Tuesday, December 31

11 A.m. – 1 P.m.

Let the countdown to 2020 begin! Bring the entire family to the Toledo Zoo on New Year’s Eve to ring in the New Year a little early… at noon!

Let’s be honest; midnight is just too late for the younger party-hat wearers. To provide the same fun festivities during day-light hours for our pint-sized guests, the Zoo will celebrate Noon Year’s Eve. This family-friendly event, focusing on making 2020 a greener year, will take place Tuesday, December 31 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Celebrate the stroke of noon with the rising of our recycling ball, a cascade of biodegradable confetti, apple juice toast and a chorus of ‘Auld Lang Syne.’

Enjoy making conservation reZOOlutions, craft time, an ice carving demonstration, animal feeds / enrichment, as well as the Ice Slide in the Winter Village sponsored by Kroger.

This is the perfect way for the whole family to send out 2019 with a bang!

Don’t miss your favorite animals enjoying their enrichment treats made possible through generous donations to the Giving Tree.
