Fall at the Zoo Selfie Sweepstakes

While COVID-19 has pressed pause on our plans for Boo! at the Zoo this year, there's still so much to see and do at Brookfield Zoo this pumpkin season! And if you still want some good reasons to come to the zoo in your favorite Halloween costume, how about because you can snap a selfie and win some prizes? 



Between Dinos Everywhere, the 216 acres of open space and trees, all the outdoor animalsseasonal food and beverages, and so much more, there are plenty of reasons to visit Brookfield Zoo this fall. And while you're here, make sure you snap a selfie with friends and family. You could win cool prizes just by doing that! 


1. Take a solo or group selfie at one of the many selfie spots you'll find across the zoo this fall. There's the giant pumpkin and spooky cat on the South Mall, the scarecrow on the East Mall, the witch on the North Mall, the giant spider at the North Gate entrance, the haunted house by Australia House animals, and more.
2. Share your selfie on any social media platform with the hashtag #BrookfieldZoo. You don't have to wear a costume to be eligible, but we'd love to see them (and we're more likely to share the cool costumes we see!)*
3. That's it! You're automatically entered to win that week's special prize giveaway. We'll contact you if you're chosen and you can pick up your prize on your next trip to the zoo!
4. Come back the following week to post a new selfie and enter again for the next prize!

Every selfie posted to social media and tagged with #BrookfieldZoo during these timeframes will be eligible for the corresponding prizes below. Click here for sweepstakes rules.
