Zoo Lights 2017

December 1 @ 5:30 pm - December 31 @ 9:00 pm

DECEMBER 1 – DECEMBER 31
5:30 to 9 p.m.
Denver Zoo will be closed Christmas day (December 25)

Zoo Lights will span through 60 acres of Denver Zoo’s campus, with nightly entertainment, animal encounters, Santa meet-and-greets and, of course, illuminated animal sculptures that swing through trees, jump across lawns hide in bushes and appear in places where they’re least expected. Running December 1 until December 31, is one of Denver’s most anticipated events, which is a great opportunity for folks of all ages to enjoy the holidays or kick off the New Year with family, friends and colleagues.
