Guests at Denver Zoo for Wild Fall

For the entire month of October, Denver Zoo will transform into Colorado’s wildest destination for fall adventure and exploration. As guests wander around the Zoo throughout the day, they’ll discover the creatures that inhabit their imaginations come to life—from mysterious beasts of lore like Bigfoot to dragons, sea monsters and more. The experience continues with roaming costumed characters, creature-carved pumpkins, festive food and drink, and special animal demos that connect these supernatural beings to the real-life natural world. All Wild Fall activities are part of regular daytime admission and take place throughout normal daytime hours starting at 8:30 a.m. for members and 10 a.m. for the general public. Tickets are available at

And on select evening (Oct. 7, 14, 21 and 28-31), trick-or-treating is back and better than ever with Trick-or-Treat Trail, a limited-admission event with spooky surprises and eight stations serving up wildlife-friendly candy from companies that have committed to using only sustainably-sourced palm oil in their products. An additional $20 ticket provides access to a reusable trick-or-treat bag and 30˜40 pieces of candy; a Monster Mash dance party; festive photo opportunities with characters and sets; special spooky cocktails and festive autumnal eats; and exclusive animal demos with creepy-crawly critters.

Finally, for the 18 and up crowd, the Zoo is offering two fall-themed events as part of its popular Adulting with the Animals series. Oktoberfest (Thursday, Oct. 6), features Bavarian dishes, live music from the Polkanauts, a yodeling contest, and more; and Monster Masquerade (Thursday, Oct. 27) includes special Animal Ambassador appearances, a costume contest and a live DJ. Tickets for both events are $35 per person and only available in advance.

Members and guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance due to the popularity of all fall events and likelihood that many days and timeslots will sell out. For more information about Wild Fall and Adulting with the Animals, and to purchase tickets, visit
