FreakNight Festival Safety Policies

Your safety is always our #1 concern at every event we throw. As Seattle’s Sinister Circus draws near, it is important to take the time to look over the various safety policies in place for your time under the Twisted Big Top.

Safety starts and ends with each and every one of you. We have many trained staff and volunteers on hand to help you out if you find yourself in need, but please be smart and be personally accountable with your well being. Together, we can make FreakNight 2019 the scariest, and safest Halloween haunt yet.
