About Goblin Jamboree

This fall we will hold our annual Goblin Jamboree on October 15 and 16, 2016. This much anticipated Halloween festival is a Bay Area tradition. Each year we welcome over 5,000 people to our Museum, which is transformed into a "Spooktacular and FaBOOlous" Halloween carnival. Clad in costumes, children enjoy train rides, live performers, games, activities, pony rides, a petting zoo and more! In addition to being a terrific celebration for the community, this event is a major fundraiser for the museum: all proceeds benefit the Museum’s educational programs, exhibitions and community outreach programs.
