SB Museum of Natural History Invites Adults to Frightful Fundraiser

On Saturday, October 29, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History will transform into a magical circus of spine-tingling surprises for adults 21 and over.

Guests who dare will crawl the Museum’s creepy halls and spooky woods in a progressive party. Costumes strongly encouraged.

Draughtsmen Aleworks, Cutler’s Artisan Spirits, and Final Girl Wines will ensure guests get into the Halloween spirit. Light bites from The Lark, Solvang Bakery, and DJ’s California Catering will provide sustenance along the way. All food and beverages are included with the ticket price.

Once deep into the Museum’s shadows, guests will meet frightful and delightful curiosities around each corner. At journey’s end, they will be rewarded with a spectacular finale under the big top, including libations, live music by Joystix, and other dazzling amusements.

Get creepy for the community during this frightening fundraiser; all net proceeds support the Museum’s nature and science education programs.

Tickets for Creep the Halls: Midnight Circus are available at

Generously sponsored by Matilija Water, American Riviera Bank, SPARK Creative Events, Cutler's Artisan Spirits, Draughtsmen Aleworks, Mystery Pix, Santa Barbara Independent, and Noozhawk.
