Scarefest 2022

Are you a fan of frights, food, and fun? Then make plans to attend the 2022 Scarefest Horror and Paranormal Convention. This frighteningly fun event starts today and goes through the weekend, 10/21/22 – 10/23/22, at the Central Bank Center in Lexington, Kentucky.  This year’s convention will present many unearthly celebrities, host over one hundred vendors, entertainers, includes a film festival, and a terrifyingly competitive costume contest. There is plenty of spooky fun to be had this weekend.

That’s right, Robert Englund will be attending this year’s convention. Horror fans rejoice for the chance to meet one of the foundational pillars of the slasher and psychological horror genres....
