Where Every Family Matters

Nashville Zoo Offers 17 Nights of Boo

Ring in the spooky season with the family and enjoy fall-themed activities, special animal shows and plenty of treats.

Nashville Zoo’s annual Boo at the Zoo will run October 14 – 30 from 5 to 9 p.m. nightly. 

Kids will receive a souvenir bag that they can use to collect candy at 10 treat stations on a pathway through the Zoo. Guests will experience magical lit scenes around the Zoo, spot giant hay creatures, ride the Scary-Go-Round carousel and can boogie over to the Monster Mash dance area.

Families can also visit the Zoo’s pumpkin patch and pay to paint their own pumpkin. Watch some of the Zoo’s ambassador animals demonstrate their natural abilities at the special-themed animal shows that will take place every night at 5:45, 6:45 and 7:45 pm. Guests can also see flamingoes, tigers and bears in their habitat until 8 p.m. each night.

Tickets for Fridays through Sundays are $21 for everyone ages 2 and up. Tickets for Mondays through Thursdays are $18 for everyone ages 2 and up. Children under age 2 are free and members save $3 per ticket. Please note that every person, including children ages 2 and under, will need a ticket reservation to enter the event.
