Posted by Steve Sullivan, Associate Director of Membership


Join us for Zoofari 2014!


Tuesday, September 9, 2014
6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Enter through West Entrance only. 
Have your membership card or temporary pass ready so you can join right in the fun!

Join us for our biggest annual member appreciation night yet! All of zoo grounds will be open this year as we say THANK YOU for being a member.

Free festivities will include:

- Carousel rides
- Animal Encounters
- Live music
- Mascot photo opportunities
- Docent talks
- Face painting
- Bouncy houses
- and more!

PLUS, receive 10% off any ZooStore purchase during event hours. 

Want to enter quickly and get started having fun right away?
Have your membership cards ready when you arrive. If you recently renewed your membership and haven't picked up your new cards yet, print out your temporary pass or confirmation email (or show us on your phone!) and use that to enter. You can pick up your cards at another time when the lines are shorter. 

What will I be able to see?
Zoofari guests will be able to wander all of zoo grounds. However, indoor buildings will not be open, and animals may have access to their indoor enclosures and may or may not be on view during the event. 

Food and beverages
Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the Rain Forest Pavilion.

Who can attend?
Zoofari and its activities are open to current zoo members and their guests, up to two guests per membership. If your membership includes a flexible guest, they are also welcome. Please present your membership card when entering the zoo. 

Do I have to pay for guests? 
If your guests are here only for Zoofari and you arrive at 6:00 p.m. or later, your guests (up to two per membership) are free. If you arrive at the zoo before 6:00 p.m. and want to visit the zoo first, guests will have to pay regular admission to the zoo. But don't forget, members get two half-priced guests per named adult per membership!

Parking will be free for members after 5:30 p.m. Entrance is at the West Gate only, but members may exit through the South Entrance.
