Unique opportunities at one of the Twin Cities’ premiere Halloween attractions!
Valleyfair is looking for performers eager to flex their artistic muscles in new and interesting ways. We are looking for performers for our upcoming Great Pumpkin Fest and Haunt events, and would love to see what you can bring to the table! Some of these shows are geared towards family fun, while others lean in to the scarier side of things… ALL of them will give you new and varied experiences along your personal performance path!
What we’re looking for:
- Improvisers, with a personable and comedic streak, to portray vampire tour guides for one of our best-attended attractions during the Great Pumpkin Fest.
- Performers able to be on their feet, and engage in the art of portraying a “living statue” for long periods of time, as photo op characters during the Great Pumpkin Fest.
- Male dancers with an emphasis on isolations and fluidity of motion, for horror-themed performances during the Haunt.
- Specialty circus-style acts, such as: acrobats, contortionists, stilt walkers, jugglers, and hoop dancers. All circus-style acts are encouraged to apply.
- Shows run weekends from September 14 through October 27, with Haunt running Friday and Saturday nights, and Great Pumpkin Fest running Saturday and Sunday during the day. Availability for the entire run is not a requirement, but is highly preferred. Flexible schedules are available.
About Great Pumpkin Fest and Haunt:
The Great Pumpkin Fest is a family-friendly, haunted house-lite activation taking place at Valleyfair beginning on September 14 and running through October 27, with guest interactions scheduled from 11am-6pm. It is a chance for families to have a Halloween experience and witness the décor of a haunted house in full light, with laughs replacing scares.
The Halloween Haunt opens on September 20, and runs through October 26, with one additional Thursday during MEA week. This is a full scare event, and runs from the Awakening, at 6:50pm through to midnight each night.
