🍺Brew At The Zoo 2024

Brew is one of our biggest FUNdraisers! The event will feature beer, wine and food from regional breweries and wineries. Plus, you'll receive full access to all exhibits within the zoo! This is a 21-and-over only event. Admission is $50 per person and will include beer and wine samples with a commemorative tasting glass. All proceeds go towards benefiting the animals of the Washington Park Zoo!


🦓Running Wild 5k Run

The Michigan City Zoological Society will host their annual Running Wild for the Zoo 5K Run/Walk event Sunday July 9, 2023 at Washington Park Zoo. The course is a 3.1-mile stretch that runs two miles on paved road beginning at the Zoo with the last mile taking place on the beach. The sand-heavy path is infamous for being one of the more difficult 5k runs in the area amongst various running groups.


See You In 2024!

🦇Boo At The Zoo

Next Event: TBD

Young goblins, ghosts, princesses and zooperheros will experience child-friendly trick or treating from local business sponsored booths while having wild animal encounters along the decorated zoo paths.

Due to the large crowds that traditionally attend Boo at the Zoo, we will offer two sessions to avoid long lines and keep everyone safe. The Zoo staff is strongly recommending purchasing tickets in advance since there will be a cut-off of ticket sales once the maximum occupancy is reached.
