Tunes & Blooms The Zoo will close to the public starting March 15. While there have been no known cases of exposure to COVID-19 at the Zoo, the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, guests, community and animals is our top priority. In response to the gathering restrictions ordered by Governor DeWine, the Cincinnati Zoo will be canceling or postponing any large events of 100+ people through April 30. This includes Tunes & Blooms. More info here. See a collection of Cincinnati’s finest and most respected music veterans playing together in the Zoo’s beautiful gardens, for FREE! Why tip-toe through the tulips when you can rock the garden? On Thursdays during Tunes & Blooms, admission is free after 5pm. Parking is $10. Music starts at 6pm. As a reminder, NO outside alcohol is permitted to be brought inside the Zoo. Beer will be available for purchase. Bags will be inspected at the turnstiles before entering the Zoo. Guests can bring in their own chairs or blankets, but no umbrellas. Enjoy the Zoo Blooms while you’re here!
