Lunar New Year 2017


Come Celebrate the Year of the Rooster

January 28-29 and February 4-5

To commemorate the Year of the Rooster, the San Francisco Zoo is thrilled to host two weekends of Lunar New Year celebrations! Soak up the ambiance of the occasion and marvel at traditional Chinese lion and folk dance performances at 11:00 and *1:30 daily near the Lion Fountain. Go on a Zodiac Scavenger Hunt through the Zoo to learn fun facts about the animals found on the Chinese calendar. Stop by the Family Farm to see "Mac" - the Zoo's rooster! 

Guests born in the Year of the Rooster (1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017) will receive free Zoo admission on that day. 

*On Saturday, February 4, the dance performance will be at 12:30 pm.
