Zombicon 2013: "The Time Machine"

That's right, celebrating our 7th year!
The ORIGINAL ZombiCon is happening October 19th in the streets of Downtown Fort Myers!

This year we will be asking a $5 entry fee for the Pushing DaiZies Charity for the Arts. You will get a ZOMBICON sticker with that 5.00 and your 12 and under zombie kids are FREE . If you still feel charitable, feel free to bring canned food as well, but that will NOT take place of the $5 entry fee.

3-4 Stages will bring you loads of entertainment!
~Bands
~Performance art
~DJ's

Several Zombification make up stations will be setup around downtown!

LOADS of ZombiCon merchandise available for purchase!

Kids Zone with bounce house kid friendly activities will be located in lot across from Sydney and Berne Davis Art Center!

This is the 7th year for ZombiCon and we are happy to be bringing the downtown block party all of our fans LOVE!

Get creative with costuming! The Time Machine theme opens up a TON of possibilities. It's a time machine...it could be ANYTHING!

    Sorry, got a little buzzed last night. One minute we're all in the City Tavern, next minute everyone is gone. Regrouped with 6 or so people at Indigo Room and couldn't find anyone else. Music was pumping way too loud, couldn't talk so found the yogurt place instead! Anyways, had a great time with everyone, thanks.

    Had a good time once I found everyone. I didn't recognize Lindsey in full zombie-caveman makeup! LOL Dancing at Indigo was fun. Oh, and the thief returned my hat! Missed the shows on the main stage, though, including my old dance Troupe. Oops.

    I wish I could go, but I've been heavily procrastinating some work I need to get done by Sunday. I might try to show up later though, cuz I really wanted to go to this. If not, I hope it's a blast, and take some pictures! But let me know if anyone needs a D.D. tonight, I can only imagine it might get crazy. That'll be my good deed for the day. haha.

    I plan to get downtown just after dark. I was told that there is a "Time Machine" theme this year. I also heard that some people dress up as zombie killers... Much less make-up.

    1 · October 16, 2013

  • Kristy K.

    Not yet...lindsey, do you have any ideas where would be good?

    October 15, 2013

      October 13, 2013

  • Kristin J.

    I was one of the performers at ZOMBICON several years ago. My whole troupe, Bohemian Geisha, DONATED our services because it raises money for a good cause. Therefore, even if we do ZombiFest during the day, I highly recommend hitting the streets for the original ZOMBICON at night.

    One more thing - sorry - go here for more info: https://www.facebook.com/ZOMBICON

    September 10, 2013

  • Chris

    Hi everyone - I just wanted to give some input on this...I've been a fan of Zombicon since day one..this "Zombifest" is a different event from Zombicon.

    Zombicon is a FREE event that is out on by the non-profit org Pushing Daisies, and takes place in the streets of downtown fort myers. Food and blood donations during Zombicon benefit our local Harry Chapin Food Bank and the Red Cross Blood Bank. Zombifest does NOT. It is a FOR PROFIT organization that has no affiliation with Zombicon. Could still be fun, but the ORIGINAL ZOMBICON is ON! And knowing some of the inside info - I am not impressed with how Zombifest tried to push out our Zombicon and confuse all of us into thinking it is that same event : (

    2 · September 10, 2013

  • Gretchen

    This could be really cool!!

    1 · August 18, 2013

  • Cynthia

    This sounds so fun but I have MBA class this weekend!

    August 6, 2013

  • Suzette

    I'd like more details before making a decision. It sounds like it's going to much different than the previous "zombie" events of which I was NOT a fan. This sounds way more fun.
