Kroger BOGO Days offered December 1 through February 28, 2017  


Knoxville, Tenn. – Zoo Knoxville is offering “Buy One, Get One Free” admission tickets during Kroger BOGO Days, December 1 through February 28, 2017. 

During Kroger BOGO Days, the zoo encourages guests to discover why this is the perfect time to see animals, including red pandas, river otters, elephants, gorillas, red wolves, lions and tigers, actively enjoying the cooler weather.  On days when the temperature drops below 40 degrees, some animals will be moved indoors, but visitors can still see many animals in their indoor viewing areas.  The Pilot Flying J Wee Play Adventure is a popular indoor play area that’s an entertaining stop for creative play during winter visits as well. 

A December trip to the zoo may even include a visit to Santa’s Village, a special holiday encounter and photo opportunity with Santa Claus.  Santa’s Village will be open for holiday photos and Christmas wishes December 8 through 11, from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. each day in the heated Kids Cove tent.  

Buy one, get one free tickets can be purchased at the zoo ticket window during regular zoo hours and online at  Discounted admission tickets must be used by Feb. 28, 2017, and cannot be combined with any other promotion, discount, or coupon.
