Each year, the Zoo Calendar is filled with a wide variety of Special Events that may feature games, face painting, live entertainment or special education information.  Visitors are treated to these activities in addition to all of the artwork, animals and landscaping found within the North Carolina Zoo!

April events include the annual Eggstravaganza and Earth Day Celebration.  During May, we celebrate "Birds and Blooms" and "Save Our Snakes," while June activities focus upon "The Bear Necessities." Celebrate in Sept. the amazing lives of chimpanzees and gorillas at the "Great Apes" event. The event season culminates in Oct. with "HOWL-O-Ween", "Batology" and the long-time visitor favorite "Boo at the Zoo."
