The sun is out, flowers are blooming, and temperatures are warmer which means it is time for Nashville Zoo's ultimate annual spring celebration - Eggstravanzoo, presented by Kinder Joy® on Saturday, April 16. This event includes 12 scheduled egg hunts for kids, face painting, keeper talks, animal encounters and animal egg hunts!
Eggstravaganzoo is included with Zoo admission or membership, but entry time reservations are required as capacity is limited. We recommend purchasing tickets and reserving entry times as soon as possible as times will start to sell out.
Eggs hunts begin at 10:15 am and run all the way through 3:15 pm, giving kids and families the maximum amount of time for spring-filled fun. Each child will receive a goodie bag regardless of the number of eggs collected, and we ask each child to only participate in the hunt once. Goodie bags will be available near the egg hunt field.
During this visit, hoppy adventures will be taking place all day long including special animal shows and encounters. At 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm, the Zoo's Wild Works Animal Shows will take place in the Zoo's Amphitheater where our ambassador animals will show off their captivating natural abilities. Zookeeper talks for this day will be announced in the coming weeks.
