We invite you to a unique Zoo event, Silent Night.

Our busy lives are often filled with schedules, responsibilities and noise. Come prepared for a peacefully quiet evening away from the pressures of the city below.

  • Connect with our animals peacefully and quietly, enjoying the natural beauty of the Zoo.
  • Turn off your phones, quiet your voices and tap into your own mindfulness.
  • Embrace only the sounds of our animals and surrounding nature.


– This event focuses on quiet and mindfulness and may not appeal to everyone.
– Plan for a silent evening at the Zoo with no phones, conversations or disruptions.
– Come prepared with comfortable shoes and a warmer layer.
– Our silent night will take place, rain or shine. No refunds or transfers for inclement weather.
– Sound-friendly areas will be available for those who need to make phone calls or have conversations. Please visit Safari Lodge, Lodge at Moose Lake and Safari Cabin.
