CANCELED: Member Celebration

As a public health precaution, the Smithsonian is postponing or canceling all public events, programming and gatherings through July 1, 2020. As a result, this year’s Member Celebration has been canceled.

This April, Friends of the National Zoo would like to say thank you to its members — and what better way to say thanks than exclusive Zoo access?

At 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 25, the entire Zoo will open an hour early just to FONZ members. The Zoo’s amazing animal care team will show their love for members with special demos in the animal houses. From 7-11 a.m., members can also attend a celebration on the Great Meadow with a DJ for kids and complimentary breakfast bites (while they last).

Admission to the annual Member Celebration is free for all members, but RSVPs are required. You can RSVP for the event beginning Thursday, April 2. Members will get an email that day with information on how to RSVP. Remember to bring your RSVP confirmation and active membership cards to the event!
