Pandaversary Party

The Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute and Chinese partners have been saving giant pandas for 50 years and it’s time to celebrate! Partygoers can enjoy special treats from the Chinese Embassy, lion dance performances, live music, panda-themed food specials, and the world premiere of Smithsonian Channel's "The Miracle Panda." 

Can’t get enough pandas in one weekend? Come back on Monday, April 18, to celebrate a special panda-themed Easter Monday 2022.
