What is Festival de Animales

It is a children-focused Fiesta event at the San Antonio Zoo! My kids LOVED this event. We arrived late and missed most of the big activities at midday. The zoo is decorated, and it is beautiful!

Kid Friendly: YES! This event is planned for kids!

  • You can purchase the Fun Pack to the Butterfly Exhibit, Feed the Giraffes & Ride the Carousel

Mom Tips:

  • Wear closed toe, comfy shoes.
  • Arrive early or close to closing time (we went 2 hours before closing) so that you can enjoy it before it's too crowded.
  • No food or drinks allowed (Exceptions are bottled water, small snack-sized items, and baby food and formula).
  • Bring hand wipes and antibacterial.
  • Wagons and Strollers are allowed, or you can Rent One there.

And my overall is FOR Fiesta's Festival de Animales!!!!  We will definitely go back.

From Festival de Animales:

We’re celebrating the animals, culture, and food of Latin America! Take a tour of South America during this daytime event dedicated to highlighting San Antonio Zoo’s South American conservation efforts. Started in 2016, Fiesta de Animales highlights the Zoo’s conservation efforts in Latin America and educates guests on the animals native to Latin America that call the San Antonio Zoo home. Amazing up-close animal interactions, culinary delights, entertainment, and authentic merchandise from Latin America will delight guests while they immerse themselves in South American culture. A visit to Festival de Animales will help further the zoo’s vision of securing a future for wildlife through loving, engaging with, acting for, and protecting animals and their places.
