Enjoy an otterly fun fall celebration at the Saint Louis Zoo!  During the two weekends of Ottertoberfest, the Zoo will be transformed into an Oktoberfest for the whole family with otter-related games and activities for kids, keeper chats and enrichment, live traditional music and biergartens. The event runs Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 3-11, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

 

Each weekend, the little “pups” can engage in a River Ranger game, an “Otter Says” game and a river otter biofact table. Crafts and other activities are designed for ages 2-10.

 

For the grownups, beer, bratwursts and other specialty concessions will be available at various biergartens. Hear live “oompah” music from noon to 3 p.m. in Schnuck Family Plaza.

 

Keeper chats and enrichment will take place near our two groups of river otters at the Emerson Children’s Zoo and the Chain of Lakes at Historic Hill.

 

Ottertoberfest is sponsored by UnitedHealthcare and Coca-Cola, with media support provided by 106.5 WARH and 92.3 WIL.
