10 Years of Zombie Walkin’ in RVA!

Author: DeadMason | Filed under: Event Info

Time to get things all blow’d up. KABOOM!

Oh how the time flies when you’ve got nothing to do but pick maggots out your own rotting flesh.


After months of scavenging for rodents along the sewers of the James River, your zombie masters have returned to the surface and are hungry for human flesh and BRAAAAAINS.


The 10th Annual Richmond Zombie Walk will take place on Saturday, October 25th. Pre-walk meet up/staging area location at 1pm will be held at a new location –  Humphrey Calder Community Center Park (414 N Thompson St, Richmond, VA 23221) and the actual walk will begin on the sidewalk in front of Kroger (3507 W Cary St, Richmond, VA 23221) in Carytown  immediately after at about 2:30p.

Again, we WILL NOT be meeting at Fountain Lake at Byrd Park this year for the pre-walk meeting. There is another children’s event happening at that location on the same day. (Ignore the map location that points out Fountain Lake below)


This year, as always, we will walk Carytown. And that’s it. You will find that it is exhausting to lumber around just after a few blocks. In previous years some of the locations that we walked based on popular suggestions have been “hit or miss”. We lose attendance with each new location, and there is some confusion with our out-of-town undead.

Plan your rides! This starting point is not at the meet up spot/staging area!


Here are a few of 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)

- Best Zombie Kid

- 2014 Zombie of the Year (Best Overall)


Our activities this year will benefit The American Cancer Society. Again,we won’t require anyone to make a donation, but if everyone can pitch in $5 each, it will be much appreciated. Let’s raise even more money this year than we have in the past!

Again, stay tuned for upcoming information and details. If you have any questions, ideas or would like to help out in any way, send us a message at info@richmondzombiewalk.com

Mmm, 2013 brains are delicious

2010RVA, you’re brains are delicious!

We were fortunate enough to have the weather cooperate this year and the event ran perfectly. Thanks to everyone (alive and undead) who came out to support us and the American Cancer Society. You all contributed over $500 in donations this year. Fantastic! We appreciate every single penny.

Congratulations to all of our costume contest winners. They really do get harder to judge every year because you guys rock the house like that.

Special thanks to Abigail Larson for her talented work on our event posters. We are very lucky to have her. Stay tuned for next year’s special 10th anniversary poster.

Yes, next year is our 10th anniversary! It’s big deal, so expect big deal things to happen.

Thanks to Colonial Shooting Academy, Richmond Brewery Tours, RVA Magazine, everyone who shared their photographs and videos of the event, and thanks to you – my little rotten walkers.

Stinking smooches to all. Until next year.

Only the undead are awarded

Author: DeadMason | Filed under: Contests, Costuming & Makeup, Event Info

Only a few of you lucky undead will lumber away with FABULOUS CASH AND PRIZES!!! Just kidding. There’s no cash. However, we will have a some rather neat prizes and a token trophy to show you that, even though we hunger for human flesh and brains like you, we care.

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

  1. Most Disgusting. Yes it may seem easy to acquire, but you’ll find difficulty in really grossing us out for this one.
  2. Best Couple/Group Theme. Crazed Ghoul Scouts, Beetlejuice and Lydia, Undead ex-Circuit City Employees. All fantastic. You can do better, right?
  3. Best Pop Culture Theme. (TV/Movie/Comic/Gaming) Plants vs. Zombies, The Walking Dead, Star Trek. You get it.
  4. Best Zombie Kid. If there’s one thing that really gets under people’s skin, it’s gross undead children. They’re like rats. They don’t know they’re repulsive. They just are.
  5. 2013 Zombie of the Year (Best Overall) If you’re classically gross, have a witty theme or are pulling off the compound fracture so well you make everyone cringe, you may get the most coveted prize of the event.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at their bloody best on Saturday, October 26th at 1pm at The Landing at Byrd Park. Check us out at our site’s Event Info page or on our Facebook event page for all of the gory details!
