10th Annual Toronto ZOMBIE Walk

  • This location is shown only to members

It's that time of year again... our fourth season of doing the annual Zombie Walk in downtown Toronto!

10th Annual ZOMBIE Walk

It was on a dreary autumn day, 10 years ago, that an undead tradition was born!

10 Years ago, in our fair city, the earth caved in and the dead crawled and lurched their way from their graves to walk the streets of Toronto!

On October 20th the Dead will rise once more for the 10th annual Toronto Zombie Walk and YOU are invited!!

For the first time in the history of the Toronto Zombie Walk, the organizers are proud to partner with the Heart and Stroke Foundation to help carry out their mission of eliminating heart disease and stroke.

Join the Toronto Zombie Walk and special Guests, John A. Russo and Russ Streiner, as The Toronto Zombie Walk Grand Marshals, in a special DEATH DAY celebration and zombie walk.  This year promises to be our biggest and goriest yet, with vendors, bands and more BLOOD!

It’s Free!

Register at  http://torontozombiewalk.ca/register/ Zombies who register will be eligible for an after walk draw, winners will be announce the week after the walk.

More info on the event itself can be found here:

This is a great opportunity to photograph some truly amazing people in makeup and costumes. Here is the link to the full schedule including map:

This year we will meet at Queen Street and Bay Street on the steps of Old City Hall. During the event because its such a huge procession we may get split up, but should end up somewhere back at Nathan Philips Square.
