Zoomagination: The Festival of Lanterns and Lights Member Preview Night

June 17 @ 6:30 pm - June 18 @ 10:30 pm

Get excited—Zoomagination: The Festival of Lanterns and Lights presented by Five Star Bank is back for another year and our Members get the first chance to see it before we open to the public! Join us on Saturday, June 17 or Sunday, June 18 for Member Preview Weekend to be the first to see our completely new exhibit of lanterns. 

Named the most popular WNY event of 2022, this is a must-see summer attraction. Packed with an all-new lineup of lanterns, it’s time to immerse yourself in the larger-than-life displays of beautiful florals, curious creatures from under the sea, and breathtaking landmarks from around the world. Watch nightly cultural performances at our newly built performance stage (showtimes are 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm, and 9:00 pm), indulge in Asian-inspired food, relax in our Beer Garden with a specialty drink, and shop for artisan made goods all night long! Zoo attractions you know and love like the train and carousel will also be open. The possibilities are endless at this fan-favorite event! 

When the sun goes down (and our animals are in bed for the night) the Zoo lights up with Zoomagination: The Festival of Lanterns and Lights. Member Preview nights are Saturday, June 17 and Sunday, June 18 from 6:30 pm- 10:30 pm. Last entry is at 9:45 pm. All Members must have a ticket for the specific date to enter. Limited number of tickets available. Get your tickets today!
