Ring In the New Year at Zoo Year's Eve at Lincoln Park Zoo


09 December 2019

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.
