Get Ready for a WILD Halloween at the Calgary Zoo

Posted on October 21

Calgary, AB — Looking for something fun to do this Halloween? The Calgary Zoo is hosting two spooktacular events next week to celebrate the season with the return of the popular ZooBOO and Halloween Brunch events. There’s something for ghosts and goblins of all ages to enjoy at the Calgary Zoo!

October 29 – October 31 – ZooBOO
Grab your littles, and head to the zoo for a day of spooky Fall fun! ZooBOO is a chance for your kids to dress up early, trick-or-treat at the zoo, and enjoy seeing their favourite animals. The best part? Your kiddo gets to have fun while supporting an important cause — wildlife conservation! Again this year, the zoo is spreading the fun over 3 days so choose the day that works best for you and head down to the zoo! All activities taking place for ZooBOO are included with day admission or memberships.

October 30 — October 31 — Halloween Brunch
There are no tricks, just treats at the zoo’s Halloween Brunch! Enjoy a spOOky (not scary!) brunch experience in the heart of Destination Africa and support the zoo’s wildlife conservation initiatives while biting a fang-tastically themed breakfast. Stay for ZooBOO and get double the seasonal fun! Head to the zoo’s website for a look at the menu, seating times, and ticket prices.

Both experiences require attendees to be aware that:

  • To enter the Calgary Zoo, visitors 12 years of age and older will be required to show their government-issued ID, along with proof of one of the following:
