Festive lights transform Fresno Chaffee Zoo into a winter wonderland during Zoo Lights, a holiday celebration with sparkling displays and live music performances. Patrons can stroll the illuminated grounds and drink in the breathtaking exhibits while gargling “The Little Drummer Boy” with free hot cocoa. Each evening, local groups take the stage and showcase homegrown talents. After munching a cookie, visitors can create a holiday craft or snap their own photos with Santa. For $2 each, guests can don a pair of Holospex glasses, which sport holographic lenses that create a kaleidoscopic pattern around every bright light and tiger-striped candy cane.

Regular zoo admission is not included. Admission is free for children younger than 2. Adult tickets are required for visitors aged 12 and older.

Customer Reviews

Very Nice! It was a great addition to our Holiday Activities!!!
Pam M. · January 19, 2012
Fresno has one of the nicest Zoo's in the United States. I took a group of 30 friends and family to Zoo Lights for a Christmas party and we all had the time of our lives! Fantastic Lighting. The staff at the Fresno Zoo are also very friendly and helpful. The Zoo has many great events throughout the year like Safari Night. I booked a table for ten at last years Safari Night and all of my guest's enjoyed a great night of food and dancing to a fantastic live band.
