Don’t miss a visit to the 25th Anniversary of the Phoenix ZooLights this holiday season when the Phoenix Zoo puts on a spectacular light display throughout the zoo from November 23 through January 8, 2016. The Phoenix Zoolights is one of the largest holiday light displays in the country. You will be enchanted by the almost four million lights as you stroll throughout the zoo. It takes 4 people almost 14 weeks to install the display. There are lights shimmering in the trees, light displays all through the park, and the music in motion shows along the lake.  It is breathtaking to see all the lights reflecting off the water!


The Phoenix Zoo opened in 1962 and is the largest privately owned, non-profit zoo in the United States. Located in Phoenix, Arizona, the zoo was founded by Robert Maytag, a member of the Maytag family, and operates on 125 acres of land in the Papago Park area of Phoenix.  Zoolights is the zoo’s largest fundraiser of the year, with proceeds going to care for the 1400 animals who call the Phoenix zoo their home.


The lights come on at 5:30 pm and stay on until 10:30 pm. ZooLights creative displays include butterflies, lion cubs, peacocks, hummingbirds and flowers, stingrays and a tiger, with 12 – 30 new displays added each year to keep the experience fresh and updated for visitors. Viewers of all ages will find the vast array of breathtaking displays completely engaging. Stroll the grounds and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or apple cider.  Listen to the squeals of excitement as children see the lights changing colors and light shaped animals come to life. Check out the Zoo website for ticket prices which vary based on anticipated peak attendance nights.  Grab your hats and gloves and stroll through the Phoenix Zoo lights. Make this a family holiday tradition.

There are many East Valley Holiday Events to see around the Phoenix.


The park is fully accessible to everyone.  Wheelchairs and strollers alike move easily along the paths of the zoo making the entire park and all the lights accessible to everyone!

Shirley Coomer - Phoenix Zoo Lights is spectacular!!! I really can't decide which one of the three photos you posted I like the most! They are all so beautiful and I'm sure the zoo is even more incredible when you wonder through it all lit up! I'll bet it would make a great aerial view from a drone or plane too!

I really enjoyed seeing your photos and reading all about it!!!
