Events & Extras
Expo Hosted Events:
Halloween Costume Style Show
The Halloween Costume Style Show is one of the Expo's most popular events. Presented immediately at the close of the first day, attendees pack the main stage to see the newest and hottest costumes and licenses in the industry! Over 100 costumes are typically presented in an exciting and lively production. Previous shows have included pyrotechnics, aerial artists and mroe. Compimentary beverages are available during the show.
Saturday Night After-Party
Another popular staple of the Halloween & Party Expo is the Saturday Night After-Party, which takes place after the Style Show. Buyers and exhibitors are able to mingle at a unique local bar or restaurant, with giveaways, demos, DJS and drink tickets. Party-goers of previous events have won an Xbox 360 and an iPad Mini.
That Halloween & Party Expo often hosts exciting personalities who are involved in the Sexy costume, Party or Halloween industries. Previous special guests have included Chris March of Project Runway and Mad Fashion; Dina Manzo of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Dina's Party; DJ Paul D of Jersey Shore; and Playboy Playmate, Bridget Marquardt of The Girls Next Door.
