After a successful trial run in 2008, Monsterpalooza was first organized by Eliot Brodsky in 2009, and held at the Marriott Burbank Convention Center. It has been held annually since then, and usually takes place in March or April. The spring event recently moved from Burbank to the Pasadena Convention Center. A smaller offshoot convention, "Son of Monsterpalooza" is still held in Burbank in September.

Convention programming includes presentations, panels, and workshops. The spring Monsterpalooza event features a museum which displays screen-used props, masks, life-size figures and movie creatures from participating Hollywood FX studios and artists. Workshops focus on the craft; makeup demonstrations and creature effects. The emphasis is on classic horror, including characters from B movies of Hollywood's Golden Age.
