Welcome to the official website of
The Long Beach Zombie Fest and Infamous Zombie Walk
The Annual 2018 Long Beach Zombie Fest will be held October 19-21, at the Rainbow Lagoon in Long Beach, California. Long Beach Zombie Fest scares up a hell of a good time in truly macabre fashion with an assortment of activities for the whole family to enjoy. You're invited to shuffle your corpses to Long Beach for three days of fun this Halloween season. The infamous Zombie Walk in Long Beach will be taking place all three days, too. Costumes are encouraged, but not mandatory. COME DEAD OR ALIVE!
DON'T HAVE A COSTUME? Halloween is a classic holiday for getting things done at the last minute, if at all. Long Beach Zombie Fest takes the stress out of costume shopping by providing a team of killer Hollywood artists from Cinema Makeup School to turn you into a flesh-eating zombie. This service is completely free, too.
The Zombies are Coming...
Join hordes of rotting revelers for Long Beach’s annual zombie outbreak, a THREE DAY invasion of undead music and horror for all ages! This apocalyptic festival is a jam-packed day of live entertainment and a horde of other fun activities.

Mable's 6 Feet Under Haunted Motel is a haunted attraction that's an actual maze. Once you're there, our little girl Mable won't want you to leave. She lives in the motel.... Just when you think you have found your way, she will add another trick to turn you back. Come to the MOTEL. Check in. Then get lost.
It will push you to face your biggest fears! Those who dare to put their hand in the boxes to determine “What is it?” might discover it is filled with giant hissing cockroaches, flesh-eating worms, crickets, stink beetles or maybe something more grotesque. For many, the fear of the unknown will be less frightening than any of the creatures to crawl/slither on them.
