Wild Lights at the Louisville Zoo

Our popular lantern festival is back and brighter than ever! Back for the fifth year with a lineup of new lanterns, Wild Lights runs select nights March 23 through May 19. 

Dive deep and celebrate the vibrant colors of the coral reefs, see nature come to life with interactive moving displays and explore ancient Chinese myths and legends, including magnificent dragons and a breathtaking phoenix tunnel along a 1.4-mile pathway. The festival includes all-new illuminated archways and larger-than-life displays allowing you to become part of the magic. Select area highlights include a blooming morning glory corridor, a 23-foot-tall octopus and a walk-through phoenix tunnel. The wonder of Wild Lights is sure to create glowing smiles and bright memories for all.  We’ll see YOU at sundown! There will also be unique handcrafted goods available for purchase along with snacks and cocktails.

The event is wheelchair and stroller-friendly on a paved path. The festival is a rain or shine event and will be held 7 – 10 p.m. Thursday through Sunday nights from March 23 – May 19, 2024.
