Join us for Christmas for the Animals, one of the Alaska Zoo's longest running events and an annual zoo member tradition. This event will be held from 3-6pm on Sunday, December 9th along our zoo trails.

THIS EVENT AND ZOO LIGHTS FOR THE EVENING ARE FREE TO ANNUAL ZOO MEMBERS. Buy or renew your annual membership online today.

Non-members pay general admission rates if they arrive from 3-5pm, then non-member Zoo Lights rates after 5pm ($9/person for ages 3 and over, age 2 and under free).

Large stockings will be hung by the exhibits with care, in hopes that zoo visitors soon will be there! Visitors bring food donations from our list of suggested items and stuff the animals' stockings between 3-6pm.

The event will feature holiday music, Zoo Lights, a bonfire, free popcorn, a bake sale, giving tree, animal enrichment and more!
