Southwick’s Zoo will be open until 8:00pm (rain or shine) on Thursdays during August! Galliford’s Restaurant & Tavern’s weekly Sunset Serenade event will be taking place 7:00pm-10:00pm, so visitors will be able to explore the zoo after-hours and enjoy live music provided by Jeffrey Thomas and the Ultimate Band.
Admission AFTER 5:30pm on Thursdays during August will be $15/adult and $10/child (ages 3-12). Members of EARTH Limited will be free (be sure to bring your member card). Please note that the zoo’s main entrance closes at 5:00pm. Admission for the extended hours will be available to purchase starting at 5:30pm at the hostess stand in Galliford’s.
*Extended Hours admission will not be available online. Coupons, discounts, etc. cannot be applied to extended hours admission.
Plan on visiting during the zoo’s normal hours of operation and want to stick around? Those who visit the zoo during our normal hours on a Thursday and wish to stay after 5:00pm do not need to exit the zoo. All you need to do is visit the hostess stand on Galliford’s lower outdoor patio (located directly across from the Zip Line deck) at 5:30pm to receive your wristband!
Rides (excluding the Zip Line), gift shops, and food stands will not be open after 5:00pm. The petting zoo and Soaring Eagle Zip Line will be open, weather permitting.
Note: Extended Thursday hours will end after Thursday, August 30th.
