This December, Zoominescence, hosted by the Edmonton Valley Zoo and the Valley Zoo Development Society, will stage a spectacular exhibition of artistic light installations within the unique setting of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. The festival’s vision is to celebrate light, artistry, imagination and the essential strong spirit of community in the winter. Running every Friday, Saturday and Sunday plus every day for the last two weeks of December. Join us for an evening of light, animals, skating, hot chocolate and fun for the whole family!

Community Sponsor (Unlimited): $525 +

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience this magical vent to get them into the festive spirit. Although entrance to the festival is a nominal donation per person, unfortunately not everyone in our community is able to afford any extras outside of their necessities for their families. With the help of generous sponsors, we can help bring these families to the zoo to experience the wonder of our winter city and enjoy the festivities. Our goal is to share these tickets with other non-profit organizations, as well as with schools who are predominantly lower-income families. The following packages are available for sponsorship in multiples of 50 at the Children’s Ticket cost of $10.50 instead of $14.95. Ex:

• 50 tickets for $525 ($747 Value)
• 100 tickets for $1,050 ($1,495 Value)
• 200 tickets for $2,100 ($2,990 Value)
• 350 tickets for $3,675 ($5,232 Value)

Your generosity will provide you with the following:

  • Recognition of sponsorship for the entire festival on-site, on festival website and all festival correspondence
  • Your company name on the letter that accompanies the donated tickets to the recipient
  • If VZDS distributes your tickets to a charity- we will provide you 10 complimentary tickets to Zoominescence 



We have extended our community sponsor pricing to companies that wish to  buy a block of tickets for an allotted time slot for their staff or clients. In addition to the same pricing – you can choose to host all of your guests exclusively on any Wednesday or  Thursday evening; and have the Zoo to yourself. There is also an option to pre-purchase  tickets for any Friday, Saturday or Sunday slots of up to 200 people per half hour but  those will be at full price, and the public will be able to attend during the pre and  post time slot


In Kind Sponsorships Available

Printing, Advertising, Firewood, or Rentals – we appreciate all in kind sponsors!



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!
