Early Access to Christmas at the Zoo

From 4-5pm on Nov. 23 — the opening day of Christmas at the Zoo presented by Donatos and Teachers Credit Union — our Zoo Members can enjoy exclusive early access to Santa’s Village, one of the newest additions to our event.

Opened in 2017 under our Bicentennial Pavilion, magical scenes of wonder and light will fill Santa’s Village where guests can decorate delectable cookies in Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen, encounter wintertime animals, see mementos from Santa’s world travels and meet the Jolly Ol’ Elf himself inside his charming study.

Then stay for a remarkable night as we kick off our 50th year of Christmas at the Zoo with beautiful lights and activities all around the Zoo, continuing until 10pm!
