WILD FALL

Super. Natural. Spectacular. 

Here at Denver Zoo, we’re passionate about ALL wildlife, even the creatures that inhabit only our wildest dreams! As you explore the Zoo, the creatures that inhabit our collective imagination will come to life—from mysterious beasts of lore like Bigfoot to dragons, sea monsters and more.

Wild Fall transforms our 84-acre campus into pure “falloween” fun, featuring roaming costumed characters, creature-carved pumpkins, festive food + drink, and special animal demos that connect these supernatural beings to the real-life natural world. With the crisp autumn weather, colorful leaves and eerie extras, it’s a truly magical time to see a new side of your Zoo!

  • Special spooky cocktails + festive autumnal eats 
  • Creature-themed professional pumpkin carvings 
  • Creepy-crawly animals to meet + greet (if you dare)
