DETAILS ABOUT SPOOKTACULAR 2022 WILL BE ADDED AS THE EVENT GETS CLOSER

Spooktacular 2021

Spooktacular is the Utica Zoo’s premiere Halloween and harvest celebration with trick-or-treat stations, food trucks, vendors, animals on walkabout, and – new this year – the Twisted Fairy Tail Trail. This new addition features a spine-tingling journey through mythical animal scenes along the North Trek Trail.

The event will run on October 23 and October 24 from 10am until 3pm both days. The zoo itself will stay open past the festivities until 4:30pm on each day!

The Utica Zoo Spooktacular Harvest Festival is an all-ages event and costumes are encouraged. The cost to participate in Spooktacular activities is $4 plus Zoo admission and includes free parking with shuttle service from Payne Hall Parking Lot at MVCC and the Parkway Recreational Center. For current zoo members, admission is free so the cost would only be $4 per person interested in participating in Spooktacular activities! Visit UticaZoo.org/Membership today to purchase your membership!

The Zoo has begun construction on its new visitor center. Our entrance will temporarily be at the NYPA New York Energy Zone building right next to us!
