Stay after dark and celebrate summer during Nighttime Zoo presented by One Medical, June 16 through September 2. Enjoy live music, fun shows, animal encounters, food, and more!
The fun begins before the sun goes down with an amazing trampoline act, Dr. Zoolittle's special performances, and African-themed entertainment for the whole family. Musicians will serenade and engage guests with tunes ranging from classic rock riffs to jaunty brass band sounds to sweet beats from throughout Africa. A procession of larger-than-life animal puppets headline and end-of-the-evening performance that is sure to wow viewers of all ages.
Young and old alike will want to join in the fun of Zoolahoops and Zoolamoves games. After you've worked up an appetite, enjoy delicious items from the limited-time "Happy Happens" menu at Albert's and food stands throughout the Zoo. Laugh along with Dr. Zoolittle, then indulge in fun photo opportunities with African stilt walkers, pageantry puppets and our beloved San Diego Zoo costume characters like Sydney Koala, Churchill Polar Bear, and others. And, of course, meetings with our keepers and their animal friends add to the excitement.
There's so much to do, see, and hear - it's a good thing summer hours are longer! Join us for Nighttime Zoo at the San Diego Zoo, June 16 through September 2.
