Dallas’ Newest Holiday Lights Display is Sure To Be A Zoobilant Fun Time!

The Dallas Zoo is transformed on select evenings into a Winter Wonderland this Holiday Season, with over a million twinkling lights during Zoo Lights, one of the newest and most unique ways to experience Holiday Lights in Dallas!


In addition to enjoying the paths around Zoo North and the twinkling lights, visitors can experience unique animal encounters every 30 minutes!  Imagine meeting a penguin face to face!

Straight from the North Pole, Santa will even be there to say hello to everyone!

There is live music performed each night at Zoo North beneath the lights!

Elves at the Lacerte Family Children’s Zoo have fun crafts and activities for kids!

Your entire family can climb in Santa’s Sleigh for a special photo op!

Know Before You Go

Your Ticket to Dallas Zoo Lights can be used ALL DAY at the Dallas Zoo, then STAY to experience Zoo Lights after dark!  From 4pm, when the zoo closes, to 5PM, when the lights come on, you can dine in the Zoo Restaurant.  You can also get your hand stamped to leave the Zoo and go grab a bite to eat elsewhere, but why fight the traffic?!

Strollers are permitted in Zoo Lights!

Dallas Zoo Members are FREE, and can purchase discounted tickets for other guest.
