Join us for Christmas for the Animals, one of the Alaska Zoo's longest running events and an annual zoo member tradition. Christmas for the Animals will be held from 3-6pm on Sunday, December 9th along our zoo trails.
ANNUAL ZOO MEMBERS RECEIVE FREE ENTRY FOR THIS EVENT AND ZOO LIGHTS ON THIS EVENING, DECEMBER 9TH. 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 (see ornament graphic below) 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!
