Today at the Zoo

There is always fun to be had at Nashville Zoo.

Besides roaming our trails, grabbing a bite to eat, embarking on a guided tourtaking a spin on the carousel, feeding the lorikeets, and petting the goats - we have a variety of keeper talks and animal feedings scheduled weekly. 

Here you will find our daily schedule of activities. Scheduled events and activities are subject to change, so please be sure to check the schedules prior to your visit.
