Enjoy luminous holiday light displays and seasonal activities throughout Lincoln Park Zoo


Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo isn’t just for the spring and summer. Come the holiday season, it transforms into a winter wonderland for its annual ZooLights presented by ComEd and Charter One—and it’s going on right now!


One of Chicago’s favorite annual holiday events, this winter celebration illuminates the zoo grounds with two million lights and seasonal activities and treats:

  • Photos with Santa until December 23rd
  • Free holiday crafts
  • Animal encounters
  • Warm spiced wine and frosty lagers
  • Delicious dinner and snacks
  • Holiday gift shopping
  • Live ice carving every night
  • Carousel and train rides
  • Musical light show

The first 1,000 people to arrive each night will receive a free pair of 3D glasses for an extra magical experience.


It’s fun. It’s free. It’s family friendly! What’s not to love about ZooLights? Bring the whole family tonight!
