The Virginia Zoo’s Holiday Marketplace will open for one day only, Saturday, Nov. 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Located just inside the Zoo entrance on Compass Plaza, the Holiday Marketplace will feature door prizes, special seasonal offers, ornaments, train gift packs, animal art, other fun and interesting gifts, and special animal enrichment presentations.
The Zoo offers many gift options. Contribute to an animal’s annual care and feeding by arranging a Zoodoption in someone’s name. Purchase a membership for family or friends, so they can visit whenever they would like. Book a once-in-a-lifetime behind-the-scenes tour for someone special.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Zoo projects, including renovations to the Zoo Farm. The new Zoo Farm will ensure the Zoo continues to provide animal residents with the highest quality of life possible, while simultaneously improving the visitor experience.
