THE NEW JERSEY ZOMBIE WALK IS OCTOBER 22ND

 
The Zombie Walk is on Saturday and is ...(as always) TOTALLY FREE! We’ll have a Base Camp in the Grand Arcade of Convention Hall which will open at 10am with the Undead Festival. Our team of professional artists will once again be offering Zombie Makeovers for a nominal ticket fee, or you can get bloody in the DIY makeup area and Blood Bath on the beach. The walk will begin at 5:00PM this year, no Guinness count.. this time we head straight for the city!

THE UNDEAD FESTIVAL IS ALL WEEKEND LONG!

 Asbury Park Convention Hall will be transformed into a post-apocalyptic wonderland October 21st, 22nd and 23rd as the Undead Festival takes over the building! We’re working on a final schedule for the event that will include over fifty vendors, zombie costume & cosplay contests, a horrific fashion show, haunting music.. zombiefied cake.. after parties and theatrical performances.. special screenings and sneak peeks at some of the hottest new zombie films, shows and video games.. LIVE panel discussions and meet and greets with famous artists and actors from your favorite horror titles and MUCH MORE.

FIRST WAVE OF SPECIAL GUESTS ANNOUNCED! 
We’re VERY excited to welcome “NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD” stars Bill Hinzmann, Kyra Schon, Judith Ridley, John Russo, Russ Streiner, George Kosana, & Gary Streiner as they come together to tell stories about the ORIGINAL Zombie film that started it all!
