The Utica Zombie Walk is an all-age, free event that allows participants to act out a simulated zombie invasion while also benefiting selected local charities. The cost of registration is free, but participants are asked to bring one non-perishable pet or human food item to the Zombie Walk whether you register online or just participate in the walk. Spectators are also encouraged to bring a food item. This year's charities are the Food Bank of Central New York and the Stevens-Swan Humane Society of Oneida County. 

Party in the Stanley before and after the Utica Zombie Walk.

The doors to the Stanley will open at 5 when make up will be started for everyone who registered online. Remember, you will need a food item for donation for each person getting make up done.

Live entertainment will begin at 6 with Jayne Dracula, a gothic horror rock black metal band hailing from Syracuse.

Also before the walk, a Zombie Zumba flash mob-with a Michael Jackson impersonator- will get the crowd ready for the walk in the lobby.

After the zombie walk, the band Wicked takes the stage.

The short film Zombies in Utica 2 will be shown several times through the evening.

And that's not all! If you're a fan of the tv series Walking Dead, or if you just want to get on television in your zombie best, here's something you've gotta be part of – a Walking Dead promotional commercial shoot. The Walking Dead airs on Wednesday nights at 8 on WPNY. We will get you on camera and record your performance for promotional commercials. Watch for them at various times and days on WPNY, WFXV33 and WUTR. Plus, some of them will be featured during the show.

For those 21 and older, a fully-themed zombie dance party begins at 9pm at the Dev on Devereux Street, around the corner from the Stanley. Cost of admission is $5. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to this year's selected charities. 

MAKE UP REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. If you have not registered for make up, you will need to arrive at the zombie walk with your make up already applied. You can still come and join the walk and all the activities with the exception of make up unless you have already registered.
