90Fest: Celebrating 90 Years!


We are marking a very special milestone in 2019 as it has been 90 amazing years since the San Francisco Zoo & Gardens was first established. Over the 90 year lifespan of our beloved zoo, our animals have been at the heart of our organization and our rich heritage is part of San Francisco’s history. 

This July, we invite you to celebrate with us! Join us every weekend in July (4-7, 13-14, 20-21, 27-28) for live music in The Depot where you can enjoy an outdoor BBQ with your family and friends and stay to enjoy the ambiance.  Don’t miss the special historical display in the Pachyderm Building featuring early Zoo photographs and fun facts about the Zoo and in pop culture in the many decades since the Zoo’s opening in 1929. We’re also featuring both self-guided and guided tours highlighting our rich history. In addition to live performances, guests can zip through the Zoo and experience a zipline on select dates from 11 am -4 pm.  There’s lots of things to do, sights to see, and new animals to meet as we celebrate 90 years!
