Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Jan. 20 • 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Free with donation of nonperishable food item

Service and community were central themes in the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

In celebration of his life and legacy, guests are invited each year in January to join the Indianapolis Zoo as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day presented by Honda Manufacturing. Along with our partners in White River State Park, parking and admission to the Zoo are free on this day with the donation of a non-perishable food item for Gleaner's Food Bank (minimum donation of one item per person).

Thank you to all of those who braved the cold temperatures for the 2019 Martin Luther King Jr. celebration. Your abundant donations were greatly appreciated.

Although the Zoo is usually closed on Mondays in January, weather permitting, it will be our privilege to open our gates on this day to those with a generous heart. You'll not only enjoy a special visit to the Zoo but also a special feeling of helping our community. Our hardier animals will be out to enjoy the day, including sea lions, tigers, walrus, brown bears and more. The Zoo's indoor exhibits—Oceans, Dolphin Dome, Deserts Dome, Simon Skjodt International Orangutan Center and Hilbert Conservatory - will be open as well. Plus guests can enjoy a free Dolphin Presentation.

The Zoo utilizes this annual observance of the civil rights leader's life to continue the on-going commitment and dedication to serving a diverse community. For nearly 20 years, Zoo and White River State Park have taken this opportunity to give back to our community. Through your contributions, we are able to support Gleaner's Food Bank and help feed families throughout our community!
