Nashville Zoo to hold “Boo at the Zoo” October 11th-27th

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – Nashville’s littlest ghosts and goblins are invited to enjoy a night of delightfully frightful fun at the Nashville Zoo’s Boo at the Zoo.

Our annual Halloween tradition is set for 10 nights: October 11th, 12th, 13th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 24th, 25th, 26th and 27th. Boo at the Zoo runs from 5:00pm-9:00pm.

Kids can come dressed in their favorite costume and enjoy carnival games, carousel rides, hayrides, shows and trick-or-treating.

The annual evening event offers families a safe and exciting Halloween experience for kids under age 12. Special areas throughout the event include:

The Storytail Treat Trail uncovers festive treats around every corner. The candy selection is all made with sustainable palm oil and includes favorites like M&M’s, Jolly Ranchers, Skittles and more. Please note, trick-or-treating is intended for children only.

Fall Festival Field features carnival games, bounce houses, corn kernel pit and Howl-O-Ween Hayride, which takes riders on a trip through the Zoo’s backroads to discover magical scenes, festive friends and a stop through the famous Bubble Tunnel.

Enchanted Village offers guests the opportunity to get their picture taken with a princess or superhero, meet a talking pumpkin, and enjoy animal, magic and science shows and other entertainment at this special interactive area.

Frightful Farm is designed for those looking for spooky fun. Take a Dying Traditions home tour and learn superstitions from the Victorian Age or visit the Haunted Barn and brave the zombies that have taken over.

Nashville Zoo members can save $2.00 on each ticket. Ticket prices include all Halloween-themed activities, carousel rides and parking. Additional fees apply for Soaring Eagle zip line and concessions. Advance tickets can be purchased on the Zoo’s website.

We recommend buying tickets ahead of time online. Saturday event nights tend to sell out quickly.
