This year is no exception.

TEEN HALLOWEEN: Back in the day, Chicago's underage partiers had Medusa's juice bar, an alcohol free place to dance, hear music, and hang out. Now there's a scary lack of fun options between childhood and 21+. For at least one day in 2015, Redmoon is stepping in to fill the void in an epic way THIS Friday, Oct 30th. BE THERE. Ages 14-20 ONLY. Absolutely no one 21+ admitted.

For five years, Redmoon’s Halloween party for adults, Boneshaker, has been the must-attend spectacular celebrating the spooky season.

Skelebration and Boneshaker are coordinated and produced by the 17-member Youth Board, Redmoon’s young professionals’ board.  This year, the Halloween events are co-directed by Redmoon's Will Bishop with event directors Maddy Low, Emily May, and event producer Ray Rehberg under the conceptual direction of Redmoon Producing Artistic Director Frank Maugeri.
