Know Before You Go
Join us for our beloved zoo concert Jazz in the Park at the Abilene Zoo featuring Broadway Star, Kellie Rabke! This performance will be held at the Red Oak Plaza. We highly recommend that you bring lawn chairs as seating is extremely limited.
There are several items that we’d like you to know in advance of Saturday’s performance:
Parking is free and located in the front of the Zoo. We ask that you watch your step and secure your items in the car since there is limited lighting in the parking lot.
Please utilize the main entrance doors of the zoo. There will be people scanning tickets as you enter.
If you have any type of mobility impairment, golf carts will be available at the entrance of the zoo to take you to the concert location.
If you have pre-purchased tickets, you may check in at the Box Office table, which will be located at the front entrance of the Zoo. The Box Office will be open from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
When purchasing tickets online and selecting the eticket delivery method you will receive one email. This email will contain the order confirmation and the PDFs will be attached at the bottom of the email. If you do not receive this email, please check your spam folder. You can also CLICK HERE and scroll down just after the seating chart and click “Click here to resend tickets” to input the email you used to initially place the order.
Please contact our Box Office with any questions or if you need assistance with your e-tickets.
Walk up tickets will be available for purchase at the Box Office table located at the front of the entrance. Please note that the Box Office will close 30 minutes after the start of the concert.
We will be selling our 2023 Zoo Concert Series t-shirt as well as previous years’ shirts. There will also be charcuterie boxes for sale! The gift shop will be located in the pavilion this year!
The performance will last approximately 1 hour with no intermission. Please try to arrive at least thirty minutes before the concert start time of 7:30 PM.
This leaves time for parking, picking up tickets, getting your ticket scanned, visiting the restroom and finding your seat. If you arrive late you will be seated as soon as there is an appropriate pause in the performance.
INSTRUMENT PETTING ZOO
From 6:30-7:30pm we will have a string instrument petting zoo near the reptile exhibits! Come on by with your kiddos and learn about some new instruments.
We love the giraffes—and we hope you will too! Join us for free giraffe feedings. The kids will love it!
The Zoo exhibits will be open, so we encourage you to come early and enjoy the different areas of the Zoo. Please reference the Zoo’s map .
FOOD AND DRINK
KAO Lounge will be selling beer, wine, and mixed drinks on site in the pavilion. The Zoo will also have their concessions open. Our Gift Shop will have charcuterie boxes available for sale as well.
We encourage all attendees to bring their own chairs and blankets. There is very limited seating provided at the concert venue space. The spaces for seating will be first come first serve.
If there is inclement weather, we will cancel the concert and automatically refund all ticket purchases. Any weather-related messages will be updated on our social platforms.
