Join us as the fifth annual Long Beach Zombie walk transforms into LONG BEACH ZOMBIE WALK MUSIC & ARTS FEST – a full day of live music on three stages, gourmet food trucks, makeup effects artists, zombie artists, horror authors, games, and more!

This year’s event will take place on Long Beach’s massive, 9.4-acre Marina Green Park (map), which will be transformed into a playpen for ghouls and gals of all ages. Music starts at 2pm in Shoreline Village and the Zombie Infected Zone Gates open at 3pm!  Advance tickets are now on sale at, and tickets will also be available at the door (though we advise you save yourself the lines, and buy early!).  Children 12 and under are free!  

We couldn’t let the zombies have all brain-eating fun, so LBI will be hosting the RESISTANCE stage featuring your favorite human bands from around town who will help us drive away the zombie hoards with their rock! The stage is FREE and open to all ages! Let’s just hope that we don’t get overrun by zombies! Join the zombie fun and make sure to check out the killer line-up of talent at Long Beach’s PREMIER Halloween event!
