Reid Park Zoo’s Summer Safari Nights, presented by Tucson Medical Center, are back and by request, we’ve added 4 more nights of adventure to the series! Enjoy the Zoo each Friday during cooler evening temperatures with the added benefits of live music, family-friendly animal features, special dining options and gift shop discounts. Each night will feature facepainting, glitter tattoos, enrichment making stations, artifact stations, carousel, camel rides and animal encounters. (note that some of these activities are an additional fee)

Bring a blanket and purchase your dinner or snacks (or even a cold beer or glass of wine), then relax and enjoy a picnic concert. Wander through the Zoo for keeper chats, animal encounters, sponsor booths, and wildlife activities*. The bands and animal themes will change each week, so be sure to mark your calendar for every Friday, May 19 -August 4!
