Greetings once again gang! Our favorite month is finally upon us and with that comes the annual Pittsburgh Zombiefest sponsored by The It’s Alive Show and Straub Beer. Check out this little video from last year's event!

The fun begins this Saturday, October 11th from 12PM to 10PM, this time at the David Lawrence Convention Center (1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd Pittsburgh, PA 15222). The all-day undead extravaganza returns with the area's best bands, vendors, and zombie activities with many surprises in store.
New for this year - Zombie Dance Party and Dance Contest. Food and Straub Beer will be sold at this year's event along with all the craziest merchandise. Come in your best zombie make-up or new for this year, cosplay as a survivor.
Also - Zombie Hunters are welcome this year. Come as your favorite character from AMC's The Walking Dead! We will be assembling cast look-alikes for a segment on The It's Alive Show. Walkers welcome!
Sadly, this is no longer a free event and will cost $12.00 for adults and $5.00 for kids (children under 5 get in for free).
*Parental Advisory: Due to the graphic nature of the costumes and make up, Zombiefest is a "PG13" event. Zombiefest typically has attendees in make up gorier than the scariest horror films. The bands are loud, sexy costumes can be revealing, and beer will served at the event. In other words, it's awesome.
Also, no functional or dangerous weapons and no containers of fake (or real) blood will be allowed at Zombiefest. No dripping costumes.
One great thing that hasn’t changed is that this is all for a worthy cause as well - The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank will be accepting non-perishable donations so don’t forget to bring some spare canned goods to help feed the living.
As always, more details can be obtained through the Official Pittsburgh Zombiefest Website. Hope to see you there!
