Kicking off at 12PM, guests can trick-or-treat Smorgasburg-style and visit the 40+ festively decorated vendor booths offering individualized unique food offerings and specials.
From 4PM-5:30PM, guests are invited to watch or participate in the official Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume Contest — an opportunity for your favorite pup to strut its stuff on the runway and win the best prizes. The dog costume contest will be judged by a panel of celebrity judges including South Beach Wine & Food Festival Founder/CEO, Lee Schrager; CBS News lifestyle reporter Lisa Petrillo; and Miami New Times food and spirits editor, Laine Doss; with Yelp’s very own Diandra Lamas at Emcee. To enroll your furry friend in the costume contest, visit @SmorgasburgMiami on Instagram for more details.
As if that wasn’t enough, from 3PM-7PM there will be live music courtesy of Wynwood School of Music. Human attendees are welcome to participate in a people-dressed-like-food contest as well; just show up dressed to thrill any time that day and visit the info booth at Smorgasburg to get your picture taken. The winner will be announced via social media. Prizes include gift cards courtesy of Smorgasburg & Wild Fork. Smorgasburg partners with their own food rescue initiative on a regular basis, Buddy System MIA, who will also be onsite.
The multi-faceted event begins as the storied horseman embarks on a journey to find his missing head with a canter into the Village. All guests are encouraged to catch a glimpse of the Headless Horseman at 7 p.m., rearing his horse as he enters a spooky fog-filled entrance at the Gulfstream Park Walking Ring before haunting guests at the start of the evening.
After spotting the Headless Horseman, keep an eye out for a series of flash mobs. These hidden-in-plain-sight performers will transform themselves into a dancing mob of ghoulish tricksters throughout the night, between 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Their performances will be splashed against a backdrop of laser lights and fog machines to set the perfect stage.
From 6:30-8 p.m., Gulfstream Park Village will feature spooktacular themed candy stations through the Village, a safe alternative to neighborhood trick-or-treating. With approximately 2,000 pounds of candy, each station also features music, lights, and live strolling performers. The ‘Carn-Evil Performers’ will spook and delight near each candy station, with themes including The Nightmare Before Christmas, Creepy Carnevil Circus, Zombies, Mummies, Vampires, and scary creatures from Stanger Things—like Vecna and a Demogorgon!
Beginning at 8 p.m. in the Gulfstream Park Walking Ring is the highly anticipated Evil Costume Contest with up to $4,000 in cash up for grabs. Guests can also enjoy a selection of food trucks including Cuban Guys, Pollo Tropical and La Nostra Pizza, and bars with refreshments for purchase as well as music, performers and Miami’s own Chris Cruz as the Emcee/DJ.
Families are encouraged to dress in costume as they stroll through Gulfstream Park Village to collect candy and sweets, watch performances, and take photos. Guests tagging their photos with #GulfstreamVillage and posting them on Instagram can enter a contest for a chance to win a Gulfstream Village Merchant Gift Card. This is a FREE event.
