LA’s leading immersive event, Nights Of The Jack, the ultimate Halloween experience for the whole family, is back this year for the 5th year and promises to be bigger and brighter than ever. Welcoming over 100,000 people every year, greater LA area residents and celebrity fans alike are expected to visit Calabasas for the annual event, that includes thousands of hand-carved pumpkins, immersive scenes, nearly mile-long walking trail, premium food, beverages and cocktails and much more. Tickets go on sale on August 23, 2022 at 6:00am PT at NightsOfTheJack.com, and opening night is Friday, September 30, 2022.

Nights Of The Jack is Halloween fun for everyone. Adults, families and children alike are welcome and won’t want to miss this hair-raising feast for the senses. Spooky but never scary, kids will love the enchanted renditions of their favorite characters in pumpkin-form and have fun amongst the big multi-sensory scenes. Adults will appreciate the artistry and craftmanship of the elaborate sets and be able to enjoy alcohol from two full bars. Everyone can enjoy picking out Halloween gifts and light-up items from the souvenir shop.

Nights Of The Jack is hospitality-forward and offers a premium food and beverage experience, including some of LA’s best food trucks, such as Cousins Maine Lobster and Vivace Pizza. The Spookeasy is a high-end full bar and will have ample Halloween treats for adults, including top shelf spirits, cocktails, craft beer and wine. There will also be sweet treats, coffee, hot cider and cocoa nightly for everyone, with special additional dessert trucks on Wednesdays.

Thirty miles northwest of Hollywood, tucked in the Santa Monica Mountains, there’s a strange and shadowy wonderland that everyone’s been whispering about. This year, the immersive walking trail is back, and guests are encouraged follow the nearly a mile long trail at King Gillette Ranch, glimmering at every turn with blazing gourds around every corner. This season, the Nights of the Jack creative team has summoned jack o’ lanterns from every mystical sphere and devised a spook-tacular illuminated light show under the autumn sky and created new carves, new installations and tons of new photo moments.

Nights Of The Jack is also available for private events and corporate sponsorships and features a private 100-person VIP bar that can be closed off for private parties.
