Annual Events

Family Day at the Roger Williams Park Zoo  • August
Bring the kids to our annual warm and fuzzy (and furry and feathered) family day! We typically have a meet-and-greet with one of the park’s critters, and then eat lunch in an exclusive area reserved just for us. After lunch, the rest of the day is yours to enjoy at the Zoo.

URI Night with the PawSox • August
Enjoy a great night of PawSox baseball and summer family fun at Pawtucket's McCoy Stadium at this popular August event.

Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular • October
Our hugely popular Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular is held at the end of October at the Roger Williams Park Zoo. At this special (and slightly spooky) event, URI alums and their families gain entrance to the park before the general public, and are treated to an exclusive harvest buffet in a private area, after which park staff leads the way through a trail studded with hundreds of intricately carved and illuminated pumpkins.
