About Fall Fest
For Wildlife. For All. For Fall! Dive into the wonderful world of autumn, from picking the perfect pumpkin to clambering up a hay mountain, with Lincoln Park Zoo’s fifth annual Fall Fest. This free, family-friendly celebration injects the heart of Chicago with a little harvest fun each year from September–October.
This year’s festival features ticketed attractions throughout the zoo, including a Ferris wheel, corn maze, corn pool, fun slide, inflatable obstacle course, and more. Guests can also enjoy animal chats, musical entertainment, a pumpkin patch, professional pumpkin carvers, and fall-themed enrichment for the animals!
