Session times: 10 a.m., Noon, & 2 p.m.
(Separate fee - online reservation required)


Santa is making a special stop at the Louisville Zoo and he’s bringing a bunch of his North Pole friends along too. Enjoy a visit and photo with Santa, plus meet Mrs. Claus and Frosty the Snowman. Includes yummy refreshments, a fun holiday craft, special animal encounter stations, storytelling, festive sing-alongs and more.

Be a part of Santa’s workshop where elves help families create a wonderful holiday craft. And of course, no visit would be complete without Mrs. Claus serving her famously delicious holiday treats and beverages (and hot chocolate or coffee too for the grown-ups.) A complementary photo with Santa will be provided to each child.

Then grab your special Santa Safari Passport and begin your journey through the Zoo’s heated buildings to experience one-on-one interaction with Zoo animals and Zoo educators. Bring your cameras!
