Entry Into Biohazard Zone

Warning! Walkers must PURCHASE TICKETS to participate. Advance prices are only $5 each, and your whole horde can enter with a “buy five, get one free” deal. Mini zombies under 3 yrs old get in for free, and a small eTix fee will apply to all online sales. The ticket price increases to $10 on the day of the walk, and are available for purchase at the box office located just inside the Michigan Avenue entrance of the Lansing Center.

Invasion Schedule

The 12th Annual Downtown Lansing Zombie Walk is Sunday October 23, 2022 with registration starting at 3pm by Exhibit Hall C inside the Lansing Center. Arrive early to enjoy the festivities at How-To Halloween, and then at 4pm is the Best Zombie Contest on the main stage. Afterwards, we’ll take our first group photo and you’ll receive final instructions from the zombie leaders. The horde will then shuffle out to the streets and strike fear in the hearts of onlookers as they slowly make their way towards the Capitol with a police escort. The spectacle continues as we gather on the landmark steps for the most amazingly horrific photo shoot that Mid-Michigan has ever seen. 

The Infected

All ages of the undead are invited! Whether you're one of the walking dead, a horror character, zombie hunter or an unlucky victim, everyone is welcome. Inside the Lansing Center, there are wide entry doors and easily accessible elevators for wheelchairs, and survival vehicles along with pets can join in the fun too. The event is about as family friendly as a zombie walk can be, but might not be suitable for the squeamish.

BYOB (Bring Your Own Brains)

Be sure to be fully “zombified” when you arrive, and please bring donations in support of the Greater Lansing Food Bank. Don’t forget your wallets to shop at the vendor booths and to purchase some official merch. Kids 13 and under can bring a bag for indoor trick-or-treating. The North Point Cafe will be open right across from our exhibit hall with a wide variety of food and beverage choices (including grilled items) available at reasonable prices.

Precarious Prizes

Get entered in a drawing for a bloodcurdling bag of prizes worth $100 (which includes tickets to next years event) by dropping off your nonperishable food items for the Greater Lansing Food Bank at our reception booth when you arrive. We are also giving away a total prize package valued at over $200 in our Best Zombie Contest with adult and kid categories.

Dead Dogs

Although friendly pets are welcome on the actual walk, they are not allowed inside the Lansing Center except for certified service animals.

Parking During The Apocalypse

There are many of public parking lots in the downtown area, but we recommend finding a nearby spot at a meter because it’s free to park all weekend long.
