Benefiting the American Cancer Society. 

The 13th Annual Richmond Zombie Walk will take place on Saturday, October 28th.

Pre-walk meet up/staging area location at 1pm will be held at Boat Lake at Byrd Park (on Boat Lake Drive) and the actual walk will begin on the sidewalk across the street from the Byrd Theatre (2901 W Cary St, Richmond, VA 23221) in Carytown immediately after at about 2:30p.

Please arrive in costume.


There are 2 locations
1. 1:00 p.m. – Meet up spot/ Staging area – Boat Lake at Byrd Park (on Boat Lake Drive). This is where we can gather together to go over the rules, collect donations, give out prizes, and take lots and lots of photos.

Plan your rides! This starting point is about 1 mile from the initial meet up spot at Boat Lake at Byrd Park.

2. 2:30-3:00 p.m. – Immediately after that, we’ll head on over to the starting point which is on the sidewalk across the street from the Byrd Theatre in Carytown (2901 W Cary St, Richmond, VA 23221)

We'll walk down the same side of the street on Cary Street heading west, cross at Nansemond Street, and walk back down Cary street on the otherside all the way down and end at the Byrd Theatre (2908 W Cary St. Richmond, VA 23221)

You can enjoy the shops in Carytown while waiting for the zombie horde to arrive. If you can’t be a zombie, be the food, right?

Our activities benefit The American Cancer Society. We won’t require anyone to make a donation, but if everyone can pitch in $5 each, it will be much appreciated.

Here are the categories we’ll be judging. Prizes will be awarded at the pre-walk meet up.

  • Most Disgusting
  • Best Couple/Group Theme
  • Best Pop Culture Theme (TV/Movie/Comic/Gaming)
