Bay Area Events Top Picks

Weekend guide for 10-29-2012 to 10-31-2012 by the Hauntmistress

Never fear, when the last weekend in October is over, there’s still plenty of fun to be had. Here are our Top Picks for fun from Oct. 29 through Halloween!

Milk Bar’s Costume Party in San Francisco on Oct. 29th features DJs, music, dancing, and more.

In Palo Alto on Oct. 29th Saint Mark’s Episcopal Church Halloween Concert features some Bach standards and a few other preludes and fugues (probably in minor keys!). Plus, there will be several other “groovy” pieces that you’ll probably recognize from your distant past.

A cross-cultural Halloween/Day of the Dead celebration awaits you at the Berkeley Farmers’ Market Halloween/Day of the Dead event on Oct. 30th featuring live music by Asheba, Aztec dance, free all ages costumes, and a Day of the Dead Altar.

On Oct. 30th in San Jose, Fahrenheit Halloween College Night features drink specials, beer pong, and more!

Also on Oct. 30th the Napa Valley Opera House presents Napa Tuesday Night Flicks: The Birds. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, The Birds does for our fine feathered friends what Psycho did for showers. Celebrate Halloween by watching this creepy flick!

San Francisco State University Faculty pianists Inara Morgenstern and Victoria Neve perform Halloween-themed music at the SFSU Scary Concert on Halloween day, an annual tradition for more than 20 years! Meanwhile, later that night Stanford University presents its own Halloween Concert featuring Jindong Cai conducting the Stanford Symphony and Giancarlo Aquilanti directing the Wind Ensemble for this annual program that’s sure to chill and thrill.

Studio 8 Halloween Trick or Treat in San Jose on Halloween night features music, dancing, drinks, and more!

Halloween Super Scene at the Bayfront Theater in San Francisco on Halloween is a fast-paced and hilarious theater competition featuring six directors creating six unique, completely improvised stories each with a unique tone or genre, but here’s the catch, every story in this special Halloween edition will be a subset of the Horror genre, and stories unfold one scene at a time, round by round. After each round, the audience gets to choose which stories continue on, and which story is eliminated, until the final round, where only one story remains and the Halloween Super Scene is performed.

Celebrate Halloween at SupperClub Beautiful Nightmare on Halloween night in San Francsico. Most creative costume wins a special prize. Plus, you’ll enjoy a complete haunted house with hundreds of props, 30-foot bone chilling projections, glow in the dark black light effect, complimentary champagne for the first 50 ladies, a photo booth, music by White Nights SF, and more!

Meanwhile over at 1015 Folsom, the Mad Hatters Ball features DJs Flosstradamus, Pantha du Prince, An-Ten-Nae, and more!

Vice Ultra Lounge Big & Exotic Halloween Party in Walnut Creek on Halloween night features a costume contest, live entertainment, professional male and female dancers, and more.

There are many more activities happening around the extended Bay Area, including trick or treat events sponsored by cities and shopping malls! Check out our map of pumpkin patches and haunted houses or our Events Calendar.
