Are you ready for the dazzling return of Zoo Lights? We can't wait to flip the switches and turn on our custom light displays that line our zoo trails in the darkness of the Alaskan winter. Visitors enjoy the animal-themed displays, animated displays set to music, canopies of light over some of the trails, the playground lit up and lots of fully lit trees around zoo grounds. We appreciate our returning sponsor, BP! We appreciate their community support.

Bring your camera, tripod, gear and sleds to pull the little ones around. Our Coffee Shop and Gift Shop stay open for business, so do some holiday shopping and follow it up with the purchase of a warm drink and snack. All Coffee Shop and Gift Shop purchases support operations of our non-profit zoo.

Annual Zoo Members receive a discount on Zoo Lights. Zoo members are $6/person, non-members are $8/person. Children ages 2 and under are free.
