St. Patrick's Party


March 18-19

San Francisco Zoo & Gardens is the “greenest” place in the Bay Area to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!  Not only do we have 100 acres of green space, dozens of green animals, and a vast portfolio of environmentally conscious programs, we’re also throwing a fabulous party on Saturday and Sunday, March 18 & 19.  Guests have the opportunity to enjoy live Irish music as well as traditional Irish food and beverages at The Depot, an outdoor dining space.  The band will play sets from 12:00-3:00 pm each day.  

If green space is your thing, explore seven distinct gardens full of native and exotic plants within the park.  From birds to snakes, a variety of green animals can be found in the Tropical Rainforest & Aviary, like Salvin’s amazon, plumed basilisk and emerald tree boa. Check out Keeper Talks and feedings like red panda, grizzly bear, polar bear, chimps and more to see animals eating ample greens. 

For all things green, stop by the Zoo and soak up the fun!
