xZOOberance presented by Indiana Soybean Alliance & Indiana Corn Marketing Council

After a long Indiana winter, we could all use a little xZOOberance! We’ve expanded our annual spring festival to feature 16 days of fun with activities running from noon-4pm on event days only.

Need a place for the kids to safely blow off steam and overcome a little cabin fever? The Bicentennial Pavilion will be buzzing with live music and dancing, along with spring-centric art and fun, socially distanced activities. Express your creativity with our take-home craft kits. Seeking your next epic photo op? Look for larger-than-life flowers and pinwheels plus the beautiful Living Wall. Snap a family photo at our beautiful butterfly photo op presented by PNC. And, of course, don’t miss encounters with animals, including goats and chickens.

Just want to unwind with a beverage and a snack? Head to the Cheer Garden anytime! We’re offering a fresh, seasonal menu featuring Bavarian pretzels, kettle chips and kid-friendly refreshments. Also, adults can enjoy craft beer and wine.

With this much to see and do, there’s no question: It’s time to say sayonara to winter and ring in the season we’ve all been waiting for.

Help Us Bring Spring to Life
We're Hiring xZOOberance Actors

Use your love of acting to help bring xZOOberance to life! We're hosting auditions for paid actors from 4-7pm on Jan. 28-29. Email Lauren today to schedule your audition. Come with a one-minute comedic monologue, eight measures of a prepared song (to be sung acapella) and the willingness to improvise!

Music and Entertainment

xZOOberance will feature a unique lineup of acts during each of the 16 days. With a main stage under the Bicentennial Pavilion and the second stage at The Perch, a variety of talents will be showcased to keep you engaged and entertained. All concerts and entertainment are included with Zoo admission.

Fun Times Await With Wild Activities

Stretch out with some animal-inspired yoga. Can you balance on one leg like a flamingo? Or spread your wings like a macaw?

Join in on the fun with other outdoor activities, like the Pollen Toss game, and chat with area beekeepers to learn more about honey bees and other important pollinators. Plus, our take-home craft kits will show you how to upcycle items and express your creative side.

xZOOberance is included with regular Zoo admission
