Pushing DaiZies non-profit for the arts presents:
ZOMBICON 9 FUNDRAISER & DOWNTOWN STREET FESTIVAL!
SATURDAY OCTOBER 17th, 2015
4:00pm – Midnight
It’s time to ready yourself, as Zombicon approaches yet again… Over 20,000 attendees will soon descend upon the historical streets of Downtown Fort Myers for SWFL’s beloved zombie-themed art and music festival.
October 17th, 2015 from 4pm to 12am, the dead will once again rise. This year’s theme: “Fallout: 1985” shrouds the streets in an 80’s throwback, post-apocalyptic mix, with the best entertainment for our legion of deserving undead fans. 5 stages with over 30 live performances include bands, DJs, dance troups, ZombiQueens, fire dancers, aerialists and more! Expect an eclectic mix of street vendors with food and merchandise, including Zombicon Gear tents with official Zombicon 9 T-shirts and shwag! Remember, a portion of the purchase of official gear goes towards Pushing Daizies, Inc, Non-profit for the Arts.
At each entrance, a $5 donation per person will be requested upon entry to help cover the ever-growing event costs, ensuring the future of Zombicon. Pushing Daizies events like Zombicon are all geared toward benefitting the local community through charitable giving (blood drives & canned food) and community support (childrens art programs & scholarships).
It can’t be done without loyal, giving fans!
There will be multiple access points to Zombicon which can be found in the enclosed area map. We will be collecting canned and non-perishable food donations at each entry location to benefit the Gladiolus Food Pantry and the hungry people of our community. If you are feeling extra giving and are super awesome, visit the Lee Memorial Blood Center bus by the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center and donate life-saving blood and receive a free custom T-shirt! Sunstate Academy will also be at it again this year hosting Zombification Stations (makeup booths) with proceeds also going towards charitable efforts. The KidZone is back and will be located on First Street. As always, we recommend bringing children early and at your discretion. NEW THIS YEAR: A kid’s costume contest for 12 and under! Register by 6:30. As night falls, the crowd will thicken and (of course) there will be zombies… lots of zombies! So please use your best judgement when bringing young ghouls and consider leaving by sundown.
Remember, Zombicon is not only about raising the dead, but about raising funds for the community, the kids, the hungry, the sick and amping up creative culture in SWFL! You are the ones who help make all this possible!
