Enjoy Adults-Only Halloween Evening at the Indianapolis Zoo

Craft brews, Halloween activities and amazing animals — it all adds up to an incredible evening for adults only at Zoolala 2019 presented by Scarlet Lane Brewing Co.

The wildest Halloween party in Indy returns to the Indianapolis Zoo on October 24, beginning at 6:30pm with VIP access followed by general admission from 7:30-10:00pm.


Twenty of Central Indiana’s top craft breweries and cideries will serve free beverage samples throughout the night. The Zoo’s eateries will be open late, offering a variety of sandwiches, snacks and other fall favorites for purchase. VIP guests will also receive early admission and all-night access to an exclusive area with additional select beers, snacks and more.

With after-hours Zoo access, all Zoolala guests can also mingle with animals and explore the exhibits while also enjoying Halloween-themed activities. In Pumpkin Town at the Bicentennial Pavilion, party goers can compete at pumpkin bowling or find thrills around every corner of the mirror maze. Plus, attendees can enjoy psychic readings and animal encounters inside the St. Vincent Dolphin Gallery.

Costumes are encouraged, and the best-dressed guests can compete in a costume contest before dancing the night away under the Bicentennial Pavilion on the dance floor presented by Wells Fargo, with music by DJ Lockstar.

Tickets for Zoolala are $50 per person for general admission and $70 for VIP, and are available through the Zoo’s website. All guests must be 21 or older.

This vibrant evening of fun and philanthropy, hosted by the Indy Zoo Council, also supports the Zoo’s animals and programs. Founded in 2011, the Council is comprised of emerging community leaders who are dedicated to supporting the Zoo and its mission of advancing animal conservation. The Council’s signature fundraising event since 2013, Zoolala has raised more than $460,000 to date to help fund the feeding and care of the Zoo’s nearly 1,300 animals and 47,000 plants as well as its global animal conservation initiatives.
