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!

Cecil Jackson and The Dry Ridge Band

When he’s not working with elephants, Cincinnati Zoo’s Cecil Jackson spends his time playing bluegrass music with his band.  He’s good enough to quit his day job but loves the Zoo too much to do that!


Comet Bluegrass All-Stars

The Comet Bluegrass All-Stars were assembled in 1996 and became the house band at the Northside neighborhood bar The Comet. The band soon gained popularity beyond the lounge at the Comet and has performed at the opening ceremonies of the World Choir Games as guests of the world renowned Cincinnati Pops Orchestra; opened for bands such as Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs, and Sam Bush; and has won numerous music awards.

Young Heirlooms

Storytelling through song is an American tradition. Acclaimed Cincinnati songsmiths Young Heirlooms take you on a nostalgic journey with their sentimental, heartfelt original tunes. Music and lyrics composed by Kelly Fine and Chris Robinson are based on family history, personal experience, and adventures on the run.

Anticipate the timelessness of bygone musical eras and dynamic lyrical themes. The antique instrumentation comes with a contemporary kick. This six piece band has the ability to resonate with a wide scope of audiences, giving them a do-not-miss reputation throughout the Midwest.

Sounds Like: Nickel Creek, Neil Young, Ryan Adams, and The Lone Bellow

The Tillers

The Tillers have been thumping their own distinctive sound of string band style folk music for a decade, riding it all over the country and across the sea. Four studio albums and one live record have won them praise as modern folk storytellers of the national soundscape.
