Special Events

Join us for an array of special Zoo events that are sure to make any season a wild one.

Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

In fall 2024, thousands of carved pumpkins will light up the night at the 6th annual Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular. This one-of-a-kind, family-friendly experience is only at the Minnesota Zoo! On an outdoor trail, you’ll see 5,000 hand-carved pumpkins with not-so-spooky smiles, whimsical grins, and realistic scenes of the wild world. Tickets on sale in September.
