- This holiday season, come out to the Toronto Zoo Holiday Drive-Though for a family-friendly and COVID safe experience!-

This holiday season, come out to the Toronto Zoo Holiday Drive-Though for a family-friendly and COVID safe experience! See the beauty of winter at The Toronto Zoo as you and your family drive through our special holiday route from the safety and warmth of your own vehicle.

Drive past our 35 Foot tall Toronto Zoo Christmas Tree and our new Holiday Marketplace on your way to see Santa Claus himself! Make sure you bring your letter to Santa for a COVID safe drop off!*

After a drive by-visit with Santa, you will continue on through the Zoo to see a few special sights: Santa’s cottage where some of his reindeer (caribou) reside and our Enrichment Toy Workshop where you can see some of our Toronto Zoo Elves making toys for our animals.

Along the way, we will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items and toys for families in need. We encourage you to bring items and show the holiday spirit by helping out those in your community! Food donations will be going to Second Harvest and toy donations will be going to the Toronto Firefighters Toy Drive.

Revenue from this experience goes towards the operating costs and care of our animals. The Toronto Zoo is a not-for-profit organization that works towards connecting people, animals and conservation science to fight extinction.

Join Zoo this holiday season to experience the beauty of the Zoo in winter and celebrate in a safe and fun way!
