ZombiCon has been dubbed by Fort Myers city officials as “a bona fide phenomenon”. In just 5 years, this zombie-themed music and art fest has grown from a mere “shin-dig” into what many say is the single largest gathering of party-goers Downtown Fort Myers has ever seen. Ever. Not only does ZombiCon draw a horde of incredible numbers, but it raises an inspiringly diverse one, as well. From infants to elderlies, mo-hawks to John Deere caps, Church-goers to, well, ZOMBIES – this “bona fide phenomenon” has captured the hearts of fun-lovers, local and tourist alike.
ZOMBICON 2012 will take place Downtown Ft Myers, FL, the entire weekend of October 20th and 21st! During the day, ZombiCon will feature a full indoor convention at the Harborside Event Center featuring vendors, workshops, dark art, artists, authors, special guests, costume contests, special effects & make-up demonstrations, interactivities, performances & more! When night falls, ZombiCon 2012 hits the streets in the epic zombie-themed music festival featuring performances, bands & DJs on four stages, dance music, street food, drink specials, and the famous “zombie walk” through the downtown streets of Ft. Myers.
