See the Lights. Feel the Magic. Continue the Tradition.
Celebrate the holiday season with family and friends during Brookfield Zoo’s 35th annual Holiday Magic, presented by ComEd and Meijer. At Chicagoland’s longest running lights festival, the zoo will be lit with more than one million twinkling LED lights as guests enjoy caroling to the animals, professional ice carving demonstrations, light shows, and special visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus (the latter through December 18). In addition, select animal habitats will remain open, as will zoo restaurants and gift shops. A full schedule of music and live entertainment, a magic show, costumed characters, a model railroad display, and more will add to the magical ambiance.
Date: Saturdays and Sundays, December 3-4, 10-11, 17-18, and Monday, December 26 – Saturday, December 31
Open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Festivities Begin at 4 p.m.
