The safest zone is at home, citizens. In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, and with the health of everyone being our number one priority, we are cancelling this year's Nightmare on Chicago Street.

For more information about the impact of COVID-19 locally, read the following release from the City of Elgin, and follow their website for important updates as we all continue to do what we can to keep ourselves, and others, healthy and safe.

is at home.


For the past nine years, the Zombie Defense Initiative has given citizens an experience that they could find nowhere else. Until now.  This year the Nightmare isn't about battling the Zombie Menace, but it is about celebrating a cure. This year, more than ever, we need to have a happening that will unite citizens looking for escape.
