Fridays - Sundays September 30 - October 30. This FREE admission, family-friendly fest invites guests to enjoy the fresh, crisp fall air and partake in harvest fun, from picking the perfect pumpkin to devouring sweet treats and festive drinks.
In addition to autumn-themed animal enrichment and musical entertainment, the zoo’s over-the-top fall pop-up bar, Patch’s Pumpkin Bar & Grill, returns to offer seasonal food, drinks, décor, and spectacular views of Pepper Family Wildlife Center. In true fall fashion, visitors can pick the perfect pumpkin at the zoo’s pumpkin patch located outside the Gift Shop. Additionally, guests can marvel at the masterpieces created by professional pumpkin carvers and attend a drag story time.
Fall Fest features several ticketed experiences, including a Pumpkin Walk at Pritzker Family Children’s Zoo with live professional pumpkin carvers on Saturdays and Sundays, a Harvest Maze, various rides (including a 65-foot Ferris wheel, Fun Slide, and Pirate’s Revenge), Lionel Train Adventure, and the AT&T Endangered Species Carousel.
