Lantern Festival at Beardsley Zoo

November 23 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Continuing through December 2, “Glow Wild,” a brilliant, illuminated Lantern Festival will be held at the Zoo Thursday through Sunday evenings. Even larger than last year, this incredible evening festival will showcase more than 53 large scale illuminated sculptures that will amaze guests of all ages.

Spanning the width and breadth of Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo’s 30 acres, guests are invited to walk through glowing corridors. Displays of flora and fauna will light up the night sky, dazzling guests of all ages! The Glow Wild Lantern Festival is designed for everyone to enjoy –whether a family outing, romantic date, or coworker get-together. 

The festival will run from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. Timed tickets should be purchased online in advance and offered in half hour increments. A small number of tickets may be available at the door, depending upon Zoo capacity.

Wheelchairs and strollers will be available to rent on a first come first serve basis.
