Calling all corpses, monsters, and fiends of all ages, shapes, and states of decay!
It is with great ghoulish gusto that the Toronto Zombie Walk is thrilled to announce that it will again be stalking the city streets on Saturday October 25th for The 2014 Toronto Zombie Walk and Halloween Parade!
Now that the snow covered crypts have begun to thaw, the graveyard ground has softened up and the rigor mortis has been worked out of their moldering, frost bitten muscles, you can almost hear the buzzing of anticipation (or is it flies?) amongst the undead who are working double overtime graveyard shifts to bring this years’ annual cavalcade of cadavers to the confines of Nathan Phillips Square, located right in the worm eaten heart of Canada’s largest cemetery…err…city.
Be sure to keep your gouged eyes peeled and the worms cleared out of your ears, because the Toronto Zombie Walk will be working with Nerf to bring some extra special Zombie Strike action to this years’ event! Keep tombed in…for now!

The Toronto Zombie Walk could not be possible without the
dead-ication and hard work of several volunteers who work year round to ensure that The Toronto Zombie Walk happens.
So, this year we have started a new tradition of Volunteer of the Month to honour the few, the brave, the brain eaters of the living!
The volunteer of the month for April is
Adrienne has been volunteering for the TZW
for 7 years, and is the Head of Security.
She keeps the zombies in line, and ensures that the walk is safe and free from harm for all participants and spectators.
Throughout the year, Adrienne sets aside her Security clothes and gets zombified to lend a severed hand at various TZW events.
The Toronto Zombie Walk is pleased to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation as our charity of choice to help raise public awareness about the importance of learning the three simple steps to hands-only CPR™ through their CPR Makes You Undead campaign to educate and save lives.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation, a volunteer-based health charity, leads in eliminating heart disease and stroke, reducing their impact through initiatives to prevent disease, save lives and promote recovery. Healthy lives free of heart disease and stroke. Together we will make it happen.

From the vaults of 2013:
A Toronto Zombie Walk retrospective
2013 was the year of the ZOMBIE! Zombies were not only everywhere they were also breaking out of their Halloween confines to appear at anytime of year. I was happy to work with the Toronto Zombie Walk to encourage and promote the unleashing of the undead upon the expecting and un~expecting at any time possible.
The wind howled. The chilly rain drops drizzled down. Yet still we carried on... and so did you!
This year's Toronto Zombie Walk & Halloween Parade was a fantastic success and we couldn't have done it without you. With approximately 8,000 souls in attendance the zombies, monsters and ghouls alike proved that a cold, gusty and damp day is just what the witch doctor ordered to set the tone for our ghoulish celebration and we're thankful for your ongoing support.
We would also like to thank our fantastic vendors, as well as our grand marshal Linnea Quigley, the cast from Evil Dead the Musical and The Independents for making the activities at Nathan Philips Square to die for! (Also big thanks to the sound crew and staff at city hall for their assistance throughout the day.) Don't forget to give a severed hand to our security team and volunteers who also helped make the day run safely and smoothly for everyone.
We would also like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to our PARTNERS & SPONSORS.
Without their support the day's events and the walk wouldn't be possible.
