​Animals and All That Jazz

Thanks for making Animals and All That Jazz a Groovin' Time! Check back soon for 2016 details.

Bring your friends to sit back and enjoy a longstanding Thursday night tradition at the Indianapolis Zoo. This summer concert series is from 5:30-8:30pm and features sensational music from all genres of jazz.

Come play early at the Zoo and stay late for a night of jazz with arts and entertainment presented by Macy's! Walk the Zoo while listening to the music, show off your moves on the dance floor presented by Dunkin' Donuts or simply enjoy a relaxing evening with friends. Experience the ambience of the Zoo after hours along with:

  • Music: Performed live from 5:30-8:30pm

  • Food: Great specialty food stations offer a new menu available for purchase each night

  • Beverages: A full bar, featuring beer sampling from Sun King Brewery

  • Animals: On exhibit until 7pm

  • Rides: Available until 7pm with member specials available on a different ride each night​


​Concerts are weather protected under the Zoo's beautiful Party Pavilion. Tables are open on a first-come, first-serve basis. Lawn chairs are welcome! ​


  • Concerts are free for Zoo members and included with regular admission.

  • Make the most of your day by coming out early and staying late.

  • Save $2 at the front gate by bringing a Dean's milk jug to recycle.
