the safest zone

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.

There will be maps with official boundaries. 

Some of the businesses might appear to be boarded up, vegetation may reclaim derelict buildings, trash may be strewn everywhere, burning tires and barrels of toxic waste littering the streets, abandoned cars, buses and even airplanes damaged and overturned. Do not fear! Your safety is our number one concern. Some steadfast businesses will be open for you to get food, beverages, shelter, and provisions.

We at the ZDI will make sure that every citizen has a good time with three stages of live entertainment, bands, food, drinks, vendors, cage matches in the Thunderdome, live graffiti artists, a hookah lounge, costume contest, special guests like MeTV’s SVENGOOLIE and surprises around every corner.

To maintain some sort of economic health, we are asking for a nominal entrance fee to Nightmare on Chicago Street.

The ZDI needs you to help keep our citizens safe! Get to the safe zone on Saturday, October 24, 2020 from 6pm to 11pm for NIGHTMARE ON CHICAGO STREET!
