CUs night at Zoo Lights is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season on Sunday, Nov. 25! This special evening at the Denver Zoo from 5:30-9:30 p.m. gives CU guests exclusive entry to Zoo Lights before the event opens to the public.

Bring the family to delight in more than 150 brightly animated light sculptures decorating the zoos trees, lawns and bushes. There also will be live animal demonstrations, rides on the carousel and an appearance by CU Santa! As an escape from the cold weather, our warming stations will offer hot drinks and delicious snacks such as brownies, soft pretzels and popcorn.

The cost is $15 for adults and $10 for children ages 3-11. Children 2 and under are free.

Tickets purchased by Wednesday, Nov. 14 will be mailed to the home address a week prior to the event. Tickets purchased after Nov. 14 will be available for pick-up at the CU-Boulder will call located outside of the Denver Zoo entrance.
