10/31 Consortium is a Baton Rouge-based non-profit organization established in July 2010. The organization is a club for Halloween enthusiasts which hosts several Halloween-themed events throughout the year. These events all lead up to the organization’s largest events, the Fifolet Halloween Festival, Baton Rouge Halloween Parade and Pumpkin Pi 3.14 Mile Race and Tough Pumpkin Challenge! The organization remains dedicated to children and the preservation of this Autumn tradition by raising money for Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital, collecting food for the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, collecting costumes for children in the Baton Rouge Big Buddy Program and by working with area neighborhoods to promote safe Trick or Treat practices. Baton Rouge Moms is honored to partner with 10/31 Consortium as their media sponsor and we have an amazing giveaway to share with you, see below!
This 4 day Halloween festival in Downtown Baton Rouge is a collaborative event with 10/31 Consortium and other local businesses and non-profit organizations. From family fun to adult fun, the Fifolet Festival has Halloween fun for everyone! See the full schedule below or list your event on the schedule today!
View the schedule for…
Halloween Town on the Levee Green, fun for the whole family, vendor booths, food and beverages, live entertainment, contests, character encounters and much more! Kids can “trick or treat” in Halloween Town, participate in fun activities with BREC on the Geaux, take pictures with the Petite Princess Company and enjoy a take-home craft with Baton Rouge Moms! Halloween Town is from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm on the Levee Green (by the USS Kidd) on parade day.
The first unit in the Baton Rouge Halloween Parade is the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank truck. Volunteers will take non-perishable food donations straight from the crowd. Please give generously to those in need.
This year’s theme is Rhythm and Boos! Join us as we celebrate music of all types throughout history! Leading the way will be Grand Marshal, Patrick Mulhearn, King Mark Bounds and Queen Judy Gonzales!
Walk in the Parade!!
No Krewe? No problem! Individual Walkers must dress according to categories as they will be grouped together with other Individual Walkers to form the semblance of a Walking Unit. This is a great way to make new friends and start your own krewe next year! Members can register as an Individual Walker for $15. Non-members are subject to a 20% fee increase.

This is no ordinary 5k. This 3.14 mile long race on the Mississippi River Levee (by the USS Kidd) is exactly 200 feet longer than a 5k. And, it is Baton Rouge’s only Halloween costume race! Take the Tough Pumpkin Challenge and run “the pi” while holding a pumpkin! All participants will receive a finisher’s medal. A special medal will be awarded to those completing the Tough Pumpkin Challenge. Additional prizes will be awarded by age group. REGISTER HERE
