2013 Spring Fecal Fest - Entries now closed
The entry period for Spring Fecal Fest is now over. Lucky entrants who are selected from the lottery will be contacted by Dr. Doo to arrange a pick up time from April 13 through April 28, 2013.
Stay tuned for Fall Fecal Fest details coming up later this year.
What is Fecal Fest?
Get your hands on the most desired compost in Seattle. Woodland Park Zoo’s Spring Fecal Fest is right around the corner. The annual event invites local gardeners to enter a bid to purchase the exotic, highly-coveted Zoo Doo and Bedspread that Dr. Doo, also known as the “Prince of Poo,” the “GM of BM” or the “Grand Poopah,” has been piling all season.
How do I enter the lottery?
Online submissions and postcard entries were accepted March 11 through March 31, 2013. Missed the spring event? Fecal Fest is offered twice yearly, with the Fall Fecal Fest usually taking place in September.
What happens if I am selected?
Entries will be randomly selected according to supply and demand. Dr. Doo will contact the lucky drawn entries only. The lucky winners load the compost using shovels provided by the zoo. Pick up dates are April 13 through April 28, 2013.
In addition to our popular Zoo Doo compost, you can enter for a chance to purchase Bedspread, a composted mulch made from the manures and bedding of the zoo’s non-primate herbivores. Bedspread is like Zoo Doo but contains higher amounts of wood chips and sawdust. It is excellent fertile mulch for perennial beds and woody landscapes such as native gardens, rose beds, shrubs, tree rings or pathways, and is an ideal mulch and soil builder for Northwest gardens.
