It is with great sadness that the Racine Zoo announces the postponement of all of the 2020 concerts to 2021. This includes the new Music at the Zoo Concerts, Animal Crackers Junior Concert Series, and our beloved Animal Crackers Concert Series.

“This has been an incredibly difficult decision”, says Beth Heidorn, the Executive Director. “The Racine Zoo’s Board of Directors made the decision to postpone the 2020 concerts at the Zoo until 2021. This is due in large part to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding large gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Keep your tickets! All tickets purchased for concerts in 2020 will be honored in 2021 for their respective concerts. For questions, please email info@racinezoo.org

The rescheduled dates for 2021 are below: 

Music at the Zoo:

  • Friday, June 25, 2021—Johnny Russler and the Beach Bum Band 
  • Saturday, June 26, 2021—Hotel California, a Salute to the Eagles with opening band The Grimm Brothers 

Animal Crackers Junior:

  • Friday, July 9, 2021—Ralph’s World 
  • Friday, August 6, 2021—Imagination Movers

Animal Crackers:

  • Wednesday, July 7, 2021—The Flat Cats
  • Wednesday, July 21, 2021—Cindy Bradley
  • Wednesday, August 4, 2021—TBD
  • Wednesday, August 18, 2021—Walter Beasley

The Racine Zoo thanks all of their supporters, sponsors, and concert-goers. They look forward to a brighter and music-filled 2021!
