Boo Bash! at the Buffalo Zoo 2022

October 13, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - October 15, 2022 @ 10:00 pm

Everyone’s favorite event of the season is back—Boo Bash at the Buffalo Zoo returns for another spook-tacular night of fun! Get into the Halloween spirit at our fang-tastic after-hours party for adults-only (21+, valid ID required). Make your way through the Trail of Treats featuring bewitching bites and spell-binding cocktails. Have a howling good time dancing the night away with our DJ, be mesmerized by our group of curious characters, get your photo with the Sanderson Sisters (they might even dazzle us with a performance of “I Put a Spell on You”), and keep your eyes peeled for other spooky surprises lurking in the shadows! Give us “pumpkin” to talk about and don your best costume or keep it casual for this “fa-boo-lous” evening at the Buffalo Zoo. Make sure to get here early so you can wish your favorite animals “Happy Halloween!” before they head to bed at dusk. Space is limited so get your tickets today—it’s sure to be a gourd of a good time!
