Roger Williams Park Zoo Hosts Holiday Lights Spectacular

Monday, November 1, 2021
Zoo Transforms into a Sparkling Winter Wonderland! Opens November 26.

Last year, the response to the Zoo’s inaugural Holiday Lights Spectacular was fantastic! Visitors loved seeing their favorite Zoo all dressed up to celebrate the season.

This year, guests will experience Holiday Lights Spectacular as an all-new walk-through event featuring festive, larger-than-life dazzling displays with 1.5 million illuminated lights! It’s a must-see event that should be on everyone’s holiday to-do list.

Holiday Lights, which will run on select dates from November 26 to January 2, brings New Englanders a jolly way to ring in the season.

And Santa’s coming to visit on December 2, 9, 16 and 23, 2021 from 5-7 pm.   This is free to guests with a same night 5 pm or 6 pm ticket and available on a first-come basis.

Tickets for Holiday Lights must be purchased in advance online.

Holiday Lights will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

WEATHER POLICY – Holiday Lights Spectacular is open rain or shine. In the case of light to moderate rain or snow, the show will be open. There will be no refunds or rescheduling. Please call in advance, check the website or visit Facebook for updates and weather policy.
