Celebrate the Fourth of July All Weekend at the Birmingham Zoo


In celebration of the Fourth of July holiday, Birmingham Zoo invites the community to join us for four days of fun starting July 4 through July 7!

In honor of Independence Day, the Zoo is giving FREE admission to veterans as well as all active and retired military and their dependents. Bring your proof of military service (military ID card, dependent ID card, driver’s license, etc.) to take part in all the fun the Zoo has to offer.

While you’re here, guests can feed the lorikeets in the Schaeffer Eye Center Lorikeet Aviary*, take a ride on the Full Moon Bar-B-Que Wild Slide*, watch the Red Diamond Sea Lion Show and do so much more! *Additional cost.

Fourth of July Weekend at the Zoo 2019 is made possible by our Presenting Sponsor the Trinka Davis Foundation.

The Birmingham Zoo is currently open daily from 9am to 5pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 9am to 6pm for extended summer hours on Saturday and Sunday.
