Event Details:

Fathers come in all shapes, sizes and species. This Father’s Day bring your dad to meet our animal dads, including Batu, our white-cheeked gibbon, Kwisha, the gorilla, Boomer, the orangutan and Silvio, the mongoose lemur at your Toledo Zoo. 

Our Father’s Day celebration includes free admission for all dads accompanied by their child(ren) and fun, dad-friendly games throughout the Zoo’s Main Plaza. Be sure to give Dad the full Zoo tour: watch Baru the saltwater crocodile chow down in the Reptile House, touch sharks and rays in the Aquarium, follow your nose to learn about the distinct scent of maned wolves and listen to the unique vocalizations of the Tasmanian devils. 

An add-on (separate fee) Father's Day BBQ will take place in the Lodge at 11:30 a.m. and will feature hamburgers, hotdogs, grilled chicken breast, pasta salad, baked beans and more! Beer and wine will also be available for purchase. To make the event even more memorable, there will be a live animal encounter and appearances by Captain America and Wonder Woman! Prices are for advanced reservations only and include admission but not parking. Children under two are free. To make reservations, please click here, or call Group Sales at 419-385-5721 ext. 6001. 

Treat Dad to an adventure this Father’s Day at the Toledo Zoo!
