International Flamingo Day: Pink Out!
April 26, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am
It’s International Flamingo Day!
What better way to observe this day than by celebrating the recent arrival of the newest members of the Louisville Zoo family — 49 stunning Chilean flamingos! With this addition, the Zoo now boasts a “flamboyance” (that’s a group of flamingos) of 87 birds. That’s the largest flamboyance of Chilean flamingos in North America!
Join us at 11 a.m. in the Americas Zone (across from the sloth exhibit), where you can witness the beauty of these colorful birds as they move into their outdoor habitat. Then, enjoy a day of fun and excitement at the Zoo. To make the occasion even more special, we invite all of our guests to show their support to these amazing animals by wearing pink.
International Flamingo Day honors the iconic pink bird and is celebrated annually on April 26. The holiday was started in 2020 by the Flamingo Specialist Group of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to draw attention to the difference between the six flamingo species.
All guests who wear pink will receive $2 off general admission — so be sure to wear your brightest, pinkest outfit! We can’t wait to see you!
