This FREE, family-friendly festival kicks off at 2 p.m. with vendors, family activities, music and a Rose & Crown beer garden featuring Four Peaks plus sangria and Italian food from locally-owned Crust Restaurants.

The highlight of the night, the annual shuffle of the undead, will commence at dusk (roughly 6 p.m.) when Zombie King and Queen Michael Aguirre and Breanna Reeser will join KUPD’s John Holmberg in leading 10,000 zombies on the 1.2 mile route through the heart of Downtown Phoenix. There will be surprises all along the route this year, including appearances by the Department of Zombie Defense, the United Zombies of America and many, many more.

Don't know how to become a zombie? No problem! A donation of canned food items to St. Mary’s Food Bank gets you a 5 minute makeover from an Arizona Ghostbuster.

The Zombie Walk Main Stage starts rocking at 3 p.m. and features performances from Free Ride in a Mason Jar, Soul Power, Recipe for Disaster and a live reading of The Raven from the actors of PoeFest. Zombie rockers Powerman 5000 will close the show at 9:30 p.m.
