Father’s Day

Zoo Knoxville celebrates Father’s Day with our annual tradition of FREE admission for all dads on Sunday, June 16, 2019.

Families can enjoy a day of zoo activities that include animal encounters and the Bird Show. Guests can explore the Boyd Family Asian Trek which is home to Gibbon Trails and Langur Landing, voted one of the top animal exhibits in the country by USA TODAY 10Best Reader’s Choice travel awards in 2018.  Visitors can also spend some time with the zoo’s gorilla father, Bantu, and his precocious youngsters Obi, Ubuntu and Andi in Gorilla Valley.
