Annual Halloween Open House


Each year the UTBZ hosts a fall festival. This annual event offers FREE Family Fun, Open to All. Typically scheduled at the end of October, keep us on your calendar!

The 2023 Pumpkins & Pillbugs Halloween Bug Zoo Bash was a huge success! There were approximately 500 attendees with 215 being CFAES staff, faculty, or students (and their families).  The event was a partnership between The Ohio State University CFAES Graduate Student Advisory Council, CFAES Wooster Staff Council, the CFAES Department of Entomology's Graduate Student Association and United Titanium Bug Zoo. This partnership helped make this event bigger and more inclusive than ever!
