Hocus Pocus Pops

Houston Symphony - no ticket or preregistration required for Free Seating areas

Gates at 6:00 PM
Show at 07:30 PM

Get ready for The Pavilion’s spookiest night of the year!

Around here, Hocus Pocus Pops might be an even bigger deal than Halloween itself! There’s all the trick-or-treating and kiddos in costumes and ghastly guys and ghouls…plus the haunting Houston Symphony in all its sinister splendor.

Expect creepy classics like character pictures, the Halloween Express and, of course, the Goblin Parade to make their return. We’ll also have some scary surprises in store just for you and your family!

Maybe you’re in it for the terrifying tunes played from our Main Stage, or maybe you’re just in it for the candy – either way, we can’t wait to have you haunt our lawn once more!
