Kids' NightsSpend a warm summer evening at the Zoo during the Zoological Society’s members-only Kids’ Nights event. There is much to see and do! Family-friendly activities, live entertainment and delicious food await you – along with the Zoo’s animals.

Explore the world of insects and arachnids like never before! During the event, Zoo Pass members receive half-price admission to BUGS! Larger than Life, sponsored by Sendik’s Food Markets (Zoo Pass and photo ID needed for admission) from 5 to 8:30 p.m.

Feed your “roaring” appetite by purchasing delicious food from area restaurants and food trucks such as Eats & Treats, Gouda Girls, Kona Ice, Meat on the Street, Noodles & Company, Palermo’s® Pizza, Picnic Basket and Saz’s Catering. Help support the Sponsor an Animal program by purchasing nuts and candies from The Nutman.

There are plenty of entertainment and activities to burn off calories. Kids can rock it out with UB the Band, sponsored by Whole Foods Market (located on the Briggs & Stratton Zoo Terrace Stage). Do the cheetah cha-cha with DJ Tim Sledge on the Flamingo Patio stage, sponsored by Great Clips. Shake your tail with Lisa Edgar & RAZZMATAZZ at the Ralph Evinrude Landing Stage, sponsored by Lifeway Foods. Then check out the entertainment in the Peck Welcome Center, sponsored by KinderCare Learning Centers, including Mad Science, Karate America demonstrations, animal-themed crafts and temporary tattoos. In the U.S. Bank Gathering Place enjoy performances by Main Street Song and Dance Troupe. Scale a 25-foot Adventure Rock climbing wall near giraffes.

Special offer: Visit any WaterStone Bank between June 1 and July 2, 2016, show your Zoo Pass card and get one ticket good for a free ride on the Penzeys Spices Carousel during Kids’ Nights. Visit for branch locations.

The Zoo admission gates will close for the day at 4:15 p.m. and reopen for our event at 5 p.m. This event is only for Zoo Pass members and their minor children and/or grandchildren covered on the membership.
