Featured Zoo Events

Annual Art Show

Each year the Zoo holds an annual art show for Utah artists. This exhibit was started to provide Utah artists an opportunity to display their works of wildlife and “wildnature” in a setting complimentary to their work. This show has grown to be one of the best venues in Utah for viewing wildlife and nature art. Learn more about the show and how to submit art work for our next show.

Boo at the Zoo

This Utah Halloween tradition is one of the Zoo’s most popular yearly events. It is family-friendly and provides a safe environment for children 12 and under to trick-or-treat at booths set up all around the Zoo. Boo at the Zoo is FREE with paid Zoo admission so bring all the kids to the Zoo for some Halloween fun!  Learn more. 



You enter this Zoo with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension – a dimension of sights. A dimension of frights. A dimension of lights. You’re moving into a land of both animals and lighted displays, of fun and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into…BooLights!  Learn more.

Member-Only Events

Our members are very important to us, here at Hogle Zoo. To show our appreciation, we host special members-only events through out the summer season. Members can experience the magic of the Zoo at twilight with our “Sunset Safari” nights. Or, for those early risers, our “Sunrise Safaris” give members a chance to see the Zoo’s animals greet the day before we open to the public. For more information, click here or contact the Membership Office at 801-584-4542.
