We recommend arriving between 5:30 - 5:45 p.m. to check out the schedule and have time to fully enjoy the event. 

    Are guests allowed?

    Yes, if you have a guest option on your card [indicated by GUEST on the back of the card] you may feel free to use it. This is a great way to show others how wonderful your Zoo membership is.

    What about food?

    The ZooFari Cafe will remain open until 7:30 p.m., serving a selection of menu items. You may also choose to eat before arriving or bring a snack to enjoy as you walk.


    May we attend more than one Member Night?

    Absolutely.


    What if it rains?

    In the event that severe weather causes Member Night to be cancelled, every attempt will be made to post this on the membership line (615-833-1534 ext. 125) and Zoo's website and Facebook page by 4 p.m. The event is typically "called" if heavy rain or lightning occur during the event.
