Coinciding with the six month countdown to Halloween aka “Half-o-ween”, Spooky Swap Meet returns to the hauntingly beautiful Heritage Square Museum for a macabre, curated shopping experience, including, new for this year, a walk-thru haunted attraction! Saturday and Sunday, April 29 and 30, 2023, from 10am-7pm on Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday.
Sixty plus vendors will have selections of gothic furnishings, Halloween inspired decor, apparel, props, and more. Fortune telling and food will also be available for purchase.
Guests of all ages are encouraged to trick-or-treat at the seven stops of Heritage Square’s manors whose exteriors have been decorated and “spooked up” for the weekend by “house hosts” including AdamJessFx, Art’s Sideshow, a Bones’ Gulch and Samhain’s Lot collaboration, A Mr. He Slasher, LA Haunted Hayride, and Vamp & The Fiends. The extra-daring can also walk-thru an original haunted attraction created especially for Spooky Swap Meet by Fear Farm. For those that like to boogie, LVCRFT and Skeleton Sam will host a Halloween dance party at the top of each hour.
Tickets on sale Friday, February 10 at 10am PST at spookyswapmeet.com. General admission is $18 for timed entries between 11am and 7pm Saturday, 10am and 5pm Sunday. The VIP ticket option allows for entry at 10am on Saturday, when ticket buyers will be the first to have access to the one of a kind offerings guaranteed to be made available by every vendor participating; cost $28.

Parking at Metro lot is first come, first served and limited. Neighborhood parking is also available.There will also be a few VIP parking spots for pre-purchase only ($25). There will be no entry or parking from the Homer Street side except for ADA with placards.
“We designed Spooky Swap Meet to allow for both guests and vendors to experience some ‘spring screaming’”, said Spooky Swap Meet Co-Creator Claire Dunlap. “As we enter our third year, we’re proud the event has become a tradition for sellers to clear out their storage units and share the spooky wealth with Halloween fans looking for treasures year round, as well as getting to experience a little spookiness half-way between last October 31st and the next.”
