HighBall Halloween not only showcases stunning performances along with the very best in local and regional fashion and design talent, but it also helps to support the work of the Short North Alliance, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving the property owners, business, and residents of the Short North Arts District. From beautification and safety programming, to public art and initiatives that promote the success and economic development of our region’s most dynamic small business community, HighBall Halloween makes a lasting impact on the Short North Arts District throughout the year.

Support for the “Art and Soul of Columbus,” the Short North Arts District, is needed now more than ever after what’s been a challenging year on so many fronts, especially for local businesses and artists. In addition to buying a ticket to this year’s virtual event, you can make your support go even further with a donation to the Short North Alliance.
