Zoo Lights Presented by Chase
November 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - January 2, 2022 @ 8:00 pm
Zoo Lights, presented by Chase, will return to the Maryland Zoo to brighten up the town with colorful evenings of holiday light displays! From Friday, November 19th through Sunday, January 2nd, this seven-week event will bring to Baltimore twinkling lights and holiday flare in the shape of many of your favorite zoo animals. More than 80 light displays with 150,000 environmentally-friendly LED lights will transform the Zoo into a sparkling winter wonderland!
Zoo Lights is a seasonal spectacle after-hours event that will run five nights a week, Wednesday-Sunday, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, guests will be on foot walking along a beautifully lit path past dazzling displays including some favorite animals reimagined as light sculptures beginning at the Main Gate, heading down Buffalo Yard Road into Zoo Central and the Farmyard for carousel rides, hot cocoa and maybe even a glimpse of Santa! On Wednesdays and Thursdays, guests can experience Zoo Lights from the comfort of their vehicles beginning at Eagle Gate and proceeding down Buffalo Yard Road; this option is ideal for those who would prefer to stay socially separated or aren’t comfortable walking long distances.
Tickets are $33 per vehicle for the drive-thru experience and $28 per person for the walk-thru experience; advanced purchase is required. Members receive a $5 discount on each ticket purchased. Zoo Lights will be closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the event may be modified due to inclement weather.
