Small group tour with Kane Hodder, RA Mihailoff, and Steve Nappe tasting Kentucky Bourbon that was distilled right down the street from where Scarefest is held every year! The event will start at 5:00pm Thursday October 20th and guests are asked to arrive at 4:30 to gather for the tour. There will be pours from 4 different barrels, and after the tasting concludes you can grab a cocktail at the bar with the guys! The tour is approximately half an hour, with one hour additionally to take in the view and have a delicious beverage with the Killers themselves! Very limited tickets, so grab yours today!
If you’re like the rest of us you can’t wait for The Scarefest to start. Cheat it a little and join Local Trivia Action as they bring Horror Trivia to LexLive. Sign-ups start at 6:30PM with Trivia running from 7 to 9 at the Corner Bar.
This event was a huge success last year and by far exceeded our hopes. Even if you’re not the Trivia type, this is where you will find your friends (and make new friends) on Thursday evening.
LexLive is the official Entertainment venue for Scarefest 2022. It is located at 301 South Broadway – which is on the front corner of the Central Bank Center parking lot just across the street from the convention.
Included with Admission:
1PM Sally’s Lullaby
1:15 Chateau Sauvignon: terroir
1:45 Monsters Aren’t Real

Ticketed Event: Our most successful add-on of 2021 back for its third big year!
Join your favorite movie killers throwing axes at Battle Axes new facility.
Shuttle service to and from the venue will be provided.
This event will sell out as each team only allows for 9 people! Join your celebrity team now as spectator tickets may not be available.
One of 2021’s most talked about After Party activities is back for 2022: Scaryoke!
We massively underestimated the popularity of this event amongst both our fans and our celebrities. This year it is headlining our Friday Night After Party. The music will start at 9PM with Scaryoke running until… well until the Corner Bar at LexLive throws us out.
Do you have Ax Throwing tickets? No worries. This event will just be hitting full stride when that event is over and everyone has returned to LexLive.

On the convention floor. Included with admission.
Cheyenne Moonshadow is back for another year of Horror Drag Theatre. This year we have moved the venue to the MAIN ENTERTAINMENT STAGE on the convention floor to give more of you an opportunity to witness the completely “over the top” production.
The Scarefest is well known beyond being The Premier Horror and Paranormal Convention in the country. We are also known for our famously fun Costume Ball and our legendary entertainment laden VIP Party. What would happen if we just took all that and crammed it into ONE HUGE NIGHT OF FUN?
Get ready for more than you will find at any other convention. We are taking over the LexLive entertainment complex across the street and filling it with everything Scarefest.
Last year The Scarefest did what had never been done (to our knowledge anyhow). We pulled together six horror and paranormal icons and had them GO BOWLING WITH FANS.
Yes, you will actually be bowling with a celebrity in an actual bowling alley. Caveate: Linnea Quigley jacked up her leg so she will be “coaching” her team.
The event will take place at LexLive to kick off LEXINGTON’S BIGGEST HALLOWEEN PARTY hosted by – of course – The Scarefest. Pick your celebrity. Join their team. Wear clean socks. Have an experience you will not find at another convention possibly ever.
