The Asheville Zombiewalk has always been and is committed to remaining a family-friendly event. There is a playground area, sandbox, and plenty of grass at this year’s site. Bring out the zombie kids!

Bring on the Fun!

Aston Park is a great area to bring a blanket and feast on your favorite limbs with friends and family. Or you could bring Frisbees, checkers, or just enjoy the late afternoon sun on your fetid flesh. Whatever you bring with you – make sure you are able to clean up after yourself before you leave!

Scavenge like a Zombie!

We’re kicking off a scavenger hunt at 6:00 PM! Roam around town looking for the items on the scavenger list, and send us photos of each item you check off the list. There will be a kid-friendly list and an adult-friendly list, and winners of each category will receive prizes.

Shamble on!

The Zombiewalk picnic only lasts from 5:00-7:00 PM, but it is conveniently located in downtown Asheville. We encourage you to shamble on (safely and responsibly) from the picnic to your favorite bars. Please patronize our sponsoring locations, but feel free to shuffle about at your own discretion. Valid ID required for admission into all participating locations serving alcohol!

Asheville Zombiewalk Good Practices

    1. Be safe. Stay on the sidewalks and follow the rules of traffic when shambling across the street. The AZW does not condone drunk or disorderly conduct, or drunk driving – find a DD Zombie before you go out!
    2. Be responsible. Aston Park is a public park, and we intend to leave it as clean and limb-free as it was when we arrived. Please help by picking up after yourself before you shamble on at the end of the night.
    3. Be respectful. During the Zombiewalk picnic and afterward when invading downtown, be respectful of those who are not participating. DO NOT approach anyone who is not in zombie gear unless they indicate that they wish to be approached.
    4. Be courteous. Respect waitstaff and the rules of each business/bar you enter. The AZW is not responsible for the actions of zombies in the street, or in private establishments. Inappropriate actions will be handled by private security at each location, at their discretion.
