First it was a Monster Bash, until it became WCKD. After a pandemic, it promised to rise from the dead. Awesome! Will there be a Halloween block party this year?
Presented by Elysian Brewing, spend a day in the Gaslamp with pumpkin themed brews, live entertainment, twisted experientials, squash-based foodie creations, hidden surprises and more! On the streets of the Gaslamp Quarter will be transformed into a gourd-geous mecca of all things nonsensical as misfits unite to celebrate brews, boos and beats.
Taps will be scattered through the venue with brews popping up in unexpected corners like the Ale Apothecary, Headless Horsemen Hideaway and Jack-O’s Tavern. In the ultimate keg tapping rivers of beer flow straight into your commemorative cup from the over 1000-pound giant pumpkin keg.
Food booths & trucks! Sample squash inspired flavors and vote on your favorite snack like caramelized onion and butternut squash pizza, pumpkin chili, pumpkin cheesecake and more!
