Sunday, December 31, 2024 | 10 a.m. - Noon

Noon Year’s Eve is a kid-friendly celebration that allows youngsters to experience all the fun of welcoming a new year while keeping bedtime in mind – including a dance party, noisemakers, sparkling juice “toast,” countdown and ball drop at noon.

The festivities begin at 10 a.m. with a dance party and fun photo ops in the zoo’s banquet room. The first 1,000 guests will receive complimentary party hats and horns thanks to a partnership with Tops Markets.

At 11:45 a.m., revelers will receive their free drinks and head to the zoo courtyard for the noon ball drop countdown. Guests are free to explore the zoo after the party.

This special event is free to zoo members and with zoo admission.
