*POSTPONED / STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES!* Franklin Park Zoo’s Food Truck Safari

  • Franklin Park Zoo 1 Franklin Park Road Boston, MA, 02121 United States (map)

Join us as food trucks from all over Greater Boston roll into Franklin Park Zoo for a deliciously wild evening! We’re extending regular zoo hours until 8:00 p.m. and inviting in New England’s best food trucks. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase tasty bites while enjoying music, activities, and the Zoo’s animals after hours!

For 21+ guests, stop by the beer garden for a refreshing drink provided by Turtle Swamp Brewing (ID’s will be checked at the bar.)

This year only, venture through our Wicked BIG Bugs exhibit, where roles will be reversed as you find yourself looking up into the eyes of an 8-foot-tall tarantula, or at the tail of a mighty emperor scorpion looming 15 feet in the air! Wicked BIG Bugs admission is free during this event from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.
