Halloween Events in Oxnard

Looking for a spooky good time this October? From haunted houses and trunk or treats to themed festivals and ghost tours, Oxnard has family-friendly Halloween events that everyone can enjoy!

The 13th Gate Asylum Presents UNFORESEEN

When: Select dates in October

Where: 1975 Lockwood St., Oxnard

Over 15,000 square foot of maze awaits you as you enter the UNFORESEEN. Once inside the maze you will not anticipate what lies ahead of you. The unrested occupants you encounter will be the least of your worries as you navigate the dark hallways that leave you totally disoriented. This years maze has absolutely nothing to do with a storyline, the rooms do not have anything in common, and that's how we like it. It's all fair game, and now it's time to play! This year YOUR FEARS WILL BE JUSTIFIED in the UNFORESEEN.

OPD Halloween Spooktacular

Heritage Square in downtown Oxnard has hosted various ghost themed tours on and off through its 27 years. This year we bring back this tour for one night only on Friday Oct 25th.

The tour starts with a visit with History Channel's celebrity star (from Pawn Stars), Doc Phineas. A meet and mingle with your group will include choice of wine or beer and appetizers with Doc before you take your guided tour. The primarily exterior tour (with select interiors), includes ghost stories, strange happenings and even historical colorful characters of Oxnard's past. Each tour is limited to 20 guests with pre reservations only. A complimentary ticket to the weekend Steampunk Fest is included in the tour ticket. $25 per guest. 21 and over only for this event due to some adult content.
