Special Announcement and Unveiling from Lincoln Park Zoo
Lincoln Park Zoo has been an integral part of Chicago for nearly 150 years. In that time we have set standards for animal care and led conservation efforts worldwide. Join us at this special event where we will unveil our new brand vision, the zoo’s new logo and tagline, and be among the first to participate in new ways to show how you can help Lincoln Park Zoo make its mark for the next 150 years.
No advance registration required; attendees will receive a special gift.
Saturday, May 13, 8-10 a.m.
Rise like they do on the farm with a special Members-Only Morning! The zoo will open early just for members, giving you a chance to wake up with the Farm-in-the-Zoo and see its animals in a new light. Get a sneak peek of how keepers and animals—including goats, cows, sheep and ponies—start their day!
No advance registration required.
Friday, June 9, 5-8:30 p.m.
SuperZooPicnic: Polar Picnic!
Join us for an exclusive, after-hours celebration where members and their guests get the entire zoo to themselves for an evening of fun.

Tickets are required for this event, and will be available for sale in May. Look for your invitation in the mail.
