19th Annual Halloween Doors & More, a Gala of a Different Sort

The event supports the pediatric program of Community Hospice & Palliative Care

September 13, 2023 (Jacksonville, Fla.) – On Saturday, October 14, The Foundation of Community Hospice & Palliative Care will transform the Jacksonville Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall into a magical, candy land-themed day of family-friendly fun and entertainment for the 19th annual Halloween Doors & More.

Northeast Florida’s premier Halloween event since 2005, Halloween Doors & More, will begin at 2 p.m. for fun attractions with candy, toys, food, interactive experiences, and live characters. Visit with the Jacksonville Jaguars Cheerleaders, trick or treat at the 14-foot-high Fantasy Doors, stroll the Magical Meet and Greet Streets to see favorite costumed characters, show off dance moves in the Fiesta Family Disco, visit the Booutiful Salon for a spooktacular make-over, and stop by the Grown-Up Grotto and Food Court to enjoy gourmet foods and drinks. Fantasy Smiles are required, and costumes are encouraged.

Proceeds from Halloween Doors & More benefit Community PedsCare®, the pediatric program of Community Hospice & Palliative Care, supporting children living with serious and life-limiting illnesses and their families. Most Community PedsCare® services are provided without charge, regardless of insurance coverage. All vital care and support are provided at no cost to the family, which is made possible through generous community supporters, efforts of The Foundation of Community Hospice & Palliative Care, and Medicare.
