It's the Edmonton Valley Zoo's 60th Birthday, and we're excited to celebrate with a Tuesday night concert series at the Wildlife Amphitheatre!

Bring a small tarp or blanket, grab a patch of grass on the amphitheatre hill and enjoy a summer evening of great music. There’ll be a short intermission to refill your beverages and grab a snack at the new cafe, Sandwich & Sons.

Concert will run rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, the show will move to a sheltered venue inside the zoo. This concert is included with regular admission to the Edmonton Valley Zoo.
