Free parking will be available in Hermann Park. Lots F and G are closest to the Zoo's main entrance at 6200 Hermann Park Drive. 

Check-In / T-Shirt Pick Up 

Check-in and t-shirt pick up will start at 7:00 AM in front of our main entrance. 

If you've already picked up your t-shirt and have your digital tickets, you can go directly through the Main Entrance to have your tickets scanned for entry. 

 If you did not pick up your t-shirt or fundraising prizes, please stop at check-in to receive those before entering the Zoo. 


All registered participants will receive their tickets via email today with the subject line, "Your Tickets from Houston Zoo..." To ensure a speedy entry on May 1, be sure to have the tickets pulled up on your phone. Children ages two and under do not require a ticket. 

Note: If you registered multiple participants with their own email address, they will have received their tickets separately. If you still cannot find all of your tickets, please reply to development@houstonzoo.org
