"A Thrilling Exhibition of the Arts"

Welcome to Hammond Horror Fest 2016! This year marks the 6th Annual Hammond Horror Festival, a series of events taking place in and around downtown Hammond that is sure to entertain you with a twist of horror just in time for Halloween.

The purpose of the Hammond Horror Festival is to provide an annual community project for artists of all mediums to showcase their work in an alternative celebration of the arts, while benefitting local arts organizations. Started in October 2011, the HHF is designed to embrace the contributions, tastes, and cultural energies that local professional and student artists bring to this region.

The planned location of the HHF is downtown Hammond, LA, and various surrounding areas, in order to support and enrich the arts and culture of this historic city. The goal of this festival is to inspire local artists to get involved with their community in the spirit of Halloween, and will do so by welcoming a spread of performances and exhibitions of art including, but not limited to: theatre, music, visual arts, dance, poetry/spoken word and film.
