Dress up in costume for one of San Francisco Zoo & Garden’s most popular family Halloween events, “Boo at the Zoo”, on Saturday and Sunday, October 28 & 29! Trick-or-treat at multiple stations throughout the Zoo and watch animals gobble up gourds and enjoy Halloween-themed enrichment treats during the Pumpkin Stomp & Chomp. Brave the Haunted Nature Trail, decorated especially for the occasion with not-so-scary ghosts, goblins and more! Have a creepy, crawly critter adventure at the Insect Zoo, teaming with more than a thousand multi-legged bugs.
The last weekend of October is also the final opportunity to catch “ZOOtoberFest” with entertainment for all ages. Located near the Lion Fountain, “Harvest Hallow” houses San Francisco’s largest Hay Maze, a 5,000-square-foot structure built with 600 bales of straw! There’s ample seating, pumpkins, and festive fall décor for a family photo op!
The “Zoo Brew Haus” at The Depot Grill is pouring a great selection of specialty beers in a keepsake mug. Choose from a full menu of German-inspired dishes, like beer-braised bratwurst with Guinness mustard and Sauerkraut! During lunch, dine to the upbeat sounds of a live band playing traditional European polka music. You might even want to get up and dance! Grab a seat and stay for three musical performances from 12noon - 3pm.
