Boo Bash

The Carnival That’s Too Cute To Spook

Every October, get in the Halloween spirit with the kooky carnival that’s too cute to spook! Dress up in your most creative costumes and join the Virginia Discovery Museum for an evening of frighteningly fun games, activities, face painting, and crafts. Meet the UVA Chemistry LEAD Mad Scientists in their laboratory as they conduct electrifying experiments, decorate devilishly delicious cookies from Baggby’s, concoct silly potions in the Witch’s Cabin, tumble through the Spider Web Maze, stomp to the beat in the Monster Mash dance room, stop by the Little Shop of Prizes to trade in all the tickets you’ve earned, and so much more. Boo Bash is one of the Museum’s major annual fundraising events, and proceeds support the Sponsored Admission Program.
