One of the oldest zoos in the country, Roger Williams Park Zoo is located in Providence, RI amid a beautiful, 40-acre park setting.

Santa's Arrival & Parade

Usher in the holiday season with the Jolly Old Elf himself at Roger Williams Park Zoo! See Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive in grand style on November 29 in our parking lot at 9am. Then head into the Zoo for a festive holiday parade (free with Zoo admission). Ticket booths will open at 8:30am for families who would like to purchase tickets before Santa arrives.
