2019 Princess Weekend at Santa Barbara Zoo on Saturday & Sunday, March 23-24



SATURDAY & SUNDAY, March 23-24, 2019


A hit with budding royalty since 2009 when the Zoo first raised the scepter for amphibian conservation, Princess Day is once again a two-day affair, dubbed Princess Weekend. Young female members of royal birth don tiaras, step into their glass slippers, and wear their finest sparkly ball gowns to this celebration of all-things-princess. But it’s not all dress-up, this event also is designed to bring attention to the many frogs, toads, and other amphibians around the world that face possible extinction.

Princess Weekend at the Santa Barbara Zoo is Saturday and Sunday, March 23-24, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Santa Barbara Zoo members only are allowed early admission at 9 a.m.). The event is free with Zoo admission: $18 adults, $13 seniors aged 65 and up, $11 children 2-12. Weekend parking is $11. For more info, visit www.sbzoo.org.

Real live princesses like Snow White and Sleeping Beauty, along with mermaids, fairies, and other fairytale characters, are present for photos and chat. Costumes are encouraged, and boys are also welcome, be they dressed as knights, princes, cowboys, pirates, or astronauts.

The Santa Barbara Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) whose accredited members are helping to preserve thousands of animals regionally and around the world through unequaled wildlife conservation programs. Visit www.sbzoo.org.
