ZOOtoberFest – Every Weekend in October


Come to SF Zoo to welcome our favorite season… FALL! Every weekend in October, go on an adventure in “Harvest Hallow” for access to new and exciting attractions. Navigate through 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. Jump in the bounce house, challenge your friends to a friendly game of ring toss and use our festive Harvest Hallow setting for photo ops – all free with paid admission to San Francisco Zoo & Gardens!

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. You might even want to get up and dance!
