This June, guests can add some spice to their visit during the zoo’s ¡Viva la Fiesta! celebration. The fun-filled six-day event, which is geared for guests of all ages and backgrounds, will take place on Saturdays and Sundays, June 1-2, 8-9, and 15-16, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Each weekend, the zoo’s West Mall will be the exclusive venue to enjoy festivities that will feature authentic food; local and international bands and dancers; Hispanic artists and artisans, who will display and sell their eclectic works; and animal Zoo Chats highlighting critters from Mexico and Central and South America.
Concerts are free with regular zoo admission. However, guests who want a guaranteed upfront seat can purchase reserved lawn tickets in a private sectioned-off area for $5
