Proceeds from this event support daily operations, education programs, and providing exceptional care for over 1,200 animals.

The safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff is a top priority as we finalize our plans, and as such, you may notice a few changes from previous events, and please note that the number of available tickets has been reduced. We are following guidance from health officials on modifications to ensure guest safety, food safety, and to promote social distancing. We are encouraging all guests to take personal safety precautions including following social distance guidelines, bringing a facial covering, and hand sanitizer as these may increase their comfort level while attending the event.

Must be 21 to attend. Proof of age is required at the gate. No exceptions.

*The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo reserves the right to modify or cancel the event due to weather or recommendation by government officials due to COVID-19. Your ticket purchase is considered a charitable donation and will not be refunded if the event must be cancelled. Whether you join us in person or online, your gift will connect kids with animals, strengthen families, and inspire people to care.
