Let the Celebration Begin in


You’re invited—join the celebration!
We have a special year planned at the San Diego Zoo that includes displays on Centennial Plaza, two new film experiences, a new show at Wegeforth Bowl, and more. During May, we hosted a centennial community event in Balboa Park attended by more than 15,000 people—and all summer long, our Nighttime Zoo will keep the celebration going with live music, fun activities, and our spectacular Centennial pageantry puppets!
