Zoo Weekend

Zoo Weekend

Apr 3rd 2021 - Apr 24th 20219am-6pm

The 2021 Zoo Weekend has new format - Zoo Weekend with a twist.  Zoo Weekend is going to be held over four Saturdays in April (April 3, 10, 17 and 24) in order to provide a safe and healthy environment for all our guests, and maintain compliance with CDC, ADPH and City of Montgomery Covid-19 safety guidelines.  


Each Saturday in April the Zoo will be magically transformed into a giant carnival with a different theme that will be full of fun, games, live entertainment, giant slides, animal presentations, performances from local choirs, dance teams and karate groups, and more. We will have lots of carnival style food such as corn dogs, funnel cakes, cotton candy, and freshly squeezed lemonade.  Concessions like hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken fingers will also be available at the Overlook Café.


The number of guests each Saturday will be limited to 4,000. In order to ensure that you have a spot, advance reservations are highly recommended for anyone attending Zoo Weekend(s), including zoo members. Go online to montgomeryzoo.com to reserve your spot. Tickets will be available for walk-ups as long as the 4,000 guest limit has not been met. Once the threshold of 4,000 zoo visitors in the park have been reached, there will be no additional admissions allowed to enter the park, including Montgomery Zoo Members. We strongly encourage everyone to go online to the Zoo’s website and reserve your spot for Zoo Weekend(s), every Saturday in April. 


Zoo Weekend is one of the Zoo’s largest fundraiser of the year. All proceeds from the event will help fund the construction of a new reptile facility featuring the critically endangered, Indian Gharial crocodile, Komodo dragon, King Cobra and Galapagos tortoise.
