Lunar New Year 2016


Come Celebrate the Year of the Monkey
Activities from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm

To commemorate the Year of the Monkey, the San Francisco Zoo is thrilled to host Lunar New Year entertainment for children of all ages. Come marvel at Chinese acrobatic performances, traditional Chinese lion and folk dancing, and much more. Make a take-home monkey craft near the entertainment stage. Go on a Zodiac Scavenger Hunt through the Zoo to learn fun facts about the animals found on the Chinese calendar; complete the Zodiac Scavenger Hunt and receive a lucky red envelope with a special surprise inside. Don't forget to stop by the Primate Discovery Center to see all of our monkeys during this Year of Monkey Celebration!

Access to the celebration is free with paid admission to the Zoo. However, guests born in the Year of the Monkey (1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016) will receive free Zoo admission on that day.
