About Us

Our crew is just a group of horror nerds who are excellent organizers and imaginative thinkers.

We can’t wait to grow our horror convention in 2023, and become the best horror con on the East Coast, and hopefully soon, create other unique events in Raleigh!

After attending NC Comic Cons, we decided to create Carolina Fear Fest out of a desire for a fear festival, a horror-themed convention closer to home. We chose to build our horror con in Raleigh’s bustling southern metropolis because of the variety of people who live here, the convenient amenities, and the nearness of major travel thoroughfares, including an international airport and I-95. We’re perfectly located for horror fans in Virginia and South Carolina.

Carolina Fear Fest is hosted by Arctic Pumpkin Productions, an event management company based in Lillington, NC.
