ZombiCon is the largest gathering of Zombies (and those who love them) in the State of Florida, and possibly the WORLD! ZombiCon has been dubbed by Fort Myers city officials as “a bona fide phenomenon”. In just 6 years, this zombie-themed music and art fest has grown into what many say is the single largest gathering of party-goers Downtown Fort Myers has ever seen. Ever!

It began humbly in 2007 when about 350 artists, performers and zombie lovers gathered on The Patio de Leon in Downtown Fort Myers for a celebration of art and zombie culture. Drawing inspiration from George Romero’s DAY OF THE DEAD, which was filmed in the area, participants dressed as their own version of “The Living Dead” and limped through the historic streets of The River District. You don’t just come to the event…you ARE the event.

Today, participants can attend theatrical workshops, have professional horror make-up applied, dance to live music, enjoy a variety of unique performances, and of course, compete for the Best Zombie Costume! The Zombie virus is spreading at an alarming rate! In just 6 years, ZOMBICON has grown to over 20,000 attendants, with an attempt to break the World Record for “Largest Zombie Gathering”.
