Not only will you be delighted by tons of shining lights, but you will also be giving back to wildlife conservation.

For six, twinkling weeks the Calgary Zoo will transform itself into a wonderful holiday display for the 25th time. Talk about tradition!

Guests will be able to take part into both classic and new activities, like outdoor skating, the Nutcracker, and an amazing polar wonderland with candies and snow, to say the least. The zoo will be filled with fun things to try out, especially the delicious hot meals and beverages made available by the many caf├ęs along the way, with some adult drinks as well in a few locations.

Pose inside Santa’s Cabin or on a wintery sleigh; you’ll be able to find plenty of photo ops to make the night even more memorable.

To make it a more accessible event, ZOOLIGHTS will hand out a Sensory Bag to guests with sensory sensitivity, so that everyone can enjoy the event.

Magic is sure to spark during this event!

Calgary Zoo day admissions are different from tickets for ZOOLIGHTS, which is why the entire zoo closes temporarily at 4:30 p.m. and then reopens at 5:00 p.m.. This lets staff prepare for getting out the best decorations to suit the spirit.

Important to note: Closed November 28, November 30, December 3 and December 25.

Get tickets here.
