About Walker Stalker
After a last minute decision to take a trip to Senoia, GA, James Frazier and Eric Nordhoff were given the opportunity to venture on the set of The Walking Dead and meet the actors of the hit television series. The duo became enamored with the show and its subject matter and created a podcast to discuss all things Walking Dead. The topic eventually arose of a convention focused around recreating the very same experience that the cast and crew of the show endure every single day. And thus the concept of Walker Stalker Con was born.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the first convention was held in Atlanta in October of 2013. Here, 10,500 fans attended the event over the three-day period. In 2014, three additional regions were added to the tour: Chicago, Boston, and New York/New Jersey.
In 2015, conventions have been seen in San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Orlando, Boston, Philadelphia, as well as a Fan Fest event and The Walking Dead Escape based in San Diego. The year finished up with conventions in Atlanta, and New York/New Jersey. In Atlanta, attendance reached 50,000 over the Halloween weekend. With over 60 guests in attendance, including Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus, Atlanta was the biggest event to date.
Walker Stalker Con is a convention created for fans, by fans. The goal is to have each guest walk away feeling like they’ve had an amazing experience and that they’ve become part of a greater community of zombie lovers. Walker Stalker is an experience that zombie fans won’t be able to find elsewhere.
