ZOOtoberfest 2018


Enjoy extended hours until 7 p.m. to enjoy ZOOtoberfest the last two weekends in October!  Get the most out of San Francisco’s warm Fall weather to stay later at the Zoo to see animals that are normally more active during dusk, like big cats, wolves and lemurs. Please note that some animal areas, including the Children’s Zoo, will close at their regularly scheduled times. 

Be sure to visit San Francisco’s largest hay maze, a 5,000-square-foot structure made from 600 bales of straw and incorporates play areas within the design. 

For kids AND adults, SF Zoo’s “Zoo Brew Haus” at The Depot Grill is pouring a great selection of brews, and cooking a full smorgasbord of German-inspired dishes, like beer-braised bratwurst with Guinness mustard and Sauerkraut! During lunch, dine to the upbeat sounds of a live band playing traditional European polka music. 

ZOOtoberfest is free with paid admission to San Francisco Zoo & Gardens! Click here to purchase admission tickets online.
