Stay after dark and help us celebrate summer during Nighttime Zoo, brought to you by your San Diego County Toyota Dealers. Come "rock and roar" every day this summer with live music, a variety of surprise encounters and the opening of the Zoo's newest experience, Conrad Prebys Africa Rocks.
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 headlines an 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 after you've worked up an appetite, enjoy items from the limited-time "Happy Happens" menu at Albert's. 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 our keepers and their animal friends add to the chorus of excitement.
There's so much to do, see, and hear at Nighttime Zoo - it's a good thing summer hours are longer!
