Sunset Fridays at San Francisco Zoo (July 7 – Aug. 25)

Every Friday through August 25th.

Join us on Friday evenings for SF Zoo’s Sunset Fridays beginning July 7!

Sunset Fridays, a new after-hours event for the whole family, will debut at San Francisco Zoo & Gardens on Friday, July 7 and will run consecutive Fridays thru August 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Playfield Lawn. Guests will enjoy live music by SFJazz and other special performances, outdoor bar, kid-friendly activities, ambassador animals and more

Historic Sunset

The event name harkens to SF Zoo’s unique proximity to the Pacific Ocean and location in the historic Sunset District, with timing for the summer event close to the sunset hour and in honor of the many animal species that are crepuscular – or active during sundown!

The first-time event will take place in the open Playfield area featuring:
• Elinor Friend Playground
• Historic Dentzel Carousel
• Playfield Café
• Performances on the Playfield Lawn
• Activities in the Wildlife Theater

While the entire Zoo will not be open, guests can meander to the Giraffe Lodge to see reticulated giraffe inside their indoor night quarters. (No guarantee that either will be available).
