Dallas Zoo's Safari Nights concert series features original artists and tribute bands who will fill the park with music. Safari Nights is included with zoo admission, so guests can see more than 2,000 animals during the day, then enjoy the concert and special after-hours programming at night.

Guests can start their evening with special keeper chats and Wonders of the Wild, a 20-minute, interactive animal show before the band takes the Sprint Stage at 7 pm. Guests can bring their own chairs and blankets, and enjoy a variety of indulgent treats, including food truck fare and cold drafts on tap from the craft beer garden.
