Prizes and Fiendish Fun Planned for the Hamilton Zombie Walk After-Party

Following the Hamilton Zombie Walk, all ghouls are invited to the Staircase Cafe for a chance to win spooktacular prizes at our freaky, fun, and free after-party (2:30pm - 4:00pm)!

The festivities kick off at the beautiful and historic Staircase Cafe and Theatre (27 Dundurn St. N.) at 2:30pm. After a full day of shambling, you'll definitely want to order a snack or a full-meal from the Staircase's delicious new menu and quench your undead thirst with a full complement of drinks including draft beer and wine. Food and drink orders are cash-only.


Help support Horror in the Hammer's not-for-profit events and film screenings by entering to win some awesome prize packs featuring sinister swag courtesy of Fangoria, Raven Banner Entertainment, MonsterMatt Patterson, Hammer City Records, Prouse Pottery & Soap Co., and more! Winners will be drawn at 4pm.


Get your zombie horde together (4-6 people) and gather your brains to play along with our live zombie trivia contest. The winning team will receive a prize pack filled with goodies from our local sponsors to be hungrily split up among the participants like a fresh victim. Cheaters will be head-shot on sight. In the case of a tie, winner will be decided in a SUDDEN DEATH overtime round.


To enter, you have to sign up and be present at The Staircase (27 Dundurn St. N) between 3:30pm and 4:00pm on Saturday, October 18. Three of our best costumed walkers will win one of these grand prizes.

This experience is designed to be the next level of interactive horror. By choosing to stay in the “Red Zone” tent area you will be sleeping on the hunting ground of an alien head-taking tribe called the Dayaki. If you get caught by the Dayaki and are not freed by dawn, your head will be removed in a ritual of blood to the gods and your head kept as a trophy. All content is strictly for entertainment purposes and at no time will campers ever be in real danger. Lasting 12 hours (8pm-8am), this Camp Halloween Skull Head event is suitable for those 16 and over. http://camphalloween.ca
