A Halloween and Music Festival
"This year we’re billing the event as a Halloween/Music festival,” says owner Justin Whitfield. “We have 5-6 awesome local bands that will be playing throughout the day.”
Fal-Skye will be performing along with the normal Halloween party inside the main bar. The event will host around 50 vendors and exhibits for all interests.
Get Autographs from Favorite Celebrities
Fans can enjoy meet and greets and get autographs with celebrities from popular horror films and shows and more. They have 6 celebrities from Michael Myers to the actress who played young Jenny in Forest Gump.
“Halloween is just a magical time of year for me. With the changing of the weather and the nights being earlier, it’s the perfect time for nighttime concerts,” says Whitfield.
22 years ago, this Halloween, Justin Whitfield moved to Katy from Dallas. He was lost and didn’t know what he was going to do next. Fast forward to March 2017 when he bought Wildcatter Saloon. Now he brings a wide range of events to Katy to both entertain and benefit the community who welcomed him.
“I used to love to dress up and go to haunted houses with my friends. Now in the bar business I’m always here so I decided to bring the haunted house to me,” says Whitfield.
