Omaha's Zoo Announces Return of Late Nights This Summer Starting May 27

Join Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium for a relaxed evening of wildlife, food trucks and drinks as it hosts the first Late Nights at the Zoo of the summer on Thursday, May 27, from 7 to 10:30 p.m. This series is for adults only, ages 21 and older, and will also be held on the following Thursdays: June 3 & 17, July 1, 8, 15 & 29, and August 5.

Each ticket to Late Nights at the Zoo includes one complimentary drink ticket, access to select Zoo exhibits after-hours, and the ability to purchase cuisine from local food trucks. Also this summer, the new Stingray Beach is available as an add-on experience for Late Nights at the Zoo guests and more seating will be available in the new Harper Event Center.

Additional drink tickets are available for purchase at multiple spots throughout the event area. All guests must be ages 21 and older and must bring a valid, state-issued ID to the event. No exceptions will be made for any reason.

Please note that Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is committed to taking the necessary precautions to protect the health and wellness of all staff, guests and animals. The Zoo has adopted the principals of a "healthy you, healthy Zoo." During Late Nights at the Zoo, face masks are encouraged. 

Each Late Nights’ capacity is limited to 4,000 total attendees and the last admission to the event is at 9:30 p.m. To guarantee admission, the Zoo recommends purchasing tickets in advance online. Advance ticket purchases offer a discounted admission price of $13 per person for Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium members and $23 per person for non-members. Admission tickets can also be purchased the day of the event at the Zoo main entrance for $18 for Zoo members and $28 for non-members.
