The Zoo will definitely be the “hot” spring break destination this year with an all-new event sure to brighten your spirits. Join us for 12 days of xZOOberance, our new spring festival. It’s three weeks of music, dance, art and nature, just the combination you need to shake off the winter and dive into everything spring has to offer.

The festival features live entertainment at two different stage locations, a cheer garden offering beer, pretzels, treats and kid-friendly refreshments, and a whimsical garden of remarkable topiaries fit for a Zoo. Natural décor depicting animals like elephants, giraffes, bears, butterflies and dolphins will wow you. Fun times await your kiddos including large outdoor musical instruments, animal matching games and creative crafts like a fun springtime pinwheel to catch the season’s breeze.
