Zoo Atlanta

IllumiNights, a Chinese animal lantern festival, is back at Zoo Atlanta! The lanterns—hand-crafted by Chinese artisans—create a wonderland for zoo visitors to enjoy. 

This nightly event runs 5:30-9:30pm. Select gift shops and food and beverage locations will be open throughout the zoo for purchase of festival-inspired items. 

Zoo Atlanta will look a little different! Most animals go indoors before dark, so they will not be in their habitats during IllumiNights. Visit the lanterns’ real-life counterparts during the day.
