Star Wars Day

Star Wars Day*

Saturday, May 2, 2020
Zoo open 11 am to 4 pm
Included with membership and general admission.

Meet your favorite characters without making a trip to a galaxy far, far away. Visitors are encouraged to bring their cameras to Star Wars Day and pose for free photos with costumed characters from 11 am to 4 pm. Visitors will learn how animal adaptations and behaviors in our galaxy relate to the creatures from the Star Wars universe through wildlife stage shows, crafts and other activities. Visitors will also be able to enjoy a ride on the Conservation Carousel to Star Wars music, themed chalk art with an activity station for guests to join in the fun, a Lego building station, face painting and more. The animals will join in on the fun as they receive special Star Wars-themed enrichment items throughout the day.


Due to animal safety, you may be asked to remove full head costume pieces in certain areas of the zoo. Lightsabers are allowed, but cannot be used over fences or animal barriers. Any costume blasters or guns are NOT allowed unless you are with the pre-approved groups of costumed characters and have had your prop inspected and tagged before entering the zoo.

*Proceeds from Star Wars Day will benefit animal care and the general maintenance of the zoo.
*Tickets are non-refundable. Rain or shine.
*Zoo opens late at 11 am.
