Brews, books, and ghouls! This Halloween open mic night invites poets & writers to share their spookiest tales and macabre stories with a crowd of literature loving souls. A literary costume contest and scavenger hunt are sure to delight anyone looking for a unique way to spend Halloween.

This fundraising event is the closing party of Makara Center for the Arts yearlong "FrankenRead 2018" citywide reading initiative, where over 100 free copies of FRANKENSTEIN were distributed to local readers and over 125 participants engaged in a dozen Frankenstein-themed arts & science workshops. All proceeds from the "Dark & Stormy Open Mic Night" fundraiser will support Makara's nonprofit library and educational programs.

Cocktails with Creatures

You are invited to Cocktails with Creatures! This exciting Halloween fundraiser to benefit Makara Center for the Arts will be held at our tropical-themed arts & culture library in the heart of Santa Ana. We'll have a silent auction with amazing items to bid on, plus delicious signature cocktails for sale and a vision of “Frankenstein” like you’ve never seen before! 100% of event proceeds will be dedicated to Makara’s nonprofit programs including the expansion of our after-school programs and the purchase of nontraditional items for our free lending library (musical instruments, art supplies), as well as support for our 2018 citywide reading initiative, "FrankenRead: Santa Ana Reads Frankenstein!" 

We hope to see you on October 29!
