Nights of the Jack

Nights Of The Jack is an immersive Halloween experience for all ages. Vast grounds of intricately hand-carved and illuminated jack o’lanterns welcome visitors as they make their way through our walking trail around King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas, CA. Angelenos will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a Halloween wonderland featuring a live pumpkin carver, gift shop, top LA food trucks, our “The Spookeasy Bar” and tons of other “Instagrammable” moments for all to enjoy! Come experience what everyone is talking about!
