OUTDOORS: Masks are strongly encouraged when on the concert meadow.
INDOORS: Masks are required for all (ages 5+) in indoor spaces including restrooms.


Before You Arrive

After purchasing your pod (tickets) and prior to your show date, we will email you with detailed information to help you prepare for your upcoming trip to The Woodland Park Zoo.

Tickets must be purchased as a pod—not as individual tickets. Pods are available as two-person, four-person, six-person or ten-person. Pods are safely spaced between each other with foot paths between pods to maintain social distancing. Upon purchasing your pod, you will receive a confirmation email and your tickets. Pods/tickets will be allocated based on reserved seating. When you receive your tickets, you will be able to download and email the individual tickets to the people coming with you. We encourage you to select your “pod mates” carefully as you’ll be in close contact with them during the evening and we encourage you to travel together or caravan.

All ticket holders will have scheduled arrival times. We ask that you please arrive at your scheduled time with all members of your party.

When You Arrive

Upon arrival, please have your electronic or printed ticket ready for everyone so they can be scanned.

Please bring your lawn/outdoor chairs (26” and under)—seating is not provided.

All walking paths have ample space to allow for social distancing. Each row will be clearly labeled along the footpath and each pod will be clearly labeled with the info on your tickets. Our staff will be along the way to help you find your pod.

Enter through the North Gate. For safe entry for our Zoo visitors and ZooTunes ticket purchasers, concert entry has been temporarily re-located to the (old) North gate entry.

No outside Food & Beverage will be allowed at any ZooTunes concerts this year. Sealed water bottles and empty refillable water bottles (non-glass) are acceptable.

Only clear bags that are 16” x 16” x 5” or smaller are allowed in the venue provided that they do not contain items on our prohibited items list. Small clutch-style purses/handbags no larger than 6” x 9” are the sole exception.

Once Inside Your Pod

Welcome! Your pod is your space for the evening. It’s time to watch some great local music!

When The Show Is Over

Please note that once the show is over each section will be directed by our security and staff to exit one at a time. We will be making announcements from the stage to help with your departure. Please stay in your pod until your section is asked to leave. Make sure to wear your masks when leaving and take all of your belongings with you. Please drive home safely and we can’t wait to see you again!

Guests may also pay on-site by visiting or calling (888) 515-7275. Electronic payment is highly recommended.

For visitors who are unable to download the app, you can pay at the West gate entrance. Please make note of your license plate number to ensure your car is recorded as “paid.”
