Kroger Discount Days offered December 1 through February 28, 2019  


Zoo Knoxville is offering $5 off  admission tickets during Kroger Discount Days, December 1, 2018, through February 28, 2019.


During Kroger Discount Days, guests can discover why winter is an enjoyable time to visit the zoo.  Many animals, including red pandas, river otters, elephants, gorillas, red wolves, lions and tigers, enjoy the cooler temperatures.  On days when the temperature drops below 40 degrees, some animals will be moved indoors, but visitors can still see most in their indoor viewing areas.  The Pilot Flying J Wee Play Adventure is a popular indoor area that’s a warm stop for creative play and reptile viewing during visits as well.


A December trip to the zoo can even include a visit to Santa’s Village, a special holiday encounter and photo opportunity with Santa Claus.  Santa’s Village will be open for holiday photos and Christmas wishes Thursday, Dec. 13 through Sunday, Dec. 16 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. each day in the heated Kids Cove Tent.   Santa’s Village is included with general admission.


Discounted tickets can be purchased at the zoo ticket window during regular zoo hours and online at  Discounted admission tickets must be used by Feb. 28, 2019, and cannot be combined with any other promotion, discount, or coupon.
