Free Day October 8

Enter to win tickets to the next Denver Zoo Free Day on October 8th!

Denver Zoo is offering seven (7) Community Free Days throughout 2022 for anyone in our community. To provide the best experience for all of our guests, we are offering a limited number of tickets for each Free Day, using an online lottery system. Anyone who wants to attend a Free Day must register online during the open lottery period for a chance to obtain up to five (5) vouchers for its corresponding Free Day. Follow the steps below to enter—best of luck, and hope to see you this year!

How Our Free Day Lottery Works:

Step 1: Check our website for lottery open dates. The lottery for the October 8 Free Day is open from Sept. 26 - Sept. 30
Step 2: During the 5-day lottery registration period, head to our website to enter the lottery.
Step 3: Winners will be notified by email, so check your inbox daily for your vouchers.
Step 4: If you win, you MUST click the link in the email to reserve your tickets and entry time.
Step 5: On your designated Free Day, bring your tickets to the Zoo—and have a great day!
THE FINE PRINT: You may register to win (5) free tickets per transaction. Limit one registration per person, per Free Day. Vouchers and tickets are available ONLINE ONLY. No tickets will be available at the Zoo gate. All guests must have a timed ticket for entry, including children 2 and under. Tickets are valid only for the specific Free Day and entry time you reserved.
