Nightlife & Party Events


Summer Saturday Nights at the Phoenix Zoo!

Prowl & Play, the Zoo’s summer nighttime event offers water play,

activities and up-close animal encounters.

The Phoenix Zoo’s summer evening event, Prowl & Play, will let guests experience the Zoo in a whole new light…or dark! This event offers unique and exciting activities which allow guests to explore, see and hear the Zoo differently than a daytime visit.

Admission is $6 for all Phoenix Zoo members, $8 for non-members, and children under two are free. New this year, the Phoenix Zoo is offering the Prowl & Play pass – all three nights for just $15. That’s a $3 - $9 savings!

Prowl & Play creeps into the Phoenix Zoo for three nights only. The event takes place from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on:

Saturday, June 8

Saturday, July 13

Saturday, August 10
