New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
Just a friendly reminder that there is no Zoo Boo on October 31. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
The following areas will be closing early for private events:
Jaguars – Saturday, November 1 – 5:30 p.m.
This summer the Houston Zoo is staying open late on Fridays, until 8:30 p.m., so you can enjoy the animals in the cooler evening weather. It’s TXU Energy Presents Cool Nights at the Houston Zoo!
On Friday, July 18 join us for a WILD twist on a backyard summer hangout! Starting at 5 p.m. bring your buddies, or bring a date, and enjoy a live performance by local Houston artist Yelba and play backyard games like giant Jenga and Connect Four. Also included with your Zoo admission is one free drink* from St. Arnolds Brewery! Guests can also experience special animal presentations with the Zoo’s lions and elephants. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind party with your favorite animals!
After enjoying Cool Nights, head across the street to Miller Outdoor Theatre for the Theater Under the Stars production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, a sassy, spirited musical about a real-life brothel in Texas!
*Must be 21 or older. Additional beer available for purchase.
