We are excited to bring Boo at the Zoo back for the 20th year! In order to do so, we have implemented measures to encourage social distancing among guests and staff and to protect our animals. By purchasing your event ticket, you agree to:
- wear a face mask in any indoor space, as required by the City of New Bedford. 
- hold harmless the BPZOO, Buttonwood Park Zoological Society, and City of New Bedford.

We strongly encourage purchasing your tickets online in advance. Entry is limited each hour and we cannot guarantee that tickets will be available at the door.

From the date and times above, choose when you would like to visit, then move down the page to select the types of tickets you need. (Please check your shopping cart when you check out to make sure you are purchasing the date/time you think you are purchasing!) Members must be signed into the website to receive your member discount -- see more on that below.

If an entry time does not appear as a selection, this indicates the time slot is sold out.

You must arrive within the 30 minute window immediately following your ticket time.
