Red, White, and Zoo

Join Zoo Boise and celebrate America’s birthday and our Aldabra tortoise Mr. Mac’s 100th birthday and Spider Monkey Elvis’s 60th birthday. There will be a zoo parade, entertainment, vendors, games, animal encounters, and opportunities to watch the zoo animals rip, tear, and chew through special toys and treats.

Admission for general (12-61) is $11, kids (3-11) are $8, seniors (62 & over) are $8, and children 2 and under are FREE. Pre-purchased tickets are not required. Annual members are always free (with pass and photo id) and will have a special entrance gate. Members do not need tickets but do need to check in at the gate. 

Red, White and Zoo is happening on July 2 from 9AM to 5PM, with the last entry at 4PM.

Tickets can be bought online or at the admission gate on the day of the event.
