Pumpkin Bash at Woodland Park Zoo

Pumpkin Bash—it's a Halloween smash for all ages

Pumpkins for the animals, trick-or-treating, and more are in store for little goblins and ghosts at Woodland Park Zoo’s family-friendly Pumpkin Bash. See how pumpkins bring out the animals’ wild instincts as hippos chomp, meerkats dig, and bears crunch their way through the festive treats. Activities free with zoo admission or membership.

PLUS: Don't miss Boomazium!

Zoomazium, the zoo’s indoor nature play space, will be transformed into a Halloween-themed Boomazium, where not-so-scary storytelling, costumed puppet shows, face painting (additional fee), games and more are sure to delight the kids. Mad Science programs will be offered 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. in the Rain Forest Food Pavilion. 


Exclusive Pumpkin Bash Discount

During Pumpkin Bash, one child 12 years and under in costume is admitted FREE with a paid adult (cannot be combined with any other discount or promotion).
