Halloween by Design Classic Monster Bash takes place Saturday, Oct. 19 from 7-10:30 p.m. at  Star Hill Ranch located at 15000 Hamilton Pool Rd. near the Hill Country Galleria. The one-of-a-kind bash and fundraiser is sure to delight everyone from film buffs to music fans looking to enjoy an evening of Halloween-themed entertainment while supporting Central Texas non-profit organizations. The event is co-chaired by Kip and Melinda Garvey. 

 

Halloween by Design Classic Monster Bash offers guests an exclusive opportunity to explore meticulously designed sets inspired by iconic monster films of the 1930s - 1950s.  Renowned Austin-based Hollywood set decorator, Bart Brown (Battle Angel, Planet Terror, Machete), along with a roster of notable Austin designers, will transform the historic Star Hill Ranch buildings into a village of dramatic, custom-designed sets inspired by classic horror films including The Wolf Man (1941), Dracula (1931), and The Invisible Man (1933). Frankenstein (1931) and Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954).  

 

Guests will be transported into a world of iconic silver screen monsters while being treated to an exclusive night of entertainment including live music from Texas superstar Kelly Willis and scratch-made dishes from notable Austin chefs including Eric Nelson Brown (EAT + DRINK Austin), Leanne Valenti (Bento Picnic), John Bullington (Austin Java) and Simon Madera (Taco Flats). 

 

The evening will also feature live music by Austin musician Lurleen Ladd, chef-crafted cocktails, live auction led by Heath Hale, aura readings from Mood by Moss, fantasy makeup booth by Eleve Cosmetics, casino gaming and a curated Halloween by Design store — all offered amongst the backdrop of a sprawling, secluded Hill Country venue. Guests are encouraged, but not required, to wear costumes.
