Lincoln Park Zoolights

The Lincoln Park Zoo will once again transform into a winter wonderland for the annual Zoolights celebration. The event will be held on November 24–26; December 1–3, 8–23, 26–31; and January 1–7, 2018.

This free family-friendly event will illuminate the sky with more than two million dazzling lights shaped as animals and seasonal ornaments. Visitors will be treated to free holiday crafts and activities, musical light shows, delicious snacks and drinks, live ice carving presentations, and other fun family-friendly activities. Of course, no visit will be complete without seeing the zoo’s primary residents…the adorable and cuddly creatures of the Lincoln Park Zoo!
