Nightmare On Chicago Street 2022

Downtown Elgin will again be fortifying the city this year to keep everyone safe from the zombie menace. In order to ensure your survival, citizens are encouraged to proceed to the SAFE ZONE of Nightmare on Chicago Street on 10*22*22. 

TICKETS ARE ON SALE RIGHT NOW at To ensure your place in the Safe Zone, buy your tickets today!

Ticket price are $35.00 online. On 10*22*22, ticket prices will increase to $40.00.

Experts in the field have predicted that the worst of the undead uprising will happen on 10*22*22. Elgin’s Zombie Defense Initiative (ZDI) has sanctioned the area of Chicago Street from Douglas to Villa, as well as portions of Douglas Avenue, S. Grove Avenue, S. Spring Street and DuPage Court, as the official boundaries of the SAFE ZONE.

Although the SAFE ZONE has been deemed safe from the undead, we cannot guarantee that order will prevail. Expect businesses to be boarded up, vegetation reclaiming derelict buildings, creatures on the prowl, burning tires and barrels of toxic waste littering the streets, abandoned cars, buses and even airplanes damaged and overturned, as well as stray zombies being taken for processing and study. Do not fear! Your safety is our top priority. Opportunities to purchase food, alcoholic beverages, and goods will be available.

This may be your last shot at survival, so we at the ZDI want to make sure that every human has a good time with five stages of live entertainment and bands, food, drinks, retail vendors, roaming performers, live graffiti artists, a hookah lounge, and special guests like MeTV’s SVENGOOLIE and more! Visit our Thunderdome, Nightmare Alley, and B-Movie Boulevard for extra spooky entertainment!

The ZDI needs you to help keep our citizens safe! Buy your tickets now and escape to the SAFE ZONE of Downtown Elgin on Saturday, October 22, 2022 from 6-11pm at Nightmare on Chicago Street!
