New this winter season! Your holiday tradition continues at Oakland Zoo with GLOWFARI, a wildly illuminated nighttime lantern festival this fall/winter season!

This brand-new, family-friendly experience features hundreds of larger-than-life animal lanterns throughout the Zoo, storytelling the ongoing journey of wildlife, the importance of every species on our planet, and Oakland Zoo's commitment to conservation.

Explore three different worlds:

BLUE PLANET: Sail the seven seas as you explore the habitats of your aquatic favorites, including sea turtles, jellyfish, penguins and more!

WILD KINGDOM: From tigers to tarantulas, bison to birds -- travel through Earth's diverse ecosystem to meet creatures from land to sky!

LAND OF THE LOST: Transport back in time to the dinosaur world filled with prehistoric rock stars like the T-rex, wooly mammoth, and pterodactyl!

Your nighttime, illuminated adventure awaits. Get your tickets now!
