The return of Haunt X in Pomona is always the first chance DIY haunters and Halloween enthusiasts will get to shop and prep for October.
With its unofficial motto “If it’s haunted and Halloween, it’s here!,” the expo returns to the Pomona Fairplex Saturday, Feb. 22 and Sunday, Feb. 23 and is made for Halloween enthusiasts and haunt lovers, featuring a hall of vendors, panels, and workshops.
After Saturday’s expo day, the Asylum Costume Party will feature DJ Joey “Fogitupfog” Olaerts. The party begins at 7:30 p.m. and will include a no host bar and appetizers. Costumes are encouraged, but no required. Tickets for the party are only available in advance.
Haunt X began in 2002 as DeathFest in Santa Maria, Calif. before being sold and moved to Las Vegas in 2004. Officially renamed Haunt X in 2006 and moved to Los Angeles, organizers have decided to make L.A. home.
