Rock Fest’s First Zombie Crawl: Friday the 13th

You know that the 25th Annual Rock Fest is happening during July’s Friday the 13th, and we want you to know that we’ll be holding Rock Fest’s first Zombie Crawl on that exact date.

What is a Zombie Crawl, you ask?

It’s where Rock Fest fans gather, dressed as zombies (you know, gore, blood, decay, etc.). You’ll walk, stumble or shuffle, crawling and groaning throughout the concert grounds to celebrate Rock Fest’s Friday the 13th.

Here are some excellent tips on how to dress like a zombie:


However grotesque you want to get is entirely up to you. Typically, zombie makeup includes a white/grey face, dark circles under the eyes, lots of blood and the use of latex gashes/bites/wounds/decay. Colored or zombie-type contacts add dimension that’s bound to send a chill down anyone’s spine.

Zombie Weddings are quite popular. What better way to reuse that beautiful, white dress? Pair up now, crawl together later.


Fake blood is as much a staple for a zombie costume as much as music is at a music festival. You can make your own at home or purchase it online. We suggest you bring at least one body’s worth (that’s about 1.5 gallons).


There are many types of zombies, including the zombie wedding couple, zombie nurses, and general zombies showing lots of gory, gaping wounds. Clothing doesn’t have to be nice, as it’s best ripped, tattered, and stained. The dirtier and grungier, the better.
