To honor our veterans and the sacrifices made to serve our nation, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium will host its “Veterans Free Day at the Zoo” event on Monday, November 11. During this special event, military personnel, both past and present, and their immediate family can enjoy free admission to the Zoo for the day.
Active-duty service members and veterans will need to present their military ID or other proof of service to receive this special admission offer. Parking is $10 per vehicle, and the admission offer, available only at the Zoo’s entrance, applies to veterans, retired military personnel, active duty military personnel, and Reserves and Guard members. Immediate family is defined as the military personnel’s spouse and any children living in the household.
As an added bonus this year, every guest who visits the Columbus Zoo on Monday, November 11 will receive a FREE ticket at the exit that can be used for one return visit to the Columbus Zoo between November 15 and January 5 to enjoy Wildlights, efficiently powered by AEP Ohio. This favorite Central Ohio family tradition features animated light shows, millions of twinkling LED lights, a 42-foot Sparkling Spruce presented by Meyers Jewelers, Santa and more!
