The Erie Zoo will not be hosting the annual Erie Zoo Parade in 2022. At this time the zoo is focusing its resources and efforts towards progress on the zoo grounds to enhance our visitors' experience. We apologize to the community for absence of this beloved event and thank you for your understanding as we work on a new and exciting chapter for you at your Erie Zoo.
The mission of the Erie Zoo is to nurture an appreciation of the world and provide the community with meaningful educational and recreational experiences that foster a greater sense of awareness, stewardship and conservation of animals and plants.
