This year’s Zoobilee will take place on SATURDAY, JULY 9 FROM 5 TO 10 P.M. and is sure to be an intriguing evening for all! As guests stroll through the zoo and JOURNEY INTO THE WILD, they will experience the Zoo’s enthusiasm for the rainforests of the Amazon and conservation, one of the Zoo’s key missions. Unique conservation and green-themed activities are sure to broaden their knowledge about how we can work together to change the world!
While on their journey around the zoo, guests can partake in ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME ANIMAL EXPERIENCES, like giraffe feedings and behind-the-scenes tours, SOOTHING MUSIC to accent the evening, and BRAZILIAN CUISINE in line with the event’s “Green” rainforest theme. Personal interactions with zookeepers and staff who care for a variety of animals, which call YOUR Topeka Zoo home, are sure to be an enlightening experience as well. Assorted auction tables will be situated throughout the zoo where guests can bid the night away on one-of-a-kind experiences.
At this year’s event, not only will guests learn more about conservation, but they’ll have a lot of fun doing it, ALL FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOUR TOPEKA ZOO! Zoobilee is sure to provide one of the most unique and pleasurable experiences guests could hope for. Zoobilee is a 21 and over event.

Join us on our journey to create a safari sojourn in our own backyard. Generations of visitors will enjoy a transformative “travel” experience blending educational, enrichment and entertainment opportunities at Gary Clarke’s Camp Cowabunga.
Camp Cowabunga, surrounded by elephants, wild dogs, hippos, red patas monkeys, lions and giraffes, will engage kids of all ages in imaginative play.
Wildlife habitats and educational exhibits will showcase Africa’s ecological and cultural imprint on the world.
Visit Gary Clarke’s tent in Dung Beetle Square and get a feel for life on safari. If you catch him in, he’ll bring the experience full circle with stories about tracking gorillas and wild dogs or getting splashed by crocodiles while paddling a canoe.
