Usher in 2020 at the Lincoln Park Zoo's special Zoo Year's Eve event! This adults-only (21 and up) New Year's Eve Party is hosted in the glow of Lincoln Park’s Zoolights display and features elements such as a cash bar, DJ, games, and giveaways. Most animal exhibits will be open to enjoy while sipping on a drink, and while not all animal buildings will be open, those that are will provide a warm place to rest. Take a picture at one of the many attractions with family or friends and enter to win the photo contest by posting on Facebook or Instagram with a #ZooYearsEve — winners will be contacted after the event. Make Zoo Year’s Eve your new holiday tradition, and feel good knowing that a large portion of the proceeds go towards the park and keeping it open free to the public!
Zoo Year's Eve is scheduled for 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. on December 31. Tickets are available for an early-bird discount, and it’s highly encouraged to buy them in advance online than at the event as tickets are limited. Paid parking is available for all guests.
