WHAT HAPPENS AT THE ZOO AFTER THE GATES CLOSE?
DATE: June 16, 2018!
TIME: 5 P.M. to 11 P.M.
Join us this June 16th, for our 20th Annual ZooFest and find out what happens at the zoo after the gates close! During ZooFest you can interact close up with roving zoo staff holding animals, pose for photos, create enrichment’s for our residents, watch painting demonstrations by Lucy, the Asian elephant, partake in raffles and bid on unique live and silent auction items. There will be restaurant and wine sampling for adults, a live and silent auction, and a Kids Zone that will have crafts, games and unique opportunities for kids to get up close and personal with our fuzzy, feathered, and scaly friends! There are few opportunities in Edmonton where adults can have a first class evening and share that with their children, and this is one of the best!
Not only is it fun for the whole family but the entire event is in support of our fundraising efforts help build our zoo!

On September 12th our friends from the Edmonton Oilers visited the Edmonton Valley Zoo and participated in an exciting photo-shoot with the Zoo’s resident animals to create the first ever Oilers/Zoo Calendar – appropriately named “Orange, Blue and the Zoo”. This calendar was only made possible with support from our new friends at the Edmonton Oilers, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation, and the incredible staff at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. We wish to personally thank Milan & Brittany Lucic for joining us as Valley Zoo Ambassadors and leading this exciting fundraiser.
HELP BUILD OUR ZOO!
It is through today’s zoos that future generations will come to a greater understanding of the human impact on the natural world and be motivated to preserve it and reverse the damage already done. Every donation, big or small, helps us revitalize our beloved Edmonton Valley Zoo! Thank you for caring for the animals, our children's future and the planet!
