St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center and El Cajon Promenade District Present First Ever HauntFest on Main
This new event kicks off El Cajon’s centennial event and combines art, culture and Halloween festivities
HauntFest on Main is the combination of two separate events, the Promenade District’s Trunk or Treat and St. Madeline’s Alley Cat Art Walk with additions that make it a signature draw for the downtown district. “HauntFest gives us the opportunity to combine our popular kids Halloween show with wine, art, music and to support a great local charity,” said Jeff Davies, Executive Director of the Promenade District.
“HauntFest is highly-anticipated and will attract residents and visitors to Downtown El Cajon, which, in turn, will help support local businesses,”
HauntFest on Main will feature a classic car show (Trunk or Treat for the kids), shopping, restaurant offerings, food trucks, wine and beer tastings, and bands including “80z All Stars,” Eve Selis and several other local bands in various locations throughout Downtown El Cajon. This family- and kid-friendly event will have a haunted house, laser tag, a costume contest and other activities.
In addition to the myriad of activities taking place during “HauntFest,”
“This event provides a unique combination of community partnerships, local business appreciation, non-profit support and art excellence,”
Proceeds from this year’s event will support Sophie's Art Gallery (a gallery for people with developmental disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy), and the funds will help continue the mural artwork and gallery openings in the Downtown Art District of El Cajon.
The event is free to attend with tickets for wine, beer and food tasting in Arts Alley available for $20 in advance or $25 at the door. For vendor and ticket information, please visit http://hauntfestonmain.com/
