More About Christmas at the Indianapolis Zoo

Enjoy the warm glow of twinkling lights and the magical nighttime experience that is Christmas at the Zoo! Dating back to 1967, the Indianapolis Zoo was the first zoo in the nation to hold a holiday lights event. Now in its 50th year, Christmas at the Zoo is a beloved holiday tradition!

Stay warm sipping on hot beverages or enjoying one of the campfires! Several animals will also stay up late to enjoy cooler nights, including brown bears, tigers and more! Plus, stop by the indoor animal exhibits, including Oceans, Deserts and the Simon Skjodt International Orangutan Center. The Hilbert Conservatory in the White River Gardens will also be open early in the day from noon-5pm.

​Friday, November 23 through Sunday, December 30
12pm-9pm Sunday-Thursday and 12pm-10pm Friday & Saturday
(​Closed Christmas Eve and Day, New Year's Eve and Day)
