UPDATE 2012: Vancouver Zombie Walk 2012 will be on August 18th, 2012
NOTE: This 2011 event has passed, however I still see a high level of search hits for the event, so until next year, perhaps you might be interested in the following:
- Victorian Zombie Thriller at the Parade of Lost Souls
- Thrill the World Vancouver
- Secret Souls Walk
- Debts at the Roedde House Museum
- House of Faerie Bad Things
- or any of the other Halloween stuff on this blog
Zombies. The parody novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies goes with the premise that everything’s better with zombies (and ninjas). Take for instance two recent flicks, Zombieland and Wasting Away. Both were amazingly fun to watch movie and zombies (but no ninjas). How about last years’ In the House Festival Halloween production? It ended with MJ’s Thriller which of course, has zombies (and yes, in this case, ninjas too). So zombies aren’t necessarily bad, they’re just slightly misunderstood.
Official after party – Zombie-A-Go-Go at Sanctuary! (19+)
ONCE AGAIN, THE UNDEAD SHALL SHAMBLE THROUGH VANCOUVER!
Every year the Vancouver Zombie Walk grows bigger, with more participants of all ages, ever more creative costumes and levels of GOOOOORE, more spinoff and associated events throughout the city, and more huge quantities of blood-soaked fun every single time. Do you know of or have a zombie-themed event on August 20th? Let us know and we can potentially list it as an official pre- or post-Walk party!

Thank you to Erin Dafoe-Potter for sharing it – AMAZING photos and video from last year’s Walk!
Zombie Walk Meeting Times and Route:
- meet at 4 PM at the Vancouver Art Gallery downtown (or even earlier!)
- The walk begins at 4:30 PM, no earlier!
Zombie Walk route will loop around the Vancouver Art Gallery, then turn down Robson, continuing to Denman, turning left on Denman and continuing on towards the beach, then taking a right at Davie, ending in the beach park along the seawall, where the Zombies can decompress, decompose, and continue to frolic … and of course, TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES!
PLEASE NOTE – DO NOT VANDALIZE ANYTHING!
Though the temptation is great, please do NOT smear blood, brains or anything else on any businesses, buses, automobiles or any other public or private property as this is VANDALISM and the police will be ticketing and dealing with anyone appropriately who vandalizes anything. The police have been very good at past Zombie Walks so please Zombie Walk with your utmost undead abandon, but don’t do anything careless which could jeopardize everyone’s fun and possibly shut down future Zombie Walks.
RESPECT THE LITTLE ONES AS WELL!
Though we big kids all see the fun in it, small children may not, and if you see any children reacting fearfully, please do not add to their distress! Just move on and let their parents explain … do NOT accidentally be the douche who gives them nightmares for a week by leering in their face! However, if they’re into it, they’re fair game for fun, like ALL the living!
SPREAD THE WORD / INFECT OTHERS / INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!
