About Us 

Halloween by Design is an annual Halloween bash celebrating design, film, food and fundraising. The unique Austin event offers guests a full night of festive entertainment including spectacular decor, live music, film-inspired fun, seasonal eats and cocktails from notable chefs, Halloween activities and plenty of Instagrammable moments — all to help raise funds and awareness for Central Texas nonprofit organizations. 

Halloween By Design was founded in 2018 by entrepreneur, musician and community advocate, Lurleen Ladd. Lurleen’s unabashed love for Halloween and dedication to serving her community inspired her to create a philanthropic festival that celebrates all-things-Halloween.
