About

We want to raise the money we need to legally and legitimately host the annual Portland Zombie Walk. The Portland Zombie Walk has never had permits for any of the previous Portland Zombie Walks. We want to ensure the safety and longevity of this event. Our first step is to obtain the proper permits, insurance, and registration to legitimize the 2011 Portland Zombie Walk.

Prior to launching this Kickstarter project we contacted the City of Portland, Pioneer Courthouse Square and Portland Parks & Recreation to negotiate the necessities for an event of this size. We need to raise the money for the application fees, permits, insurance as soon as possible because the city park permits are on a first come first sever basis. This organization will provide positive collaboration with the various departments to ensure the safety and security of everyone.

The transition from an ad hoc flash mob event  to an established street theater event will secure the  longevity of the event. This is a positive response to the concerns of the downtown residences and businesses. A successful transition will create productive partners instead of vocal opponents to an event we all love.

Only through the support of participants, volunteers, and donors can we all make this years event safe, and legal. It is people like YOU that will provide the foundation for years of future generations of living dead.
