Wednesday Night Activities

Wednesday nights are extra special at Dakota Zoo, because we’re open late with special events!

Each Wednesday night, June through August, the Zoo is open until 7pm with a variety of exciting events including, puppet shows and story times by local public libraries, performances by acting and dance troupes, guest speakers & educational presentations.

Animal Close-ups in the Bismarck Tribune Discovery Center

Come see and touch some of your favorite critters up close. Skilled Zoo volunteers are on-hand to tell you about the animals and to answer any questions that you may have. 

Take a look at our Schedule of Events and let us put a little “wild” in your Wednesday!
