Just got the official word. Sorry to get your hopes up.
More rest for the wicked! Happy Halloween!
For our undead visitors to the unholy grounds of Eternal Rest Cemetery … due to many requests about this year’s event, I needed to make an official posting about our status. This year’s Halloween event will not be happening.
There are many reasons it did not come together this year … but the idea of it coming back next year will depend on the team of volunteers that we can put together to support the event in the way it needs to be. This is due to the tremendous growth that Eternal Rest has seen in the last few years – and in order to keep control of it’s artistic vision, the safety of our guests, and it’s professional attitude toward what we do … it’s going to be all about that ensemble we can put together.
We have some really incredible people who are on board, but we need more like minded people that are interested in this sort of thing.
In the past years, Eternal Rest has started it’s physical set up a couple of months in advance and requires about another month for taking down. The idea for next year’s event will be a sort of year long planning status. That means we are testing the waters right now to see if next year can happen.
If you think you may have some talents to offer this event and you would like to see it continue, please contact me for information.
Thanks for reading through this post!

The 2013 incantation of Venice Haunted House – Eternal Rest Cemetery, has come to a close.
Most of our visitors escaped back to safety … only a few have gone unaccounted for.
A thanks to all of the unsuspecting donors of various blood products. The undead have an undying love for your kindness and thoughtful offerings.
Eternal Rest Cemetery opens it decrepit gates each Halloween season to unleash an onslaught of horrors to make your worst nightmares come true.
The unholy dead drag themselves from their cemetery graves for two nights – Saturday October 27th and Wednesday October 31st. The mayhem begins each evening at approximately 7:00PM and continues till the gates are chained shut at around midnight.
On these two nights only, The Eternal Rest Cemetery proprietors allow you to visit with the recently departed by taking a delightful tour through the depths of The Morgue. Be warned that this is an intense experience. We do not recommend it for children under 14 … or maybe even anyone, for that matter.
The cemetery grounds are located at 414 Rose Avenue in Venice, California (90291). Come by to find your eternal resting spot, it’s a free Halloween experience, but you may pay with your life.
