Glowfari is an exciting festive alternative to driving around searching for holiday lights this season. This is an all-new wildly illuminated night-time festival where you get see dazzling 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.
While strolling through (socially distanced, of course ) you’ll gaze upon breathtaking full-size elephants, giraffes, enormous lions, fluttering butterflies floating against the star-filled night sky, ride the brilliantly-lit gondolas to visit California Trail - where you’re transported back in time to a dinosaur world filled with prehistoric rock stars like the T-rex, stegosaurus, pterodactyls, and so much more!
There are dozens of towering and interactive glowing lanterns that await to entertain and enlighten you at every turn. This is an awesome opportunity to see hundreds of gigantic, larger-than-life, glowing animal lanterns throughout the Oakland Zoo to thrill both you and your family.
