Blood Bash 2021

Blood Bash 2021 is coming to the Commonwealth Commerce Center on February 6th, 2021!

VENDOR ROOM:
The vendor room will be THE PLACE to be again! Last year we had over 40 tables of vendors selling horror merch, and 2021 promises to bring back amazing vendors selling anything from prints to shirts to baby toes in a bottle – – – yep, if it’s gore or horror you may find these things and more!

HORROR FILM FESTIVAL:
There will once again be an International Horror Film Festival and we will be awarding awards for:
Best In Show (Short)
Favorite Male Performance
Favorite Female Performance
and maybe a few new awards as well?

CARNIVAL GAMES:
The carnival games will be returning! That’s right, kids! You will once again be able to play some of your favorite and most twisted carnival games at Blood Bash, and as always they will be free! We will see the return of the games from 2020/2019 and maybe even have some new games to play!

COSPLAY AND SCREAM QUEEN CONTESTS:
Rumor has it that these will be moved up and take place during the regular convention hours in an effort to get the most cosplayers possible to be in them! 2020 saw a TON of amazing cosplays that weren’t around for the actual contest and we’re taking that issue head on in 2021! More on this to follow.

HORROR VIDEO GAME AND TABLETOP GAMES:
You know these will be back! Play some tabletop games, win tickets! Beat certain challenges on games like Castlevania or Zombies Ate My Neighbors – win tickets!

 

Love BITES at Awaken – Night Two

Please join us for a night of lost loves, tragic endings, and dark scary secrets! You don’t need a date for this Valentine’s Day weekend event, but you will need a flashlight as Awaken is turning down the lights. Yes, you heard right!

Awaken will lower the lights completely and provide your group only the dimmest of flashlights to venture through our event. This means the corners will be darker, the shadows deeper and the scares even scarier. Bring your beau or bring your bro’s and let your imagination run wild for this fun, exciting and terror filled Valentine’s Day event.

We can’t wait until Halloween, so we decided bring back our special Valentine’s event! On Saturday Feb. 16th, we will open for “Love BITES”. This is the ultimate date night for you and your boil or ghoul – but it gets even better! On this night, we will run the entire haunt in total darkness…YES, darkness!

YESSSSS, everything else will be up and running. So grab your sweetheart, friends, moms, dads, brothers, sisters, neighbors, someone off the street, and head out to Awaken Feb 16th, you won’t want to miss it!
