Roaring Nights

New this year: Explore more of the zoo with an expanded route open from 6 to 8 p.m.

Full bars
are available for guests 21 and older. For all guests, themed attire is strongly encouraged.

Event Dates and Themes

  • Country Night (adults only, 18+) on July 21: Don’t miss your chance to boot-scoot through the Zoo on a beautiful summer evening featuring local favorites Country Thunder and Gold Rush Country. Don’t know how to scoot? Don’t worry! Dance demos are available.
  • Battle of the Decades – ‘80s vs. ‘90s (adults only, 18+) on September 15: Your two favorite decades go head-to-head for one very special evening featuring ‘80s legend DJ Richard Blade and the ‘90s-loving Boombox Heroes.. How, like, totally radical is that? Or is it all that and a bag of chips? You decide!
Roaring Nights, like all our nighttime events, supports the L.A. Zoo and its global conservation efforts. With our 50th Anniversary ZooLAbration, we want to thank visitors like you for joining us on this great half-century adventure and for helping us save animals from extinction. Together, we can continue to make a difference for wildlife and inspire new generations, for the next 50 years and beyond. Learn more at www.ZooLAbrate50.org.
