Dreamnight at the Zoo

Dreamnight at the Zoo 2017: Another Magical Night!

On June 2, 2017, the Edmonton Valley Zoo hosted its tenth annual Dreamnight event.

The Edmonton Valley Zoo joined this initiative in 2008. Dreamnight now spans over 300 zoos internationally - with more zoos joining each year - with the goal of providing a night out for chronically ill or disabled children and their family members!

In partnership with the Stollery Children’s Hospital, the Edmonton Valley Zoo was able to host over 1600 participants for a totally FREE evening at the zoo. An evening filled with animal encounters, crafts, activities, rides, and lots of fun!

It was an incredible experience for both the families that attended the event in previous years, as well as for the staff and volunteers that helped make the event possible.

This year we had over 115 volunteers donate over 430 hours’ worth of service, not including the sponsorships from our vendors! 

Thank You to our Sponsors
