Boo at the Zoo – Washington Park Zoo

October 21, 2023
Call for details


Spooktacular Halloween fun at the Washington Park Zoo.

Get your costumes together and register early to secure your spot at this year’s Boo at the Zoo.

Your little ghosts and goblins will sink their fangs into goodies from community-based Trick-or-Treat stations spread throughout the Zoo, while also having an erie-sistible time with a wide range of activities, including photo opportunities, spooky props, and BOO-themed animal enrichment.

Regular Admission will apply:

Tickets are $10.00 for Adults, $8.00 for a Child (11-3 yrs), and infants ages 2 and under are free but will require a ticket or an Eventbrite reservation to participate in the trick or treating.

Session 1: Gates open from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with trick or treating ending at 1:00 p.m.

Session 2: Gates open from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. with trick or treating ending at 4:00 p.m.

WPZoo Members are free but will require a ticket that must be picked up at the zoo office before October 19th, 2023. Members will also need to have their current zoo pass and a photo ID to check in at Boo at the Zoo. We will not be able to search the system for membership names on the event date.

Advance tickets are recommended since tickets are limited due to the sponsorship candy supply. Tickets are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend, your ticket purchase will be considered a donation to the zoo. Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite or picked up at the Zoo office while supplies last.

Please dress for the weather. Like Halloween, this is a Rain or Shine event unless severe weather is forecasted. In the event that severe weather causes the Zoo to cancel the event, then a full refund or day pass will be issued for purchased tickets only.
