Spooky Swap Meet at Heritage Square Museum is a highly popular event! This event showcases over 60 vendors offering a diverse range of Halloween decor and props, including both used and new merchandise. Since its inception in 2021, the event has consistently sold out each day, highlighting its immense popularity among attendees.

So, the “Halfway-to-Halloween” celebration in Southern California is growing this year. What does that mean? The Spooky Swap Meet event at Heritage Square Museum will now span three days! The event will take place from Friday evening, April 26, to Sunday, April 28.

“The added Friday evening allows for an even spookier shopping experience, and for us to allow more people to enjoy Spooky Swap Meet.”

So, apart from shopping, visitors of all ages are invited to partake in trick-or-treating at the seven Victorian-era manors within Heritage Square. These manors have been creatively adorned and given a spooky makeover for the weekend by a handpicked group of professional and amateur haunted attraction designers. These designers include renowned names like LA Haunted Hayride, A Mr. He Slasher, Art’s Sideshow, and many others. This immersive experience adds an extra layer of excitement and Halloween spirit to the event.


There will be tons of vendors at this year’s Spooky Swap Meet event. Vendors include leading Halloween brands Trick or Treat Studios, Foxblood, and Strangecvlt. There will also be convention and online favorites Velvet Apparition, Discount Cemetery, and Black Magic Cakery selling selections of new and gently used items. What you may ask? Gothic furnishings, Halloween-inspired decor, baked goods, apparel, props, and more. Fortune telling and food will also be available for purchase.

You can even meet some of your favorite Horror celebs/influencers! Nikk Alcarez (@practicalparticularities), LeeAnna Vamp with Vamp & the Fiends (@vamp), and Vanessa Decker (@horror.vixen) will be in attendance.

Additional “mayhem and interruptions” are provided by LVCRFT and The Monster Kid Club (featuring Psychic Buster and Barry Under Your Bed).
