Calling all ghosts, goblins, and witches – join us for Boo at the Zoo! Due to its popularity, we are extending Boo at the Zoo to four Friday, Saturday, and Sundays in October (October 8-31, 2021). Enjoy this family-friendly Halloween event with a spooky animal-themed scavenger hunt and fun goodies.
Grab a program as you enter the Zoo and follow the clues on our self-guided scavenger hunt to find all the trick-or-treating animals hidden throughout the Zoo.
Instead of trick-or-treating in the Zoo this year, we are safely handing out pre-stuffed goodie bags to all children.*
Remember to dress in costume when you visit and tag Oakland Zoo on social media to enter our Halloween costume contest. Winners will receive 4 tickets to our nighttime lantern festival this year, GLOWFARI, from November 12 – January 30!
Come and safely celebrate Halloween at Oakland Zoo this year!
*Goodie bags are available while supplies last. Treats may contain milk, soy, nuts, or gluten.
