This year at Freaky Deaky, embrace the golden rule that it’s always better to give than to receive. Through our official charitable partnership with The Houston Food Bank we’re encouraging Freaky Deaky fans to give help Houston’s populations who are in need.
On both days of the event, Saturday, October 26th and Sunday, October 27th, we invite you to donate non-perishable items to our food drive. After all, giving back does have its rewards. Those who contribute to the food drive will earn a mystery prize!
You’ll feel good about helping those in need, and although only one item is required, we encourage everyone to bring more.
Permitted items for the food drive consists of non-perishables such as canned goods. Canned essentials include soup, beans, vegetables, fruit, meat, jars of peanut butter, bagged rice, baby formula, baby food, etc.

Mystery prizes are only available to people at the event with a valid Freaky Deaky ticket who are eligible for entry into the event according to DDP’s policies. People who donate online are not eligible for mystery prizes (but we are grateful for your support, you’re awesome). A limited number of mystery prizes will be distributed at the event only to qualified recipients on a first come first serve basis. When we run out of mystery prizes, you’ll still receive our gratitude for helping fill the shelves of the Houston Food Bank. Mystery prizes are a small token of our thanks and not an exchange. The mystery prizes have no commercial value, their value is mysterious but most likely zero.
