Enjoy October weekends of free spooky fun at Halloweekends at the Saint Louis Zoo! Come to the Zoo dressed in family friendly costumes and as you walk around to see the animals you'll find non-scary Halloween decorations, watch special pumpkin enrichment treats with the animals, experience costumed character meet-and-greets, enjoy the Family Game Zone, take part in the Pumpkin Stomp 'n Chomp, enjoy fall treats and more. 

Guests can visit the Caribbean Cove, see their favorite Zoo attractions, and get in on the Zoo's Instragram contest using hashtags #Halloweekends, #StlZoo #FallAtTheZoo, and #StlZooBoo.

Family friendly Halloween costumes are encouraged. Costume masks are not premitted for any age. For everyone's safety, the Zoo has implemented enhanced protocols and procedures. Guests are required to wear protective masks/face coverings - which must cover most and mouth - while visiting. More costume policies can be found here.

Halloweekends take place two consecutive weekends, October 17-18, October 24-25 and October 31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Free, timed ticket reservations are required.
