Living Dead Weekend 2020 Announcement
There is a lot of info here, so please read through the whole thing very carefully. We know many people want to have the event postponed so they can reset and make plans when the restrictions and safety concerns are better for travel. We also know many of people want the event to still take place in November, and want to return to the Monroeville Mall again without skipping a year. Thus we are giving you both!
Living Dead Weekend-1985 Monroeville
(with both RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD and DAY OF THE DEAD cast reunions)
is being postponed untill July 2-4, 2021.
This will be the same event we have been planning, with the same quests and same side events. As many know, July 3rd is "Return of the Living Dead Day", and in 2021 it falls on a Saturday, so for the first time ever there will be a cast reunion and celebration of this landmark film on the holiday the fans have created.
All tickets at all levels and tours will transfer to this event date. All Vendors Spaces will transfer too. More details to follow.
PLUS a BONUS Event! On November 7, 2020 (original LDW date)
we are presenting an all new event at the Monroeville Mall.
So if you still want to have an event this year, you need not change your plans. This new event is FREE to all LDW 1985 ticket holders (all levels) and does not invalidate your tickets for July 2-4, 2021. Vendors that are booked for LDW-1985 will receive a free vendor space too!
