Holiday Happenings
Wild Encounters
Meet our reindeer herd, or take a nostalgic wagon ride pulled by graceful Clydesdale horses on Astor Court. Watch tamarins and tigers tear into edible holiday presents at the Monkey House and Tiger Mountain during daily enrichment sessions.
Ice Carving
Watch ice sculptors transform blocks of ice into glistening animal sculptures during weekend ice-carving demonstrations. Don't miss the first Salute to Wildlife Ice Carving Competition on December 27, as 15 experts compete to create a winning wildlife display.
Help us spread the holiday cheer and bring a gently used winter coat to the zoo to donate as part of New York Cares Coat Drive, or a new unwrapped toy as part of the Bronx Borough President's Annual Toy Drive. Visit for details.
