Boo at the Akron Zoo is a non-scary trick or treat experience for all ages that runs Saturdays and Sundays from10:30 (Presale)-7:30pm. All guests must purchase tickets, either an observer or treater, before entering the event and can be purchased pre-sale or day of the event. Presale tickets gain entry at 10:30 a.m. and all treat stations close by 7:30 p.m. Treaters will have a candy passport allowing them to collect candy at each station. The entire zoo is open for guests to enjoy. Boo at the Zoo is one of your Akron Zoo’s main events. As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on our revenue from the concessions, gift shop, admissions, carousel, etc. These monies allow us to provide our animals with the best possible care. In addition to our earned revenue, the Akron Zoo receives funding from a Summit County tax levy, private donations, and fundraisers, such as Boo at the Zoo. In order to keep costs low, we rely on assistance from volunteers for this great event.
