Teddy Bear Festival 2014


11:00 am to 3:30 pm

Free with paid Zoo admission. Each child who bring a teddy bear to the Zoo will receive a discount for $2 off admission. Offer cannot be combined with any other discount. 

Pete the Polar Bear and Baxter the Brown Bear will be on hand to greet children of all ages for live music by the Raytones, take-home crafts, and a special photo op with the whole family of Berenstein Bears. Plus, visitors can see a special animal enrichment activity at Grizzly Gulch: Grizzly sisters Kachina and Kiona will be searching for food in a simulated campsite.This fun learning opportunity gives us the chance to talk about camping safety and the importance of respecting wildlife during summer travels. Kids who bring their own teddy bear to the Zoo and get $2 off the price of admission can then bring that bear to get checked out by Build-a-Bear at the Teddy Bear Clinic. Join us, it promises to be a "beary" fun weekend filled with adventure.
