Fun For Less in Chicago: Lincoln Park Zoo Fall Fest

Lashaunta Moore

Guests can enjoy free entertainment, a pumpkin patch, professional pumpkin carvers, and more free and ticketed attractions.

This is a part of Lashaunta Moore's written series 'Fun For Less in Chicago: Memories Without Financial Stress.' Most places are free to enter; the rest will be low-cost. Everyone deserves to have fun.

Chicago is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With its breathtaking downtown attractions and food that satisfies all of your hungry needs, there's no other place like it. You don't always have to spend a lot of money to have a good time; in some areas, you won't have to spend a dime unless you choose to.

Lincoln Park Zoo's Fall Fest is almost here, so prepare to celebrate the new season with your family. The Fest is in its eighth year, bringing harvest-time fun to the city every year from September- October. The best part: it's FREE.

Guests can enjoy free musical entertainment, a pumpkin patch, drag storytime, professional pumpkin carvers, and fall-themed enrichment for the animals!

Some fun ticketed attractions include:

  • AT&T Endangered Species Carousel
