Zoolights at the Buffalo Zoo

Everyone’s favorite festive light show has returned—Zoo Lights at the Buffalo Zoo is back for another holiday season! Enjoy the Zoo after hours as you stroll through our illuminated winter wonderland. Take in the dazzling light displays (charge up your phone for those Instagram-worthy photos!), ride on our Happy Holidays Express Train, indulge in warm winter treats including a hot cocoa bar and s’mores, and visit with special guests like Santa (November 27–December 23) or the Snow Sisters (December 26–January 1)! M&T Bank Rainforest Falls and the Amphibian and Reptile Center will be open for an opportunity to warm up and visit with some of our animal residents—all other exhibits will be closed for the night. Zoo Lights kicks off on Sunday, November 27, 2022, and runs select nights through January 1, 2023 from 5:30 pm–9:00 pm. Doors close at 8:30 pm.
