The Philadelphia Zoo transforms into a winter wonderland as Santa Claus travels to exotic places around the globe for Zoo Noel, a three-weekend-long holiday celebration. Be a part of the festivities and fun as you encounter unique scenes showcasing life-size replicas of Mr. Claus as he explores his role in the rainforest, the outback, the arctic, home on the farm and on safari.
Additionally, you can watch real-life Santa feed some of your favorite Zoo animals, and meet him in person at the Treehouse!
So ring in the season as you enjoy the red pandas exploring, the tigers pouncing, the polar bears frolicking and First Niagara Big Cat Falls’ newest cubs – snow leopards, Buck and Ranney – enjoying the season’s crisp winter air, at Zoo Noel!
