ZooFest is held every year on the last Saturday in October, which in 2017 will be the 28th. Running from 9 am - 5 pm, this day-long festival includes fall-themed crafts and games, special animal feedings and encounters, and even some light concessions. Regular admission prices apply, though you can save a dollar on each entry by bringing a canned food item that we'll donate to Yavapai Food Bank.
Boo at the Zoo is held every October 31st from 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm. Come in costume and trick-or-treat at different stations around the Sanctuary with your favorite animals. Bring a flashlight and see all the nocturnal residents out and about! Special Admission Prices are $4 for HPZS Members and $6 for Non-Members. Skip the line and purchase your tickets in advance. To get your advance tickets stop in at the Gift Shop.
