Flock with Friends to the Zoo’s Spring Flamingle

It's time for a good flocking.

Nashville Zoo is inviting guests to shake their tailfeathers and kick-off spring with an adults-only gathering on April 8 from 7:30 – 10:00 p.m. With health and safety precautions in place, Spring Flamingle will offer drink samples, live music, local food trucks, up-close animal encounters and more!

Admission to Spring Flamingle will be limited. Guests will enter the event at two different times and follow a one-way path to help with social distancing. Drink samples from 15 suppliers will be offered and food trucks, as well as other dining options, will be available for purchase. Several animal habitats will be open for viewing and guests will have a chance to see some animals up-close on the Zoo's pathways.

Spring Flamingle is available for adults 21 and older and face masks will be required. General Admission tickets with a 7:30 p.m. entry are $75 and $35 for designated drivers. The Zoo is offering a Conservation Champion ticket that includes early admission at 6:30 p.m., unlimited carousel rides, access to an outdoor Conservation Lounge with bar, animal encounters, zookeepers on-hand to answer questions, and comedy performances. Conservation Champion tickets are $95 and $55 for designated drivers.

Proceeds from the Conservation Lounge benefit the Zoo’s local and global conservation efforts. Zoo members can save $5 on any Spring Flamingle ticket through April 2. On April 3, all ticket prices will increase by $10. Tickets and information can be found at
