Father's Day at the Greenville Zoo

Happy Father’s Day from the Greenville Zoo!

 The Greenville Zoo is celebrating dads on Sunday, June 16.
Dads get free admission with a paid child admission. 
Support the Greenville Zoo

Celebrate National Zoo and Aquarium Month
by Supporting Your Local Zoo!

Here are a few ways you can do it:

Consider giving a recurring monthly gift. Donations play a vital role in sustaining the Greenville Zoo, as admission cost alone does not cover all operational needs. Give today at greenvillezoofoundation.org/Annual-Campaign.

Buy a Greenville Zoo membership. Get $5 off select memberships on Fridays in June! Want to visit other zoos? The Greenville Zoo is an AZA-accredited zoo, which means members get FREE or DISCOUNTED admission at many other AZA-accredited zoos. You can purchase a membership at the ticket booth or by calling 864-627-4542.

Attend a Greenville Zoo Foundation concert. The Greenville Zoo partners with PNC Bank to host the wildest outdoor concerts in Greenville – PNC Bank Zoo Tunes! See Hayes Carll on June 28 and St. Paul & the Broken Bones on August 24. Take advantage of our special Father’s Day discount by purchasing tickets to both concerts for only $85 by Sunday, June 16 at midnight!
