“Meet Me at the Zoo” is Back with Special Galactic Guests at the Nashville Zoo

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Be a Jedi and test your knowledge of the Force during Meet Me at the Zoo: Star Wars 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 28 at Nashville Zoo.

Meet Me at the Zoo is an event series for zoo visitors that offers special activities and character meet-and-greets.

Children can participate in the zoo's Jedi Training Camp, featuring games and activities built to test their knowledge of the Force, open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Star Wars characters will be available for photos and to meet their adventurous guests beginning at 10 a.m. until noon and resuming at 1-3 p.m. Characters will greet guests on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Nashville Zoo cannot guarantee a one-on-one meet and greet for each guest, but accommodate the most families as possible within the characters’ allotted time.

To maximize your chances of meeting the featured character(s), plan to arrive early to get a spot in line. Zoo staff will monitor the line and communicate to guests when the line exceeds character availability.

Guests are encouraged to dress as their favorite Star Wars character for this event. Meet Me at the Zoo is included with zoo admission or membership. This event is rain or shine.
