Louisville Halloween Parade and Festival
Don't Be A Monster


Louisville Halloween has partnered with Denver-based Don't Be A Monster to bring a much-needed bullying prevention program to Kentucky. Don’t Be A Monster is the largest 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works alongside Haunted Attractions in the United States. As a partner with Don't Be A Monster, we are offering unique and entertaining anti-bullying assemblies for students in Kentucky. The mission is simple: we work to educate and empower youth to be leaders around diversity, inclusiveness, and show them how to stand up for their friends and peers. Part of the proceeds of the Louisville Halloween Parade & Festival go to support the Don't Be A Monster program in this market.

Kentucky Harvest Food Drive


We will have donation bins set-up at the parade judge's tent for donations of canned good items to be donated to Kentucky Harvest. With every canned good donation, you will receive special savings on Halloween entertainment. Kentucky Harvest is a non-profit organization that serves Kentuckiana. They deliver both perishable and non-perishable food to those in need. Their main goal is to ensure that all food finds its way to those in need throughout our community. With your help, they can continue to do that for years to come. Let’s feed the Commonwealth.

Pumpkins for Puppies


Returning again for 2019 is the successful Pumpkins for Puppies fundraiser for Louisville Metro Animal Services. The way it works is simple. For every $5 donation you make, you receive a small pumpkin with a paw print. For every $10 donation, you will receive a large pumpkin with a paw print. In 2017, this was one of Louisville Metro Animal Services most successful fundraising event. They even adopted out animals directly from the festival! Come help animals find the forever home and get a pumpkin to put on your porch to show how Pawesome you are!
