Dress Up & Dine in Downtown Culver City

Thank you to our businesses and customers for participating in our promotion!

Congratulations to our 5 costume contest winners!


Looking for a place to safely show off your costume this Halloween? Bring the whole family out to eat in Downtown Culver City!

On Friday, October 30 and Saturday October 31, participating restaurants will give a sweet treat to customers who purchase a meal and come dressed in costume. After you eat, post a pic in front of the restaurant, and follow the instructions below to enter our Costume Contest. Winners will receive gift certificates for local businesses in such categories as “Scariest Costume”, “Most Adorable”, “Most On-Brand for 2020” and “Best Overall Costume”.

Prefer to stay at home, curled up with your favorite horror flick? Join in the fun by posting a pic in costume enjoying takeout from your favorite Downtown restaurant and follow the instructions below.

Downtown businesses will also be donating candy to Culver City Backpacks for Kids to be distributed along with groceries to families in need. 

All of us in Downtown Culver City are so grateful to all of our neighbors for keeping the Heart of SCREAM-land beating during the scariest of years. We hope you’ll accept this small token of our appreciation. We look forward to seeing all of you in costume as you dine safely on our extended patios, and we’re already excited for next year’s Hip and Historic Halloween Event when we can gather once more.


Please note: To keep everyone safe, there will be no door-to-door trick-or-treating in Downtown this year.
