The Zoo is closed Christmas during the day and for Zoo Lights (Monday, December 25)
Zoo Lights will span through 60 acres of Denver Zoo's campus, with nightly entertainment, animal encounters, Santa meet-and-greets and, of course, illuminated animal sculptures that swing through trees, jump across lawns hide in bushes and appear in places where they’re least expected. Running December 1 until December 31, is one of Denver’s most anticipated events, which is a great opportunity for folks of all ages to enjoy the holidays or kick off the New Year with family, friends and colleagues.
*Daytime admission (including membership) does not include Zoo Lights.
Here to see more than just lights? A few animals may be able to be seen in their outdoor habitat, but don’t miss the following buildings with indoor viewing:
*Please note: The animals in Bird World, Emerald Forest, Great Apes, & Felines I & II go to sleep early and will not be available to view.
