Zoo Year’s Eve New Orleans

Looking for a family-friendly way to celebrate New Year’s Eve in New Orleans, Louisiana?  Then head to the Audubon Zoo!

The Audubon Zoo of New Orleans has a great kid-friendly New Year’s Eve event called Zoo Year’s Eve.  It runs from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM so you don’t have to worry about your child having to stay up too late!  Instead of counting down to midnight, you can count down to 12:00 PM noon!

But your child (and you!) can enjoy some of the festivities you would get from a later celebration.  You can put on a party hat or a New Year’s party headband.  There will be games, prizes, and music.  Instead of toasting champagne, you can toast Pepsi!

This is a fun, outdoor celebration that will take place, rain or shine.  You can bring your own chairs and blankets to the event.


Admission to this event is included in the cost of admission to the Audubon Zoo of New Orleans.
