Sparkling, festive, and magical! For many Calgarians, the holiday season is not complete without a visit to ZOOLIGHTS, presented by Olympia Trust Company. Your Christmas glow starts at the Calgary Zoo and lights up the nights between November 22, 2019, and January 4, 2020.
The Calgary Zoo grounds transform into a magical winter wonderland, with over 2 millions lights. ZOOLIGHTS, presented by Olympia Trust Company, will wrap you in a warm hug, so you can enjoy that warm Christmas glow with your whole family, and will brighten your holidays with more family-friendly activities than ever before! This incredible glow-tastic event offers family fun adventures both indoors and out.
While you enjoy the amazing lights and interactive light displays, you’ll enjoy music, skating, Santa, warming fire pits, and many fun and engaging family activities, including the all-new Magical Wonderland, the Wishing Tree and Sensory Sundays. Play games on animal habitats that teach you about conservation all while having a sparkling good time. Knowing your visit contributes to animal conservation will brighten your Christmas even more.
Make magical memories while making the world a better place. Hold hands with your sweetheart while enjoying the exquisite light displays. Bring your family and friends to play, craft, get a picture with Santa (select days), and sip hot chocolate by the fire. Enjoy the special events throughout the season and love a wonderful time with your family. Supporting conservation has never been so easy! Everything you need to enjoy the evening is included with the price of admission—except hot cocoa and snacks.
