Get the scoop on how our animals stay cool during the summer for National Ice Cream Day!

To chill-a-brate this cool day, our animals will enjoy special ice treat enrichment. Sweet treats are available for purchase at the Zoo’s popular Dippin’ Dots stand and don’t forget to pack your bathing suit for a run in the Plaza Fountains. Join in on the ice-cold fun!

Keeper Chats will be sprinkled throughout the day so you can learn how some of your favorite Zoo residents beat the heat.

Included in General Admission. Free for Virginia Zoo Members.
