For its 5th year, ScareLA will be changing venues yet again, heading to the Los Angeles Convention Center for its show on August 5th and 6th, 2017. After spending two years at the Pasadena Convention Center, it seems the show is making way for expansion and trying to up their game a bit.

“2017 marks a milestone for ScareLA and our fifth year anniversary,” said Lora Ivanova, ScareLA Executive Producer and Founder. “To celebrate this occasion, we are brewing up an incredible mix of entertainment, and preparing for what is sure to be our biggest and best year yet. We are thrilled to welcome fans to our new home at the Los Angeles Convention Center, our city’s premier event venue. We believe our community deserves the very best and we are proud to take our place among the best shows in the country. ”

According to the press release, ScareLA’s 2017 theme, “Monsters Come Together,” celebrates diversity, unity and tolerance.

Created to bring people together in a celebration of the scary and unusual, the convention aims to build and strengthen community ties across diverse groups, backgrounds and interests, all united around the love for Halloween and creative expression.

This is an interesting move, and one we are curious about. We can’t wait to see how the show changes in this new venue. Spreading the show across two buildings, as Pasadena has done the last two years, hurt some of the offerings in my opinion. So, a new location should help change it up a bit.
