[POSTPONED] Snow Leopard Festival/Sledding at the Zoo

January 23, 2022 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Due to the ongoing surge in COVID-19 cases, the Snow Leopard Festival originally scheduled for January 23 has been postponed. The new date for the event is February 27. The Zoo will remain open for regular visits, but since this popular event involves a large number of people gathered in one area, we’ve decided to hold it at a later date.

Guests who currently have reservations for both Zoo admission and sledding wristbands on January 23 will automatically be rescheduled for February 27; there is no action required on your part. If you would like to cancel or check the status of your reservations, please contact the Zoo at (805) 962-5339 or zooinfo@sbzoo.org.


A rare blizzard hits the Zoo with 80 tons of snow for sledding and snow play for this frosty fun family festival. The snow leopard and other animals play in the snow and there are fun activities for the whole family.

Early 9 AM entry for SB Zoo Members only!

Cost: paid admission or SB Zoo Membership is required for entry, additional fee (TBD) for sledding and snow play. Make reservations today!
