With a tradition dating back to 1967, Christmas at the Zoo was the first zoo lights event in the nation, and it’s an honor to consistently be ranked among the nation’s best.
Year after year, thousands of families from Central Indiana and beyond come to celebrate the holidays with the Indianapolis Zoo. For our 53rd season, we’ve added more lights and extra nights. Opening this year on Nov. 20, Christmas at the Zoo continues through Dec. 30, closed only on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Festivities run 5-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Sunday, and 5-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
