Tickets will NOT be available at the door.

We’ve placed a limit on attendance to ensure proper social distancing, as well as provide a better experience for guests ensuring that large crowds do not form.

Saturday, October 31 | 8am - 5pm

Come and safely celebrate Howl-O-Ween at The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens! Children are encouraged to dress up in their favorite costumes and explore the Zoo for a socially-distant and family-friendly adventure. We’ve adapted the day’s activities to include a self-guided scavenger hunt, and be sure to grab a Scales, Claws, and Teeth, Oh My! program to see your favorite animal receive a special pumpkin enrichment experience during your visit. In place of trick-or-treating we will hand out pre-stuffed Boo in a Bag treat bags to children ages 12 and under, while supplies last. 

The event will take place on Saturday, October 31 from 8 am – 5 pm, with last admissions at 4 pm. Due to capacity limitations, advanced reservations are required through our online ticketing system. Free for members or with paid park admission.
