would be super scary, so please arrive in the Gaslamp wearing a mask and prepared to have a blast.)
