Night of the Living Zoo: An Adults-Only Halloween Party on Oct. 25

Featured Image

Dress up in your scariest costume and head down to the National Zoo on October 25 for one of the spookiest nights around. What’s the occasion? Night of the Living Zoo, an adults-only dark carnival that allows zoo-goers to celebrate Halloween with a DJ dance party, a costume contest, and after-hours access to the animal houses and exhibits (along with plenty of food and drink, of course). 

Tickets start at $40 ($30 for Fonz members) and include two beer/wine tickets. Want to enjoy a truly one-of-a-kind evening? Consider upgrading to VIP admission to get extra drink tickets, access to exclusive animal viewings, a private dance party room, and more. Best of all, proceeds from the party benefit the zoo’s animal habitats and educational programming. Space is limited and tickets are expected to sell out, so be sure you head over to the website and reserve your spot online.
