Expedition ZooFalls: A Celebration of Local Zoo Pride

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 5:30 - 9:00 PM

Expedition Zoo Falls Final Logo 01

The Great Plains Zoo welcomes you to an exciting new adventure! Enjoy an evening at the Zoo after public closure with animals on exhibit, Zookeeper chats throughout the evening, and animal encounters! It will be an unforgettable evening of live music from the Hegg Brothers, gourmet food, premium drinks, and a silent auction just roaring with GPZoo experiences! Proceeds from the 2020 Expedition ZooFalls will go toward Animal Care, helping us to get back to greatness after the unfortunate closure due to COVID-19. 

Your support at Expedition ZooFalls helps our Zoo: 

  • Build momentum for a NEW Lion exhibit and breeding center!
  • Work to save over 40 endangered and threatened species, including the Eastern Black Rhino and Amur Tiger.
  • Care for all of the animals the Great Plains Zoo calls home. 

Entry is limited.  If you have questions, email

*Each ticket comes with access to all food vendors and (2) drink tickets to be used at the event. Cash bars are available after. 

The Zoo & Museum will be closing at 2:00 p.m. (last admission at 1:00 p.m.) on August 12 to prepare for Expedition ZooFalls.

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. ¬†The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. ¬†Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
