Participants must be 21+ to attend and online preregistration is required. Your admission includes one complimentary drink (either a margarita, wine, or beer) plus savory appetizers.

Zoo Nights – July 11 and August 15
What do animals do when the sun begins to set – come find out at Roger Williams Park Zoo’s Zoo Nights, July 11 and August 15 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm. Adults (21+) have the Zoo to themselves without worrying about the kids. Food concessions are open so guests may purchase any one of the Zoo’s meals, enjoy a drink at any of the bars throughout the Zoo, and delight in a visit with the animals. Then dance to the music, get silly in Hasbro’s Our Big Backyard with corn hole, giant Jenga and other games, run in and out of the CVS Tree House, and cool down in the Drip Drop Water Garden. Visitors may enjoy the opportunity to get up close to interesting creatures in the Green House, ride a camel, and feel the exhilaration of the Soaring Eagle Zip Ride in Explore & Soar. But wait there’s more … every thirty minutes listen for exciting raffle prizes including the tickets for a giraffe feed, the Soaring Eagle Zip Ride, or Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular coming in October. The grand prize – two tickets to the Zoo’s popular event Brew at the Zoo on August 24!
Tickets are $25 in advance, and $30 the day of the event. The admission ticket includes one complimentary beer, wine or soft drink from any of the bars located throughout the Zoo. All guests must show a valid ID before entering Zoo grounds.
Zoo Nights are open rain or shine. In the case of light to moderate rain, the events will be open. There will be no refunds or rescheduling.
Roger Williams Park Zoo management will close the event if there is a threat of heavy rain and high winds. If Zoo Night is canceled on July 11, the event will take place instead on July 25. If canceled on August 15 the event will be re-scheduled for September 12.
