Zoo Bloom

Sat., Mar. 16, 10:00am - 4:00pm

Celebrate the new Zoo season! 

Spring is almost here! It’s time to escape hibernation and head to the Maryland Zoo for our first big event of the new Zoo season. Join us Saturday, March 16th from 10am – 4pm for Zoo Bloom featuring Farm Day. We’ll be welcoming spring (and hopefully warmer weather) with special activities and treats for you and the animals, as well as learning about the animals that live on farms. All activities are included with Zoo admission!

As part of this special event, the Zoo will be featuring a full schedule of animal enrichment, where our animals will receive spring-themed treats. We’ll even have free treats on hand for you from our friends at Charm City Cakes. It’s a great day to see some of your favorite animals at their most active times…so don’t forget your camera!
