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
