The Alaska Zoo may be closed on Thanksgiving Day, but have no fear - our lights will come back on November 23rd for regular business. But true fun will begin when we turn on our Zoo Lights displays at 5pm!

Join us to kick off the Zoo Lights season and light up your Black Friday from 5-8pm on November 23rd. Check out our season schedule and rates. Tickets may be purchased online (starting in November) or at the zoo gate during Zoo Lights hours.
