BOO! at the Zoo

BOO! at the Zoo presented by U.S. Cellular® is Knoxville’s largest Halloween event featuring several nights of not-too-scary Halloween fun perfect for preschool and elementary-aged children. A Halloween tradition for 33 years, BOO! at the Zoo is a family event featuring trick-or-treating along the BOO! Trail, where little trick-or-treaters can fill their bag with goodies as they make their way through the zoo. Each night of BOO! at the Zoo will have a variety of entertainment.

No weapons or toy weapons of any kind are allowed on Zoo property. That includes either real or toy guns, swords, knives, nunchuk’s, etc.

Please note, October 8th is Annual Passholders night!
