About this event

It’s adults only (18+) at the zoo’s second after-hours event of the summer. Join us to celebrate '90s block-party style among wildlife and gardens! Come dressed in your '90s best for no kids or crowds—just strolling, sipping, and possibly getting a little too competitive with some lawn games.

Activities Include:

Double-dutch, playground games, and chalk art at Foreman Pavilion

Cornhole, foosball, giant Jenga, and giant Connect Four

DJ Marcus Carter playing your favorite '90s hits

Animal chats and enrichment

Free rides on the AT&T Endangered Species Carousel

Cash bars and plenty of food for purchase

Plenty of spaces to stroll, sit, and sip with friends and family!


What parts of the zoo will be open, and will I see animals?

Adults Night Out will take place throughout Lincoln Park Zoo's buildings and grounds.

Animals that live at Lincoln Park Zoo always have the choice to be indoors or out, in view of the public or not. This is a zoo policy that promotes positive animal welfare. We hope many animals will choose to be outside, but they may choose to spend their evening indoors. Make sure to stop by animal habitats when they’re receiving enrichment (the schedule will be in your online program) for the highest likelihood of great animal viewing!
