The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Bob Evans Farms, and the USO are proud to host a “Military Family Days” promotion from July 1 – July 4 to honor those who have served, and their loved ones who support them.

During Military Family Days, Bob Evans Farms is providing complimentary Columbus Zoo tickets to military personnel, both past and present, and their immediate family to enjoy time together while connecting with wildlife from all over the world. One of the locations to experience an up close and hands-on experience with adorable animals is Bob Evans Farms My Barn located in the Zoo’s North America region. Here, guests can pet a goat, brush a sheep, or even make new friends with the cows!

A limited amount of tickets are available and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Prior ticket reservations are required to receive this offer and can be made through the Columbus Zoo’s website.

Parking is $10 per vehicle, and immediate family is defined as active or non-active military personnel, their spouse/domestic partner, and any children living in the household.
