Zoo After Hours

What happens after the Zoo closes each day? Join us for this inaugural series and find out for yourself as you explore the Zoo After Hours!

Twice each month, from June – August, the Zoo is extending its hours and inviting you to connect with our natural wonder in a unique way.

Zoo After Hours on select Fridays are for adults 18+; Zoo After Hours on select Saturdays are for all, kids and adults alike!

Grab your friends, family, and neighbors to explore indoor and outdoor trails – all while enjoying food, drinks, music, and of course majestic animals from around the world. Best of all, when you attend one of our special Zoo After Hours events, you are actively contributing toward helping save wildlife throughout Minnesota and beyond!
