The library will close its doors at 5pm and re-open at 7pm. Stay tuned for the list of films!
If you would like to host a panel or give a presentation, you MUST fill out our Panel Suggestion Form (through SurveyMonkey). While we welcome all submissions, panels that fit the theme (Attack of the 50 Foot Monster Fest!) will be given first consideration.
We are completely out of vendor tables! If you would like to be put on the waiting list for a vendor table in case we have any cancellations, please submit the Vendor Form (through SurveyMonkey) and we will confirm your waiting list status via email.
Monster Fest is the annual one-day horror convention held at the Chesapeake Central Library in Virginia for fans of classic horror in film and literature.
Begun in 2003 by Rob Floyd and artist Clayton Sayre, Monster Fest is a day of vendors, panel discussions, special guests, a costume contest, live music, trick-or-treating for all kids in costume, and a horror movie marathon!
This event is 100% FREE and open to the public!
Just another spook-tacular service of your Chesapeake Central Library!
