Thanks to a generous grant funded by the Utah Legislature through the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, this year’s ZooLights will be FREE to the public! However, we’ve officially sold out of ZooLights tickets for the season! But don’t despair – keep checking back! We will be paying very close attention to attendance at ZooLights. If we notice that a lot of people reserve tickets but are not attending, we will be able to open more slots. We did leave some wiggle room. So please be patient and keep checking back! Please do not wait in the queue for ZooLights tickets as none are currently available.
|Sunday – Thursday||5:30 to 9 pm|
|Friday – Saturday||5:30 to 9 pm|
|New Years Eve||5:30 to 9 pm|
|New Years Day||Closed|
