Calabasas Pumpkin Festival

  • Sunday, October 16, 2022
  • 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Did you know that Calabasas got its name from the Spanish word  "Calabaza" meaning "'pumpkin" OR "gourd"? Local legend has it that explorer Juan Bautista de Anza was traveling through the area now known as Calabasas when suddenly, his wagon full of pumpkins overturned. A few months later, the area saw its first pumpkin patch!

More than 200 years later, the Calabasas community returns to Juan Bautista de Anza Park to celebrate its namesake with friends, family, fun, and pumpkins!  Shop the Marketplace, try a new pumpkin dish, dance and sing along to great bands, and pick your pumpkin in the pumpkin patch.  There is so much to explore at The Calabasas Pumpkin Festival Sunday, October 16, 2022, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm.

Halloween Movies at Hollywood Forever Cemetery

  • Saturdays in October
  • Tickets Required

Cinespia brings classic cult favorites to the hallowed resting place of Old Hollywood greats—and a couple of off-site screenings, too. For each movie you attend at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, pack a picnic (yes, booze is allowed), pose in the photo booth and enjoy DJ sets, dance parties and all sorts of other magical mischief that’d otherwise be strictly forbidden behind the cemetery gates. The outdoor screenings are an L.A. rite of passage, a quintessential summer experience and one of the best film venues in the city.
