Flood Relief Benefit Concert: June 26th 7pm-11pm
Admission: Pay what you can
The month of May was a tough one for The Texas Zoo! For most of the month, typically one of our busiest, we were forced closed by rising water of the Guadalupe. To help recoup our lost revenue we will be hosting a benefit concert with music by Clay Crockett and The Shotgun Riders. The evening will also hold a raffle and a few other ways to help the cause! Food and drink will be available for purchase.
$3 Days: July 8th & August 5th
Admission for general public is lowered to just $3 per person.
Native American Cultural Event: August 15th 9am-4pm
Passholders:Free $10 General Public
We will be having our Native American Cultural Event that will include authentic Native American musicians, dancers, vendors, artisans, as well as crafts, and storytellers! This is a great introduction to the Native American Culture. There are also Boyscout merit badge opportunities.
