Welcome To Bonza Bash Halloween 2013!

How time flies! Summer is nearly over and fall is on the way. You know what that means… Halloween is right around the corner! We’ve been hard at work putting together an amazing Halloween experience for you. It will without a doubt be the biggest and best Halloween event we’ve put together yet!

The Bonza Bash Halloween 2013 Masquerade Ball is back, and we’re continuing the tradition of hosting one of the biggest, and most certainly the best Halloween event in town.

On Night Logistics

Masquerade Costume Ball

The Bonza Bash is Seattle’s only Masquerade Costume Ball. You’re welcome to dress in Classic Masquerade (black tie + Venetian-style mask) or Delicious Costume (think fun, sexy, interesting), whichever takes your fancy! This is a Bonza Bash, so dress to impress.

As with all Bonza Bashes, this is a dressy affair – jeans, sneakers etc… will not be allowed. We get few opportunities to dress up in Seattle, so here’s your chance.

To gain entry to the party, you must dressed in masquerade or costume. The dress code will be strictly enforced, if you’re not dressed appropriately, you won’t get in.

Grand Prize –A Trip For Two To Australia!

Bonza Bash Halloween is known for having Seattle’s richest costume contest, and this year will be no exception.

Every year at Bonza Bash, the phenomenal costumed party-goers compete for the ultimate prize: a round trip for 2 to Australia! All in all, we’ve got $10,000 in prizes for our costume contest–without a doubt, it’s the biggest, richest and by far the best costume contest in town.


Contest Categories

We will have 5 categories you can choose to enter:

  • Best Costume
  • Best Masquerade
  • Best Group
  • Sexiest Costume
  • Funniest Costume (New this year!)

The winners from the respective categories will compete for the title of Best Overall and the Grand Prize!

Fremont Studios

Fremont Studios is Seattle’s only production movie studio – an amazing venue with one of the best sound and lighting systems in the Pacific Northwest. With a capacity for 2000 guests, we couldn’t think of a better location for Halloween!


Once again, our friends over at PJ Hummel & Company will transform Fremont Studios like you’ve never seen it before.

World renowned DJ Gigahurtz has played at Diddy’s “All White Party”, gigs in Vegas, LA and Miami and for major artists like “The Far East Movement”, “Colby O’Donis”, “Jay Sean” and more… His specialty is video DJing and you’ll see his song mashups live on a massivley large projection screen. DJ Gigahurtz will keep you moving, dancing and shaking all night!


As usual, our team of professional photographers will be on hand to capture the evening. After the event we collate and upload all of the photos to our official photo galleries and Facebook, it usually takes 5-7 days to get all that done.

Dress code

Bonza Bash Halloween 2013 is a Masquerade Costume Ball, so you’re equally welcome in Classic Masquerade (ie: suit or tux for the guys, cocktail dress or ball gown for the ladies, plus the mask of course) or Delicious Costume (think fun, sexy, interesting). At the Bonza Bash, dress code is strictly enforced. You must be dressed in either masquerade OR a costume to gain entry to the party. If not, security will kindly ask you to go home and change your attire. There will be no entry for guests wearing denim jeans/sneakers on the basis of “this is my costume” / “I’m a rockstar” / “I’m myself” etc… Yes, someone tries this EVERY year. Yes, the result for those guests will still be the same!

This is a rare opportunity in Seattle to dress to impress. Dare to be dapper, debonair and chic!

We’ll have plenty of bars available throughout the venue. To keep the lines moving, bars will be CASH ONLY. Please plan accordingly. The VIP private bar will be cash and credit card. Learn more. Your ID will be required for entry into this 21+ event, so don’t forget it!
