Piggly Wiggly Day at the Zoo

August 20 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

On Saturday, August 20th, the first 500 guests through the doors of the NEW Zoo will receive free zoo admission, courtesy of Piggly Wiggly! The Zoo opens at 9:00 a.m. – so make plans to visit early. The 501st guest will receive a gift basket valued at $150 and sponsored by the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park.

To celebrate the relaunch of their loyalty program, Pig Points, Piggly Wiggly is giving away a pink 2022 Jeep Wrangler this summer! The jeep will be on-site at the NEW Zoo on Saturday, so be sure to stop by and register to win.

The NEW Zoo is excited about this family-friendly event. According to Carmen Murach, Interim Zoo Director, “Piggly Wiggly is generously paying the entrance fee for the first 500 guests to visit the Zoo on Saturday. We’re grateful to them for providing this opportunity for people who may not otherwise have been able to visit without such a sponsorship. We appreciate the support of Piggly Wiggly and we’re happy to pass their generosity on to our guests.”

While you’re here, be sure to take advantage of the FINAL day of our “edZOOcational” opportunities provided by the NEW Zoo’s Summer Interns! Discovery Stations and Animal Encounters will happen throughout the day, plus the Giraffe Feeding Experience and Children’s Zoo Feeding will be open for limited hours. See the full schedule of events at www.newzoo.org

The free admission discount is available only at the door on August 20th. The NEW Zoo is currently open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
