Boo at the Zoo

Please note, this event has expired.

Presented by Nashville Zoo at Grassmere at Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, Nashville TN

Oct 11 - 27 2019
Boo at the Zoo

Grab your favorite costume and join Nashville Zoo for 10 nights of delightful fun at Boo at the Zoo during the Zoo’s annual Halloween traditions!

Festive Fun

Fall Festival Field features carnival games, bounce houses, dance parties, a corn pit and more. The Howl-O-Ween Hayride takes riders on a trip through the Zoo’s backroads to discover magical scenes. Trick-or-treat around the Zoo trail and uncover favorite treats made with sustainable palm oil. Enjoy special animal, science and magic shows, and grab a photo with a princess, superhero or villain. Visit the Frightful Farm to take a Dying Traditions home tour or brave the Haunted Barn.


Most animals go to bed early, but a few favorites like to stay up late. You can see Andean bears and Sumatran tigers until 6:30 pm, and antelope, zebra, ostrich and flamingos until 8:30 pm.


Kids can expect to visit about a dozen treat stations, collecting 1-2 pieces of candy at each. Bring your favorite reusable bag or container to trick-or-treat! Please note, trick-or-treating is intended for children only.
