Summer nights in Portland are magical - and even more so in the lush gardens of the zoo, surrounded by wildlife!

We're keeping the zoo open late on select Fridays this summer, and enhancing the already-spectacular experience with additional food carts, beer & wine sales, live music, keeper talks and educational fun for kids and adults alike. Members can take 20% off ticket prices - simply log in as a member first, then select your tickets. 

Tickets are $19-24 per person and are available now!
