Enjoy an evening under the stars with live music, dancing, and a special photo opportunity with a Zoo animal!

Some of our favorite zoo events are seasonal and fun. Most zoos in California offer Boo Zoo events during Halloween season, and some even have Christmas events with "Santa" treats and gifts to the animals in the zoo.

There are more than 15 zoos in California, and most host fundraisers to support special animal causes. Check out a zoo near you or visit one of these California zoos:
