RELEASE YOUR INNER ZOMBIE ON OCTOBER 24 AT ZOMBIE WALK 7 – ALIEN ANT FARM HEADLINES FESTIVAL BENEFITING ST. MARY’S FOOD BANK
Before you lose a hand, lend one.
The biggest, baddest and bloodiest event in Downtown Phoenix wants to become one of the most charitable.
In celebration of Zombie Walk 7, which invades Heritage & Science Park in Downtown Phoenix on Saturday, Oct. 24, Downtown Phoenix Inc. has joined forces with St. Mary’s Food Bank and Goodwill of Central Arizona to try and raise seven tons of food aid.
This year’s festival is loaded with zombie fun for all ages, including:
- Rebel Lounge Main Stage featuring headliner Alien Ant Farm
- Goodwill Arizona Zombification Zone, where $5 or a donation of five food items gets you a full zombie makeover
- Little Zombie Zone
- Four Peaks Beer Gardens
- 1.5-mile Zombie Walk through Downtown Phoenix led by Grand Marshal, KUPD’s Morning Sickness star John Holmberg
- Zombie Walk 7 Costume Contest
Started in 2009 by the Downtown Phoenix Ambassadors, Zombie Walk has grown from a 200-person limp around Downtown Phoenix into a 20,000-attendee mega event. The signature 1.5-mile walk through downtown has become a parade-like spectacle that attracts some of the most detailed and creepiest costumes in the Valley.
Admission to Zombie Walk is free, but in the spirit of community building, Downtown Phoenix Inc. and its partners ask attendees to help us reach our food drive goal by bringing cash or food donations benefiting St. Mary’s Food Bank.
