Los Angeles’ greatest jack-o-lantern spectacular is just around the corner.
Returning for a fifth year, Nights of the Jack opens Sept. 30 and promises to be bigger and brighter than ever before.
"We are thrilled to be celebrating our 5th annual Nights Of The Jack this year in Calabasas," said Nights of the Jack co-founders, Ben Biscotti and Tony Schubert. "We look forward to entertaining everyone again with an immersive Halloween event that appeals to adults, families and children of all ages!”

Nights of the Jack is more than just a holiday extravaganza. It actually ties back to Calabasas history. According to a legend dating back to 1824, a rancher from Oxnard spilled a wagonload of pumpkins in Calabasas while headed for Los Angeles. Later, hundreds of pumpkins sprouted alongside the road.
The premier Halloweentime event’s popularity lives up to the hype by offering an unparalleled immersive experience. Upon entering King Gillette Ranch, you’re transported to a vibrant, spooky (but never scary!) world of pumpkin enchantment.
Featuring thousands of hand-carved pumpkins, Nights of the Jack features elaborate scenes, a nearly mile-long trail, live carvings, a souvenir shop and premium food and beverages for kids and adults alike.
Vendors include L.A. food truck favorites, such as Vivace Pizza and Cousins Maine Lobster. Sweet treats, coffee, hot cider and cocoa will be available nightly and Wednesdays will have a special dessert truck. Visitors 21 and over can also have some extra fun at the Spookeasy: a high-end full bar with themed cocktails.
Running through Oct. 31, you’ll have 25 dates to experience the Halloween wonderland. Opening weekend runs Sept. 30- Oct. 2, which is followed by friends and family weekend on Oct. 6- 9. The final round of dates are Oct. 12-16 and Oct. 19-31.
