Thanks to a partnership with Regions Bank, all military veterans and active military personnel along with their immediate family will receive free admission to the Zoo.

Military Appreciation Day is offered in gratitude for the commitment, bravery and sacrifices made by those who serve our country. In addition to regular Zoo activities, a special children’s fun zone will be set up on Festival Field with bounce houses, games and activities. Organizations designed to inform and assist military families will also be on hand.

Visitors must show their military ID, veteran organization ID, discharge papers or other official military identification to be given free admission.

There is a $5 parking fee per vehicle.
