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.

Discover the intricate biology, zoology and physiology of the world’s most spectacular creatures at the Milwaukee County Zoo’s summer exhibit – BODY WORLDS: ANIMAL INSIDE OUT, sponsored by Sendik’s Food Markets. Zoo Pass members receive half off admission from 3 to 8:30 p.m. (Have your Zoo Pass and photo ID handy).

Feed your “roaring” appetite by purchasing delicious food from area restaurants and food trucks such as BeBe’s Bistro, Cousins Subs, The Cupcake-A-Rhee, The Gouda Girls, Hard Wood Café, Jen's Sweet Treats, Kona Ice, Meat on the Street, The Rolling Cones, Roll MKE, Saz’s Catering and Streetza Pizza. 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 U B the Band on the Briggs & Stratton Zoo Terrace Stage, sponsored by eAchieve Academy. Do the cheetah cha-cha with DJ Tim Sledge on the Flamingo Patio stage, sponsored by Great Clips. Shake your tail with Reilly 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: Main Street Song & Dance Troupe, Karate America demonstrations, animal-themed crafts and temporary tattoos. In the U.S. Bank Gathering Place, enjoy demonstrations by Mad Science. Then test your rock climbing skills at the 25-foot Adventure Rock climbing wall.

Special offer: Visit any WaterStone Bank between June 1 and July 1, 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.
