Howl-O-Ween at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo

Howl-O-Ween is a yearly Halloween-themed event at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo.  This event features activities and attractions gauged towards children from 8-15, although brave youngsters have found the event to be quite enjoyable. Brave children (and parents!) can enter our haunted attractions: The Haunted Hayride, Farmer Beardsley’s Farmstead, and the Ghastly Greenhouse. For the more timid, there are events such as magic shows, face painting, fortune tellers, dancers and more. The ultimate goal of any good Halloween event is to get a few screams from you, so parents of sensitive children should consider this before entering a haunt.

Tickets for Howl-O-Ween are $12 presale & for Zoo members (see below to purchase) and $15 on the night of the event.  Your ticket purchase includes two haunted houses, haunted hayride, all perfomances, facepainting, carousel rides & more.  Food and beverage are not included, but the Zoo’s Peacock Cafe is open during the event.  Parking at the Zoo is free of charge.
