March 24-April 17 • Activities run noon-4pm Thurs-Sun
xZOOberance Spring Festival

Bring on spring! We’re celebrating all the colorful new life and growing excitement of the season with an expanded xZOOberance spring festival presented by Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Corn Marketing Council.

The Bicentennial Pavilion will be buzzing with energy from live entertainment on the main stage. Dance and sing along, or just sit and enjoy the beautiful landscape filled with oversized pinwheels, animal-shaped topiaries and larger-than-life flowers.

At the Bee Study, can chat with beekeepers and see the tools they use to care for honeybees. Meet Polly Pollen and discover the importance of pollinators. Plus, children can enjoy story time, learn the bee dance and try their hand at the pollen toss game.

Additional activities will keep everyone hopping. Animal-inspired yoga will have you stretching up tall like a giraffe, spreading their wings like a macaw and balancing on one leg like a flamingo. Plus, make memories at the beautiful Fly with the Butterflies photo op presented by PNC and express your creativity with a flowery craft.

Best of all, xZOOberance is free for Zoo members!

Jiffy Lube's environmental commitment

Before Jiffy Lube came along, over 70% of all oil changes in Indiana were done by individual car owners, many of whom would then dump the old oil wherever they could. That percentage is now closer to 20% plus Jiffy Lube provides a drop off spot for waste oil generated by these “do-it-yourselfers,” further reducing the impact of waste oil dumping. Jiffy Lube collects and stores the waste oil until it is picked up by recyclers/re-refiners, helping keep our waterways clean.
