Penguin Parent Event

3PM – 7:30PM

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Doors Open 2:45PM-7:15PM

No admittance without official ticket

Tickets were mailed directly to Penguin Parents in late July.  If you are a Penguin Parent and did not receive your pass, or have questions regarding the event, please call 443-552-5280.

Penguin Parents will be the first guests to experience the new penguin exhibit, and the Zoo is thrilled to welcome our biggest penguin fans for a sneak peek at this exciting new state-of-the-art penguin home!

Penguin Parents do not need to RSVP for the Penguin Parent event, but will need to bring the ticket received in the mail on the day of the event.  The event is exclusive for Penguin Parents and their guests only, and no admittance will be granted without the official Penguin Parent event ticket.  Children under the age of two will be admitted without a pass.  The tickets are transferable to another person, for the Penguin Parent Event only, if a Penguin Parent is unable to attend the event.  No additional Penguin Parent Adoptions or tickets will be sold to ensure Penguin Parents and their guests are exclusively treated to this special event.  Penguin Parent Event tickets may not be exchanged for regular Zoo admission tickets, and are only valid September 23, 2014 during the event.  If you have questions regarding the event prior to September 23rd, please contact Hannah Corriveau by calling 443-552-5280 or emailing
