The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is open every day except Christmas Day . We are open 9a to 5p during the spring, fall and winter. PNC Festival of Lights is open 5p - 9p Sundays - Thursdays and 5p - 10p Fridays and Saturdays starting November 23, 2013. (Closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day)
Because the park remains open during inclement weather, the Zoo offers no refunds or rainchecks. Because of the varying needs of the animals, some buildings or exhibits may close early. Check the Rides Page for current operating hours for the Train, Carousel and 4D Theater, as these change seasonally.
