Celebrate long weekends at the wildest place in the city - the Wilder Institute / Calgary Zoo! 

So popular last year that we have brought it back !  We're keeping the zoo open late  over the Long weekends so you can enjoy your favourite animals and the beautiful zoo grounds a little longer. Whether you make it a date night or you bring the whole family, there's something for everyone to enjoy.  Visit Kitamba for dinner, grab a beer and enjoy a some acoustic musicians as you wander the zoo.  Don't forget, you'll be directly supporting the Wilder Institute / Calgary Zoo’s wildlife conservation initiatives through your admission so it's a win-win! 

To create some exciting new habitats and spaces in the Canadian Wilds, we are undergoing a massive construction project which will temporarily shift pathways and move some animals offsite until the construction is completed. Muskox, wood bison, woodland caribou, whooping crane and North American river otters are currently not viewable. We’re working hard to minimize impacts while continuing to provide the best possible experience for both our visitors and the animals we love and care for. Thank you for your understanding.
