Thanksgiving Fall Festival at Assiniboine Park Zoo

Thanksgiving Fall Festival at Assiniboine Park Zoo

The Assiniboine Park Zoo wants to say “Thank you!” during the Thanksgiving Fall Festival from October 3-12. Zoo visitors can enjoy 25% off regular zoo admission Saturday October 3 through Monday October 12. This will be a weeklong celebration that features family activities, appearances by Winston, the Assiniboine Park Zoo mascot, pumpkin presentations to the animals and more!

Daily activities during Thanksgiving Fall Festival week include pumpkin presentations and a photo booth with a Thanksgiving theme and a festive Chicken Apple Dog feature at the Tundra Grill.

Thanksgiving weekend activities are centred around family activities including face painting, horse shoes and crafting from 11am to 3pm. Photos with Winston (polar bear mascot) will be available from 10am to 2pm.

But wait there’s more! Hudson is turning four years old and Assiniboine Park Zoo is inviting everyone to the party. Taking place daily from October 10 through October 12, visitors can watch Hudson receive a daily birthday treat and the first 100 kids to the Zoo will also get a FREE ice cream treat to celebrate. In lieu of birthday gifts, Assiniboine Park Zoo is inviting the community to help support Winnipeg Harvest and donate non-perishable food items at the Zoo Gate.

The Zoo is open 9 am to 5 pm daily. For full event details please go to
