Kroger Wild Winter Days 2023/2024

Dare to Care Food Drive & Admission Discount

Now through Feb. 29, 2024, your Louisville Zoo is teaming up with Kroger for our Wild Winter Days program.

Visitors who bring in one canned food item or non-perishable food item (per person) to donate to Dare to Care may purchase tickets at the Zoo ticketing windows for $10 per adult and $7 per child / senior ticket.  Remember that 25 cents of every admission ticket sold supports Louisville Zoo conservation efforts in Kentuckiana and around the world.

The discount is available at the ticketing windows only; not valid for online purchases. The offer is not valid for special fee-based programs, reciprocal discounts, for prepaid groups, field trips or with other discounts. No refunds will be provided for tickets prepaid in advance or purchase online. Multiple cans are appreciated but only one can per admission ticket is required for the discount; additional cans do not provide additional discounts.

Dare to Care

Since 2009, the Louisville Zoo has collected nearly 30,000 pounds of food, thanks to the generosity of its guests. That is the weight of five male rhinoceros.

Some of Dare to Care Food Bank’s most needed items include canned meats and fish, canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned soups and stews, canned beans, cereal, dry pasta, rice and peanut butter. Please no expired goods, opened or damaged packaging or any glass containers.

For more information on Dare to Care, visit daretocare.org.

Don’t forget to sign up for Kroger Community Rewards and support your Zoo at no cost to you!

The Zoo is open daily year-round. Fall/Winter hours continue through March 15, 2024 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. (exit by 5 p.m.). The Zoo is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
