“We want everyone to enjoy the Zoo and be inspired with wildlife, and these special offers make entry even more affordable than it usually is,” said Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard.  “Our summer season is in full swing, so there are more animals outside, more entertainment options, and more opportunities to learn and have fun. Why not do more for less?!”

The Kids, Cultures, Critters, and Crafts Festival, presented by Learning Through Art, is much more than just a discounted entry day.  It’s a day-long event filled with sights, sounds, and wonders from around the globe.

Family fun entertainment will feature unforgettable cultural dances, international music, marionettes and puppets, children’s theater, storytelling, stilt walkers, jugglers, choirs, African drummers, crafts, and more! Select Wednesday, June 21, 2023, to purchase tickets to this event!

To take advantage of the Father’s Day deal, just let the Zoo’s turnstile attendants know that you’re a dad.  To save time, purchase tickets for others in your party in advance and start your Summer Adventure at the Cincinnati Zoo, presented by Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Honda Dealers, without waiting in line! You pay more than $10 less per ticket, on select days, when you purchase tickets online!

The Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Members enjoy early entry starting at 9 a.m.
