Octerror Fest 2020 is the tenth Octerror Fest for The SpongeBob Community, which began October 16, 2020 and concluded on October 31, 2020. Like the previous four years, every game during the event counted for a teams tournament named the "Octerror Cup", this time between the Krusty Krew (Kreepy Krabs), Chum Buddies (Bucketheads), and Solos (Ghosts). In the end, the Krusty Krew won. Loyal Customers received a sneak peek of the event on October 2, 2020 and it was publicly announced October 9, 2020.
