Bats Day in the Fun Park®; 22-Bats-Tiki™ – POSTPONED to May 2022
Due to the continued uncertainties with the COVID-19 pandemic and the unknown date of when Disneyland CA will go back to their normal operating procedures, it seems likely that Bats Day in the Fun Park 22: The Spooky Trip to Disneyland Resort CA, in May will have to be postponed. It is still not safe to hold in-person events as of yet. Also if Disneyland were to open right now, it would only be open at a limited capacity.
We will miss seeing all of our spooky friends for another year, but we also know that this is only temporary and that this is the right thing do to. We want to be able to have everyone who wants to attend, to be safe and not worry about possibly not getting into the Tragic Kingdom.
Our new tentative date to have our Bats-Tiki™ Bats Day 22, is May 8, 2022. We may also see the return of the Bats Day® Black Market as well.
Just because our in-person event isn’t happening this year, we don’t completely want to leave you in the dark. So on May 2, 2021 we are going to break into the Bats Day in the Fun Park archival crypt. We are going to go through 15 years of concert footage from our past events and put together the Bats Day Dark Park™ Live…er…DeadStream Musicfest. With performance from bands like Abney Park, Babyland, Coffin Draggers, Creature Features, David J., Fangs on Fur, Frankenstein, Marquis & the Rhythm Howlers, Tragic Black, Sky’s Gone Out, Voltaire & more.
We really do appreciate all of you for supporting this event. The last thing we want to do is put anyone in harms way. Bats Day in the Fun Park does not have a corporate sponsorship or relies on an individual funding the event. Bats Day is a grass root event and always has been. Bats Day is an event for the community. Any funds or money that this event takes in, it goes right back into the event. At this time please continue to support this event along with all the independent artists and musicians that are struggling at the moment.
Please be safe out there. Wear your Mask. Wash your hands. Social Distance. Please only go out when it is necessary. Remember, it only takes one person who is Asymptomatic to spread this virus and do it without even knowing you did. The longer we don’t take this pandemic seriously, the longer we are not going to go back to Spooky, er normal.
Help support and be kind to your fellow community members. Hopefully in May 2022 the situation will be much different than it is now. We will get through this, We have been doing this already for about a year now. Hopefully, not much longer.

Bats Day in the Fun Park has become a spooky phenomenon, paving the way for other group meet-ups and social gatherings. Bats Day in the Fun Park attracts people from all dark subculture genres and walks of life, from deathrock to Goth, Industrial to steampunk, rockabilly to psychobilly, Halloween and anywhere in between, all for the love of Disneyland. Over the years, we have met quite a number of people from outside the subculture that enjoy attending, too. We welcome everyone to join in the spooky fun! Bats Day in the Fun Park has grown from a humble group of 80 friends in 1999 to over 10,000 guests from all over the world in 2019. This year, we hope to shatter new records and continue the growth of this dark subculture event.
