The Utica Zombie Walk will return from a three-year hiatus Friday, Oct. 18, 2019, to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
The walk will take place at the Uptown Theatre, located at 2014 Genesee St., Utica
It is free to the public and open to all ages. Participants under the age of 18 are asked to be accompanied by an adult. In lieu of an admission fee, participants are asked to bring one non-perishable pet food or supply item that will be donated to the Stevens-Swan Humane Society of Oneida County. Monetary donations will also be accepted for Uptown Theatre for Creative Arts, a nonprofit that has been restoring and operating the Uptown since taking ownership in 2018.

About the Utica Zombie Walk
The Utica Zombie Walk was an annual grassroots event which was held between 2009 and 2015 at various locations around the Utica area. At its peak, the zombie walk had over 1,000 participants. It raised monetary and non-perishable food donations for several local non-profits such as the Stevens-Swan Humane Society and the Food Bank of CNY. The Utica Zombie Walk’s mission is to provide a safe and fun setting for artistic expression, and to be inclusive of all ages and walks of life. The event relies heavily on the kindness and dedication of a volunteer staff, along with the help of the city of Utica, local media, and local venue owners.
