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.

Feed your “roaring” appetite by purchasing delicious food from local food trucks and sweet tents such as Gouda Girls, Jen’s Sweet Treats, Meat on the Street, The Rolling Cones, Roll MKE and Streetza Pizza. Help support the Sponsor an Animal program by purchasing nuts and candies from The Nutman.

There are plenty of activities and entertainment to burn off calories. Kids can rock it out with UB 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. Then check out the entertainment in the Peck Welcome Center sponsored by KinderCare Learning Centers, including Mad Science demonstrations, Karate America demonstrations, animal-themed crafts and temporary tattoos. Enjoy Main Street Song and Dance Troupe in the U.S. Bank Gathering Place.

Special offer: Visit any WaterStone Bank between June 1 and July 1, 2018, 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. Milwaukee County Zoo parking fee is reduced to $11 from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Zoo Pass Plus cardholders do not pay parking.) Please have your Zoo Pass card and photo ID ready for the gate attendants. Please note that the West Entrance will not be open during the event. The Penzeys Spices Carousel and the North Shore Bank Safari Train will run until dusk (weather permitting) at regular prices.
