March of the Penguins

July 29 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

The annual March of the Penguins event will take place on Saturday, July 29 at 10:15 a.m.! Every year, Magellanic penguin chicks hatched on Penguin Island go through “Fish School,” to learn how to swim, socialize and eat fish by hand. When it’s time to “graduate,” they take a ceremonial walk (or waddle) in front of our Zoo Members and the public to their permanent home on Penguin Island to join our colony of penguins.

This year, we have two chicks, one male and one female!

Space is limited. Please be advised of the entry times for various guest levels below:

  • 9 a.m. – Special Guardian member entry time. Guardians receive private Guardians-only VIP viewing section and continental breakfast. Reservations are required.
  • 9:30 a.m. – Zoo Member entry time
  • 10 a.m.  – General public entry time/Zoo opens
  • 10:15 a.m. – March begins on the Lion House side of Penguin Island

The event takes place at Penguin Island. We recommend you come straight to the area and find a place to view them.
