WELCOME 

HORROR FOR THE HOLIDAYS Holiday Horror Expo is especially made for horror fans and features hordes of vendors selling horror, gothic and dark merchandise. Art, home decor, clothing, jewelry, accessories, collectibles, gifts and more. You're bound to find the perfect gift for that horror junkie, goth, weirdo fiend of yours this holiday season — including  yourself. Horror For The Holidays is the biggest and longest running horror-themed holiday market in Austin and celebrates it's 10th year in 2024. It has been a grass-roots event from the beginning that has grown to epic proportions and we thank our vendors and guests for making this event such a success.

And if the killer shopping wasn't enough, we've added tons of creeptastic, and family friendly, attractions to make it the best holiday horror weekend in town. Get your pic with Evil Santa, Watch the epic Krampus Parade, Meet your favorite horror celebrities and MORE!
