Hoot 'n' Howl
The best Northwest fall event. Ever.
Bring the whole family and take a starlit tram ride through the Free-Roaming Area. Wander our lit paths and admire glowing carved pumpkins. Come in costume and play games, visit treat stations for candy. (Adults, please leave full face masks at home.)
Do some Freaky Food Science in the Kids' Trek Pavilion, vote for your favorite pumpkin. And stop by the Baker Cabin to learn all about bats!
Meet an owl, snake, slug or raccoon, and talk to the keepers who look after them! And keep an eye out for our nocturnal animals - or an ear. You've never heard a wolf til you've heard it at Hoot 'n' Howl.
NOTE: Hoot 'n' Howl is free for under-3.
Hoot 'n' Howl is one of the most popular fall events around the Northwest. And we mean, popular.
