Please save the date for Pride Night at Philadelphia Zoo. This event will take place during Friday Nights Dinos and Bites on Friday, June 18th. Attendees are encouraged to show their pride between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm for this special evening program. Local LGBTQ organizations will be on hand to network and supply information about their organizations. Stay tuned for complete details, partners, and programming. 

The Philadelphia Zoo (3400 W. Girard Avenue) is set to take a dinosaur-sized bite out of summer with the launch of Friday Nights Dinos and Bites. Beginning every Friday, from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend, the Zoo will host a new evening adventure with extended hours, amazing animals, life-size animatronic dinosaurs, and prehistoric-themed foods, that complement the new exhibit, Big Time: Life in an Endangerous Zone experience.

Newly-renamed, Bedrock Brews beer garden and Dino Bites fooderie, fire up pre-historic burger and beer pairings and other tasty treats to chomp on, making Friday Nights Dinos and Bites the perfect spot for a night out with the family or a dino-mite date night for adults. Friday Nights Dinos and Bites runs on Friday nights through 8:00pm. 

General Zoo Admission is $24 for ages 12+ and $19 for ages 2-11, children under 2 are free, plus entrance for Big Time $6 (adults and children ages 2+).  Food and drink is pay as you go.  Ticket reservations are available at  

“We are excited to extend our hours and kick-off Friday nights at the Zoo. This dino-mite program offers the perfect occasion to enjoy an evening sip and stroll while you try our newly-themed food and craft beer and wine menus. Guests can unwind after a long work week and make memories with family and friends, or make it a date night to remember.”
