Zoo Lights 2017

Thursday, December 7, 2017 — Saturday, December 23, 2017
6:00 pm — 8:00 pm


Twinkling lights, hot chocolate and family – it’s the most wonderful time of the year at Zoo Lights, presented by Tucson Electric Power.

Thousands of twinkling lights, light displays and animal-themed light sculptures help make Zoo Lights a part of your Tucson holiday tradition. Enjoy falling snow, seeing Santa, listening to live music and carousel rides (for an additional fee).

Warm up with hot cocoa (with or without spirits!), a s’mores station and cinnamon rolls for a sweet holiday treat! Our regular Cafe fare will also be available for purchase.

Zoo Lights goes from December 7th through the 23rd with Encore Nights December 26th through the 30th. Santa will not be at the Encore Nights as he will have returned to the North Pole.

Animals will have access to heated night houses for this event, and will likely choose to be off exhibit.
