In 2016/2017, ZOOLIGHTS presented by JSS Barristers came back with more holiday cheer, festive spirit, and family fun than ever. Calgary's favourite winter tradition ran from November 25, 2016 until January 8, and is now preparing for it's 2017/2018 season. 

Visitors looking for things to do during the holiday season experienced how 1.5+ million lights, 200 displays, crackling fire pits, and fun-filled activity zones (with many new additions!) transformed the Calgary Zoo into a magical winter wonderland. Most magical of all, the event brought friends and family together for a night of fun.

Admission to ZOOLIGHTS helped to support the Calgary Zoo’s conservation efforts to protect species at risk, here at home and around the world.


All your holiday traditions wrapped up in one event.
